An adjustable strap is great, but what happens when you want to add an adjustable strap to a bag that has swivel clips on both ends? Today I wanted to show you how! I used this method in my upcoming pattern for the Tudor Bag. I made this version in delicious Tula Pink ‘Elizabeth’ fabrics.
Even though this pattern was already available in my pattern shop, I just got the printed version back from my printer yesterday, so I figured this would be a good chance to blog about the pattern. This is my Byebye Love Bag sewing pattern (of course available as pdf and on paper), which was previously part of the Bag of the Month Club. The club was from January-June 2014, and we will be running the club again in January 2015. It was a 6-month club in which members received a brand new bag pattern each month. This was my contribution to the club, and for the paid version, I decided to slightly update the pattern and also add the small-sized bag to the templates and instructions. The small bag is minus the front pockets that the large bag has, so the small size is a quicker sew (but just as beautiful!).
Today, I’m ecstatic to present you to a new pattern, The Rockstar Bag! This is a good-sized bag, but without being too large. When I wrote this pattern, I decided to put as many details on the bag as I possibly could, so it’s got: detailed handles, (optional) rivets, a strap, a diagonal zippered flap, optional piping, lining zippered pockets, top zip closure, the works. I think it has sort of a retro feel to it. So I would classify it as an intermediate-level sewing pattern, although I must admit that it is not a short pattern. The finished size of the bag is 9-1/2” long x 10” tall x 7” deep.
Hi everyone! Today I’m pleased to show you my Katydid Bag, as part of the Safari Moon blog hop to showcase Safari Moon by Frances Newcombe for Art Gallery Fabrics. Frances is my good friend and came to visit me here in Chicago last summer. What she can do on the computer is seriously out of this world. She does motion graphics for NBC, and whenever I see a commercial on TV that I know she’s done for one of the NBC shows, I get all giddy and jump up and down. Ha.
6 of the best bag sewing pattern designers in the business are teaming together to bring you a 6-month membership club. The club runs from January-June of 2014. Each month, you will receive an exclusive and brand-new pdf bag sewing pattern from that month’s designer, delivered directly to your inbox. If you are familiar with even one of the designers, then you know that you can expect a high-quality and easy-to-understand sewing pattern each month! In addition to that, we’ll also be sharing with you our personal tips and tricks to bag-making!
Corrina of Another Thing Off the List is another very accomplished bag-maker! She’s pattern-tested a bunch of bags for me, and they have always been as professional looking as can be!
Hi, I’m Katy from The Littlest Thistle, and I’m so happy that Sara invited me back for another year to Purse Palooza. This year I thought I would listen to my blog readers (in exchange for them listening to me rabbiting on all the time) and review a nice, easy bag pattern, in this case the Tohoku Tote by Cheri from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar.
I am ecstatic to introduce you to my newest pdf sewing pattern, the Aragon Bag (also available on paper)! This is an intermediate-level sewing pattern, and although it was meant for the new mother in mind as a diaper bag, it would also make a great bag if you just have a lot of stuff, or a fantastic carry-on bag! I used Aurifil 40 wt. thread to sew the bag together because it is so strong and high-quality.
So, let me preface this post by saying that using a blog post entitled ‘The Bag That Made Me Turn to Drink’ is probably not the best way to sell a pattern that you have made and designed yourself. Hopefully you’ll read
most some of this post and at least hear me out. 😉
This giveaway is now closed. The winner is #180 Cathy K!
One of the booths that I simply could not leave Quilt Market without seeing was the booth for Serendipity Studio. I actually walked up to the information booth and asked (I was incredibly unprepared this time around…I left my packet of booth numbers at home, in addition to my make-up, contact lenses…all sorts of stuff).
