PPC26: Feeline Good


this is the fourth sample of I’ve shown you during this round of Purse Pattern Chronicles for the Bella BiFold design, and for the 1st time I can honestly say that I totally enjoyed making this particular sample because this fabric was a blast to work with!

I’ll tell you much more about this delightful fabric appropriately named “Feeline Good” later on in this post, but first let me show you more about this fun sample!

As you can see here, the Bella BiFold has two deep pouches with zippered entries. There’s two invisible magnetic snaps that keep these two pouches upright and closed, but there’s also a flap with a twist-lock closure to provide additional security.
And here in this view of the back side of this bag you can see another very deep, zippered storage area and speaking of zippers, this is the very first time that we’ve featured our brand new “tire track” zippers in one of our samples and I love how they add a whole new layer of interest without overwhelming the overall look of this bag!

So… now let’s talk about
this fun fabric!

It’s called “Feeline Good” and it’s sold as a 24″ X 44″ panel of eight cute cat prints. As you can see, the cats all occupy differing sized areas on the panel. I did enjoy playing with it but I must tell you that just like most all fussy-cutting projects it consumed a LOT of fabric to use it in the Bella BiFold design!

And here’s the deal… we’re carrying this fun fabric on our website now and selling it by the panel! You can get more info about it if you’re interested, by clicking HERE!

And here’s some vital info about this new pattern!

  • Bag Dimensions– 9″ wide X 9 1/4″ tall X 3″
  • Fabric Requirements– 1/2 yard exterior, 1/3 yard contrast, 3/4 yard lining
  • Projected Release Date– late March 2022.

And now, it’s YOUR turn!

Do you enjoy fussy-cutting projects? Or do you find the whole idea of fussy-cutting to be too laborious and time consuming? If so, following the release of this pattern, I plan on doing a post or two on fussy-cutting because I feel like I have a hassle-free method of accomplishing it! 🙂 And remember, we love reading your comments and answering your questions too, so please feel free to leave either or both in the space provided below.

    You do come up with some great fabrics and ideas. Thank you for that. I was wondering if it would be possible to insert RFID between the credit card slots with out making it to bulky? Thank you Judy

    • Kat on March 9, 2022 at 9:19 am

      I think that will work in this particular pattern but I would do it INSTEAD of adding interfacing. 🙂

      • Judy Fallon on March 9, 2022 at 11:54 am

        Thank you I didn’t think about doing that. I will be waiting for it to go on sale. Judy

    This bag is adorable! Your fussy cutting is admirable in its perfection and the zippers look great! To answer your question, yes, I do fussy cut fairly often and am looking forward to your posts about the hassle-free method you use.

      I have the pictures taken for it, so hopefully the post will be done b4 summer. I know…. that’s slow. 🙂

    Zippers look adorable with this print! Great job. Looking forward to purchasing this pattern!

    • Kat on March 9, 2022 at 8:35 pm

      Thanks Dianna! I like these new zips too! They’re so versatile! 🙂

    What is RFID?

    • Kat on March 15, 2022 at 5:11 pm

      RFID is an acronym for “radio-frequency identification” .

    Thank you for yet another GREAT pattern!!! I cannot wait to make this one!!! I’ve been looking for a really great CCL purse. The one that you have is awesome, but too large for me…. leaving me with two questions: 1. would you recommend one of your bags that could easily be used and or modified a bit for CCL? I ask because I love the ease of your patterns, the instructions are wonderfully clear and the fact that i can also obtain the hardware! No searching for the right size grommet, just purchase it all together! 2. would there be a chance that you would design a smaller CCL purse? Thank you so very much for your time, your patterns, hardware and clear and concise instructions!!!

      Well, we actually tool a lot of grief for designing the Guardian, the 1st CCL purse pattern. But since then we have quietly released several other patterns that could qualify in this way. They are as follows” the HipBag Hybrid, the Triple Play as well as the Side Slinger.
      Hope this info helps.
