Bridget Bag – Blue Meadow


The Bridget Bag is the newest addition to my range. It is a cross body bag and a shoulder bag, with a comfortable wide (3.3cm) webbing strap that will adjust to hang comfortably on the shoulder or across the body. This style was developed following a request from a customer who is called (you guessed it) Bridget. She wanted a cross body bag that closed at the top with a magnetic button, but inside had a zip pocket as well as a patch pocket.

The Bridget Bag closes with a strong magnetic button, but you can customise this and for a small additional amount I can put in a top zip closure instead of the magnetic button.  Inside the main section of the bag is a zip pocket, a patch pocket and a key clip.

Dimensions (in cm): H 27 x W 24 x D 7

Please note each handbag that I make is an individual creation, so dimensions, the precise layout of the outer fabric and the colour of the jeans lining will vary slightly for each bag.



Sallyann’s Handmade Bags are beautifully made handbags and messenger bags created from unique rainproof fabrics and recycled jeans

  • handmade in Ireland
  • customisation available
  • suitable for vegans and vegetarians
  • timeless and practical designs to last

Each bag is unique because only one bag can be cut from each pair of jeans. I use as much of the jeans as I can in my manufacturing. The belt loops are used to attach the key clips inside the handbags, and the zips from the jeans are recycled into coin purses, using up the offcuts of the outer fabrics in the process.

The outer fabrics are my designs based on the beautiful wildflowers that grow locally around West Clare.
