One of things I love best about designing patterns is seeing the incredible bags 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!
Alma Lou Annab calls this bag her “Guardian revival”. Years ago she gifted one to her son’s MIL (who is 90), and apparently it is now thread-bare so she made her this new one! Instead of the credit card feature though, she substituted a mesh glasses holder.
This is Dale Whyte‘s “Disney” Sling Along and she says she’s getting better with each one she makes! She also added that she learned early on NOT to rush the process. And I’ll bet she’s attracting a lot of attention at the park when she’s carrying this bag!
Jayne Griffith reported that this was her very first attempt at the Sling Along design and even though there were a few “oops” along the way, none of them were noteworthy. She loves her new bag and the Go-Go Compact is next on her to-do list!
And Betty Henry said she hit a “little snag” in making her Sling Along but she simply posted a question in our FaceBook Sewing Group and was soon well on her way with these beautiful results!
Gail Wisun-Gooch was thrilled to have finally finished her Gemini FlightBag. She said that there were MANY distractions along the way but the finished result is beautiful! Gail also added a key ring & RFID blocking fabric for the credit card area!
Kris Hicks said that she LOVES her DittyRoo. It’s a little large for an everyday bag but GREAT when you need a little more room for water bottles, sunblock and the like! Kris is so happy with the result and can’t wait to try making a few more SKD bags!
And here’s Renee-Claude Pageau‘s 1st Sling Along. Renee bought the pattern and supplies from us at the AQS Paducah KY show and if I’m completely honest I’d have to say that I actually like the Skylines fabric in blue (as seen here) better than the original green we pictured on the pattern cover for this design! And Nancy Rosa says that lately most of her customers have been asking for their Sling Along to be made up with backpack straps instead of the one-arm sling strap and here is her most recent make!
And finally, Brigid Johnson made up this Side Slinger in fabric her sister gave her so she somehow feels she should gift it to her, but that the engineering on this pattern is “SO sublime” that she’s keeping it for herself & making her another! I LOVE this gal & her bag!
And now, it’s YOUR turn!
