Elaine Bews beautiful bags

Elaine Bews –

Summer Artfest ’16 – Saturday 18th June – Inverkeithing Civic Centre

Elaine enjoys creating bags of all shapes and sizes using quality fabrics. All the bags are unique as she selects and matches fabrics with eye-catching colours, designs and texture. She also makes lovely accessories to mix and match with her bags. Owning one of Elaine’s bags will give you as much enjoyment and pleasure as she gained making it!



Elaine Bews will be at the Artfest ’16 Summer Art & Craft Market on Saturday 18th June, 11am-4.30pm at the Inverkeithing Civic Centre, Queen Street.


Elaine Bews – fun with bags of style

“I love designing and making bags. My aim is to make every bag individual and unique. I love selecting colourful and fun fabrics to create bags for work, fun, special occasions and for every day use too.”

Elaine Bews‘ hand-made bags are created using carefully chosen fabrics, some of which are sourced from fabric scraps and recycled clothing. All of these lovely designs would add a splash of colour and style to any outfit, and some are even reversible, making them even more flexible to wear! She also makes gorgeous accessories such as dog leads and key fobs to match and you’ll be able to ‘bagsie’ yourself a selection at our ART:JAM Art & Craft Market on Saturday 12th September 11am-4.30pm.

“Once upon a time there was a girl named Ann who loved to doodle.  

She doodled all the time, for as long as life would allow and she still does. Not so long ago Ann decided to share her doodles, and that was when the magic started.”

“I exclusively design fabric bags and accessories and hand-make each one with care. Each bag is boned, lined and comes with a handmade label inside. I have a range of shoppers, brooches and tweed keyrings. I also produce  brooch sewing kits all ready to sew at home.” Elizabeth Scott
