Who is Bags by Lou Lou?

Bags by Lou Lou was launched in 2015 by me, Katie Lou! My boutique showcases sewing creations made lovingly in great detail by me, inspired by beautiful patterns and designer fabrics. I love to create one-of-a-kind pieces that will stand the test of time, using quality fabric and hardware. 

I have a background in beauty therapy, but from a young age I always loved to sew. I decided to follow my passion for sewing when an ongoing health battle found me needing to undergo major surgery. After my surgery, returning to full time work in the beauty industry became a challenge, so I decided to follow my other passion – sewing!

At Bags by Lou Lou you will find beautiful one-of-a-kind, handmade, quality crafted bags, handbags, clutches, kids’ soft toys and more. All items are one-offs made by me with great care and love. Custom orders are available, and I also teach home-based sewing classes on the Gold Coast.

If you have any special requests for items please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will see if I can help you. Take a look around and see what gorgeous goodies you discover!

Why choose Bags by Lou Lou?

Do you ever find it difficult to find exactly the type of bag you want in stores, with all the right features, made in the perfect colour, material, size or design?! Or, have you ever bought an expensive brand name bag, only to use it a few times when the zipper on it breaks?! I know I have and a lot of my customers have too!

That’s what makes it so special to have a custom bag or handmade gift designed and made especially for you by Bags by Lou Lou! You know that it has all the right features and is exactly what you want. And you know that it has been made with great care and detail and is of the highest quality! Most of my customers desire individuality and creativity, and I am proud to be able to fulfil their desire through the beautiful custom pieces I personally create! A Beauty Therapist by trade, I am also quite a perfectionist, which shows in the quality of my sewing! 

At Bags by Lou Lou I individually work with you to create the piece that you want! I hand pick the highest quality fabric and hardware, carefully sew each part of your pattern together, and I put so much love into all of my pieces. I truly love what I do and I enjoy making my customers the precise piece that will suit their personality, style, and favourite colours (or those of the gift recipient), and which makes them smile every time they look at it. I have such a passion for working individually with you as my customer to create the exact bag, baby gift, kids costume or handmade gift that you are looking for. It is also why I offer a range of designs, sizes, shapes and colours!
