November ’23 Eye Candy Showcase

So… it’s that time again!

It’s time to let the skills of our customers shine in the November ’23 Eye Candy Showcase! I totally love seeing the wonderful bags our customers create using our patterns and this month’s lineup is absolutely amazing!

So what are we waiting for? Let’s get started!

Charlene Samanich modified her Katalina “wallet section” to include a coin purse
just like her EasyGo Wallet has (pictured at left above).
And now… Charlene seems to think that I’m turning her into a bag fanatic!

And Don Distler is back with an Easy Go Wallet that’s nothing short of spectacular!
He used Alexander Henry fabrics to achieve this unique look!

Our newest pattern is the Easy Go Wallet and Deb Anderson made this Ah-mazing version in the same Cleo fabrics as we used! And I have to say, these fabrics are amongst my favorites of all time! Great job Deb!

And this “Best of Show” ribbon was bestowed on
Kristy Fink and her fantastic Gemini FlightBag!
Looks like an obvious choice to me! 🙂

This is Lani Arnsmeyer‘s 1st Sling Along
and she says that she really loves it
even though its not perfect. But you know what?
I’m looking at this beauty and all I see is perfection!

Don Distler used “Day of the Dead” fabric for this Everyday Attache because
he felt it was “perfect for this design”! He went on to explain that
this holiday was to honor those who have gone on before us!
As for me- I am totally fascinated by his use of the bold yellow top stitching! How did you DO this Don?

And Jill Shopland used some Gustav Klimt fabrics to fashion a truly classic look for her Double Take and she says that she’s pleased with the result.

Leann Doritty was also quick to make a sample of our brand new design’s,
the Easy Go Wallet! She loves it and plans to make another soon! And I especially love that Leann used our new Multi Color Tweed zips in this wallet! It turned our fantastic!

And OH MY… has Don Distler been a busy guy this month or what? Here’s the Everyday Attache he made up for his wife’s friend. He added that he really like her fabric choices!

And last but not least this month, Becky Hausmann says she’s made SIX Sling Along‘s so far & she’s in love with this design, declaring it to be the perfect travel & everyday bag. Her make is impeccable and we’ll be featuring several other of Becky’s Sling Alongs in future Eye Candy posts!

And now, it’s YOUR turn!
