One of things I love best about designing patterns is to see the amazing things our customers create using our patterns! As a matter of fact, there’s not 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 are ESPECIALLY well made and I think you’re really going to enjoy them!
So…let me show you!
This is Deb Piereman‘s Sling Along which she said was “Sew much fun to make!” And even though peacock fabrics have been VERY popular for the past few years this is absolutely the most colorful peacock fabric I’ve seen yet!
And for this Sling Along, Nancy Rosa chose to forego the usual one-arm sling strap in favor to our new “backpack strap option” because the friend she made this for thought it would be perfect for an upcoming trip to Alaska! I’m crazy for the pop-of-pink interior!
Mickey Murray-Moor says she met up with us at the AQS Show in Paducah, KY this year and that’s when she picked up our newest pattern, the Bella BiFold. And I’m star struck with how she incorporated what must be a favorite quilt design into her bag exterior, and even the strap! GREAT job Mickey!
And this is Elaine Comer‘s Walkabout Wallet featuring fabric honoring the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Elaine said she loves the fabric, the message and the overall outcome of her new wallet and I do too! And just like Nancy Rosa above, Charlene Samanich also used our new add-on Backpack strap option when she made her Sling Along! She indicated that she saw the add-on pattern for these straps just in time to make the substitution for this project! 🙂Nancy Rosa created this awesome Sling Along for a friend who actually picked out this adventurous fabric on her own which is surprising since it looks so much like Nancy’s taste in fabric! Nancy said that the amazing floral print was found at Fabric Bazaar Art, which is an online Etsy seller. Jodi Dennhardt made a promise to a school colleague to make her a bag for her birthday and here it is… a decidedly stunning OutBreaker! This is the third OutBreaker that Jodi has made and she said it was FUN to do!And here’s Nancy Rosa‘s version of our HipBag Hybrid design! She said that this particular customer indicated that she intends to attach this bag to her bike when she starts college this Fall! Nancy said this was a FUN bag to make! And last but not least, Ashley Cone says she’s proud to say that she finally finished her very 1st HipBag Hybrid which is definitely one of the more ambitious bags in our lineup… so her pride is well-placed! She did a GREAT job!
