Eye Candy for March ’22


one of things I love best about designing patterns is to see the amazing things out customers create using our patterns! As a matter of fact, there’s not too much I like better than opening up an email that includes a picture or two of a customer-made bag! And here’s the deal, this month’s selection of bags is particularly diverse and i think you’re really going to enjoy them! Let me show you!

(FYI- ALL the bags pictured below were created using StudioKat Designs patterns)

So let’s get started!

Sylvia Turner entered this Flaptastic into a competition and came in 2nd! My only question is why it didn’t come in 1st because its lovely!
And speaking of Instagram, I first became aware of Barbro Wingard when she tagged me when she posted this picture of her beautiful Sling Along. She said she had trouble sourcing some of the supplies in Sweden but made do with appropriate substitutions for a wonderful finish!

But the Sling Along that Barbro Wingard is most proud of is this one which she unbelievably created out of raw leather, which means she had to first mark the pin holes with a spur, create the holes with an awl and then do ALL of the stitching BY HAND! She loves it and uses it everyday with 2 straps as a backpack! Bravo Barbro! I’m SO impressed!

Jeanette Jay says that she picks up used clothing whenever she runs across a piece that screams to be made into a bag. The exterior she used here for this Side Slinger used to be an embroidered denim shirt! What a cool idea!

Toni Fox-Cole made this Sling Along for an upcoming trip. She added an extra pocket on the front for her keys. She did such a great job that now her daughter wants one to use for a diaper bag.

This awesome Gemini FlightBag was spotted on Instagram and was created by #bedhogshop. She created it for a customer who specifically wanted to be able to carry her older model iPad iin this bag!

And now, it’s YOUR turn!

Do you have a favorite among these beauties? If so, why not leave the creator a little note in the space provided below? I’m sure it would “make their day”!
