Wendy Walmsley - It's in the Bag


Having always had a love of making things, Wendy started out making wrapping paper storage bags for family and friends at Christmas. Realising that people had an interest in buying her hand-made items, she decided to take her hobby to the next level and make it into a small business venture. Her products are of a 'practical' nature, things you would make use of every day. 

When Wendy has inspiration for a product she hand-picks her materials from local suppliers then draws up her own patterns and experiments until she is 100% happy with the quality of the item. Although her product range is constantly growing, her current collection consists of door stops, bags, tissue holders, lavendar bags and most recently her upcycled lampshades which she covers with doilies to make a beautiful addition to any home. 

Wendy is always happy to take commissions for her products. To find out more about her offerings or to view a larger catalogue of her goods, you can search for 'It's in the bag' on Facebook or email her directly on
