Cotton Bags FOR KIDS

“Bugs” Cotton Bag For Kids – $20 (GIFTED)

100% cotton, machine wash and dry; use daily, wash nightly. 

Here’s an example of a super-cute, Maia-made Cotton Bag For Kids, with Maia’s Own ‘lock’ system (one handle slides up through a loop). Makes a sweet gift bag, or an everything, anywhere, anytime bag. Excellent for bringing cute things from one room to another and pausing in the hall for a photo op. 

“Birdie” Shoulder Bag For Kids – $25 (GIFTED)

100% cotton, machine wash and dry; use daily, wash nightly.

Maia’s Own “Birdie” Shoulder Bag For Kids couldn’t be cuter, and it knows it. For reference, it’s even cuter than it looks here, and it gets cuter when you zoom in (or when it’s held by someone who is small and cute.)

Cotton Bags FOR ALL AGES

“Purple” Shoulder Bag – $25 (SOLD)

100% cotton, machine wash and dry; use daily, wash nightly.

For taller folks, this purple cotton bag also has purple handles. It’s an adult bag, so it’s adult-sized – and it’s a bit more mature than the kids’ bags, but only by a little bit. It’s one of many of Maia’s Own kid-at-heart bags. 

“Rainbow Night” Shoulder Bag – $30 (SOLD)

100% cotton, machine wash and dry; designed for daily use and nightly washings, or vice versa.

Just added (Nov 19, 2020). Also has handles. Truly Maia’s Own — this bag is much bigger than the smaller version that Maia made yesterday, which she loves so much that she decided to keep it for herself!  Maia purchased several yards of this gorgeous fabric; what kind of bag would you like?


“Orange Striped” Ornamental Gift Bag – $20 (AVAILABLE)

100% cotton; machine wash and dry.

In the spirit of the upcoming season of giving, Maia has started making reusable ORNAMENTAL GIFT BAGS with colourful cotton fabric. Each with its very own name tag pocket and closure system. Hang them on the tree or with the stockings. Or make an ornamental gift bag wall – or doorway or window. The options are endless – and colourful! The “Orange Striped” bag seen here is orange-sized. 


Wristies – $20 (BOTH GIFTED)

Left: “Forest” – unknown fibers

Right: “Meadow” – 100% wool

Also for the upcoming season, for warm hearted people with ‘always cold’ hands, Maia’s Own (with Bobbi Jo and Sari’s help and inspiration) knitted WRISTIES are available in various colours and sizes; in wool, acrylic/wool, cotton or cotton blends. Knits, when surveyed, prefer to be hand washed, shaped and dried flat. Ask about custom Recycled Wristies, knitted using yarn from tired, old, well-loved sweaters. 


“Rainbow” Bracelet – $40 (AVAILABLE)

Sterling Silver with Semi-Precious Stones & Amber

Here’s an example of a shiny gift idea that is sure to put a smile on a loved one’s face. This little Heart Topper is Maia’s Own Sterling Silver Rainbow Bracelet with Red Coral, Amber, Citrine, Malachite, Blue Lapis and Amethyst. Truly one of a kind. Every silver link was lovingly wound with care, and the stones and Amber were carefully chosen with love. Just looking at a picture of this bracelet has soothing qualities.
