Shop Local, Shop handmade - Picket Fence Designs

Meredith of Picket Fence Designs in Poulsbo, Wa creates a variety of totes and bags using oil cloth and laminated cotton. 

Picket Fence Designs was born from a love of crafts. Meredith has always enjoyed paper crafts and the designs on the papers, and she loves vintage. So when she saw rolls of oil cloth she new she wanted to make something out of it! The shop she bought the fabric from had tote bags so that was it. Oil cloth reminded her of the 40's & 50's when people would use it to cover their tables.  It comes in  vibrant colors and designs and once she fell in love with every new bag design she created.


Great for shopping or a quick trip to the beach. Pockets, no pockets, magnetic closures, long or short handles, and some of her designs are reversible! Her most popular design below is the large market tote.

Meredith also does custom bags. In the past she has done canines and equine training treat bags. 

Follow her on Facebook  to see her latest designs. You can see her bags in person the next two weekends in Gig Harbor at Winterfest and then Tidefest.
