Hi all! I haven’t been blogging much lately, but I wanted to show you my new bag pattern that came out for the Bag of the Month Club that started on January 1st. This is an exclusive pattern that is only available for club members; besides myself, there are 5 other bag designers involved in this project, and you can read more about the club (or join if you are interested!) right here (2014 club now closed)!
I’d like to introduce you to this month’s pattern for the club, called the Bye Bye Love Bag.
If you’re familiar with myself or my blog, you know that when I release a pattern, I have tons and tons of testers. However, this time around, I only had about 3 weeks to get my pattern written and have it tested, so I didn’t think 30 testers would be appropriate. 😉
Tracy from I’ve Got a Notion stepped up to the plate, not making just one, but two versions of the bag (why, I guess she really liked this one!!). I like that she added the solid to the bottom of both of her bags, too.
Cyndi from The Nosy Pepper made this beautiful yellow version. She decided to make a flat strap instead of the rolled strap, and this one was a Christmas gift! Wonderful work as always, Cyndi!
Danielle from Paisley Avenue Handemade was the first member of the club (that I know of) to complete her bag – the pattern came out a week ago and she’s already finished! Isn’t her version amazing?! I particularly love the large buttons on the front – I’m sort of jealous that I hadn’t thought of that, lol!!
Anyway, there is still plenty of time to join the Bag of the Month Club! Join now and get your January pattern within 24 hours, and every month through June you will receive your new pattern on the 1st of the month. Something to look forward to in your inbox!!
