PPC26: She Who Sews


this is the fifth sample I’ve shown you in support of our 1st new pattern of 2022, the Bella BiFold.

And guess what? I only have one more sample to reveal after this one before I have to make the all-important decision as to which one will represent this design on the pattern cover! But more about that later… for now let me give you a tour of THIS sample!

The Bella BiFold design features two completely separate & roomy zippered storage pouches. The front pouch is slightly shorter than the back pouch. And this is the very first time we’ve utilized a twist-lock closure in one of our designs which I feel is pretty important considering the important area in between these two pouches (which we’ll discuss below). We spent a significant amount of time figuring out a relatively easy way to install this lock, but don’t worry, if you’re completely against the thought of installing a twist-lock, you can always opt to use an additional mag snap closure here!
Here’s a good look at the bag back which features an additional zippered pocket which is almost full-length and full-width.

And here’s some vital info about the Bella BiFold 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!
