We have expanded to other musical instrument shapes - violins, cellos, guitars, ukuleles, banjos and pianos. If you are looking for music teacher gifts, you have found something special here.

We have expanded our music gifts to include note cards and prints of Becky's original paintings based on serious and humorous music lessons (on backs of cards), hand painted scarves, music jewelry. if you don't see what you want , please contact Becky at RMChaffee1@comcast.net. She loves requests!

 More about the bags:

Our violin handbag (and other bags) have the perfect amount of excitement that every outfit needs while providing you plenty of space to carry everything you need on the go. Whether you are a music fan or a player, they are a conversation starter everywhere. They are the best music gift for the violin or piano player and their mothers! They are a unique gift for the guitarist and banjo player in your life.


With fabulous fabrics, strong construction and stylish designs, you can't go wrong with Violettes.


No longer will you have to worry as a cellest or violinist, how to carry your string packs, rosin and shoulder rests to symphony. These handmade bags have you covered with spacious pockets, back pockets, a pencil loop, and adjustable/removable straps.


These bags hold your mobile phone, eye glasses, keys and more.


Use Violettes for work and play. It's a school bag. It's a shopping bag. It's a superhero. It's even your best friend for that fun night on the town. Large or small... Violettes are here to bring out the fashionista in you. So for music themed purses, look no further.



The hand-made violin bags come in three sizes: The ultimate, the original, and the mini.


The bag pictured above is the large-sized Violette, the Ultimate. It is a wonderful violin purse with pockets inside and on the back. It also fits anything that a cellist or violinist might want close at hand such as the largest size cello string packs or even a violin shoulder rest. It hangs off the back of an orchestral chair with a loop to clip around the chair leg. The manufactured versions come with a small leather wallet for credit cards and change.


The original (middle-sized) Violette is a violin purse for all ages. It's fun for school or going out on the town. It has a back pocket for a glasses or pens and a side pocket for a cell phone. As a gig bag (or caddie), it has removable straps such that they hang from a music stand by the inside clip during rehearsal to keep the musician’s paraphernalia close at hand. The caddies have a pocket specifically to hold the rectangular or round rosin, a pencil loop, and a back pocket for violin strings. If the corners of the string package are folded down, it fits perfectly in the curve of the caddie. There is also room for a small tuner, tissues, comb, cough drops… 


Violette minis are popular as elegant fun night purses. They are available in children’s fabric, perfect for the young string player with a rosin pocket and pencil loop. The mini violin purse can also be ordered as a fanny pack.


We also have manufactured Violette Ultimates to make them more affordable for you.

Becky has personally resewn each button and bead for quality control in addition to hand dyeing these purses for a delightful variety.

 Requests are welcomed for violin handbags, but cost can depend on request and my time.
