Hilary Ann Originals

Individual and Unique Handmade Bags & Gifts


Hilary Ann Originals was founded by Hilary Walsh and stems from her love of sewing and quilting.

She first started patchwork and quilting back in the 1990’s, and over the years has made many beautiful items using a variety of techniques.

Now, Hilary Ann Originals creates many individual and unique quilted items, from handbags to quilts, table runners and cushions, to baby gifts and decorative items for the home.

As well as creating unique and bespoke designs, Hilary Ann Originals is also proud to donate a percentage from every sale to charity. Over the years more than £10,000 has been donated to different charities from sales at craft fayres and coffee mornings as well as from private sales and commissions.

“I soon realised that I was quite a prolific quilter, and I needed an outlet for my work. Hence, Hilary Ann Originals was born. I enjoy the whole process from designing to making and completing each item, whether it be a large quilt, a quilted bag, or a small decorative item. I get quite a buzz when I see any of my bags being used. I have been asked to make many different items such as baby quilts, bags, Christmas tree skirts, to name a few, all of which are unique.”

What we make


Large or small, handheld or shoulder strap, and colours of your choice, we make handbags in all shapes and sizes to meet your requirements. You can commission a unique and bespoke bag for yourself or as a gift.


There are endless possibilities with quilts, from design to size to colours. Most of our commissions are as gifts for babies and children, although we’ve worked up to queen size too. We’re happy to discuss any requirements and help to create a unique quilt.

Home Decor

We’ve made a variety of decorative items for homes, including table runners, place mats, cushions and bed runners.

For Children

We love making special gifts that can be kept as keepsakes for babies, as well as children of all ages.

 We’re proud to be associated with Memorable Stitches by Rhian (keeping it in the family). Rhian specialises in creating handmade keepsake memory bears and blankets. A wonderful way to display treasured memories.


We love Christmas and decorating your home with special, individually made items makes the festive season even more magical.
