October 2019 Eye Candy


ALL of the bags pictured below were created using our patterns & either shared on our FaceBook Group page, or mailed to us directly!
But here’s the deal… even though last month’s Eye Candy was wonderful, THIS month’s Eye Candy is seriously AMAZING!

So let’s get started, shall we?

Here’s my favorite “Eye Candy” for October 2019!

Don Distler is back and this time he made a bag for his lovely wife Susan, their resident “Butterfly Lady”, hence the butterfly embroidery on this amazing Bangle Buddie!

Dawn Eratt used a white faux suede along w/a metallic contrast & a couple of our newish ALL silver zips which were a perfect match for this cool Sling Along! The applique on the front is a handmade Indian design.

And Virginia Barbaro created this Sling Along ENTIRELY from recycled materials! The fabrics are from an upholstery project & the zippers/hardware were salvaged from an old camera bag!

Maureen Obuch said that it was with great trepidation that she used embossed vinyl for her Everyday Attache, but is relieved to say that it worked out fine!

And Don Distler is back with an absolutely awe-inspiring Everyday Attache that literally could be right at home on the pages of Vogue Magazine! I can see that he has really honed his fussy-cutting skills also GREAT job Don!

And Pendleton Wool never looks so good as it does on this wonderfully made Sling Along by Kristy Fink! She plans on entering it into the New Mexico State Fair. Good Luck Kristy!

And Heidi Munk is all set for Halloween parties with the “spooky” rendition of our Go-Go Compact! How long will we love this little bag? Quoth the raven… “Forever More!”

Jodie Dagenhardt made a calculatedly smart choice when she paired waterproof fabric on the exterior front pocket of her Sling Along with “Do the Math” contrast for the contrast! (She’s a math teacher.)

And Kathy Burkett was really happy to finally be able to announce that she finished her Sling Along. I love her fabric choices !

And finally, Marion Pool has enjoyed carrying her Guardian SO much that she has done so exclusively for over a year now and she STILL gets compliments on a regular basis on it!

So there you have it!

    Where can I find the fabric for the bag that Don Distle used for his bag?
