Whoa there’s a whole load of bag stuff going on here this week!
Well ok it’s just the patterns, no actual sewing! I was randomly picked for a prize for my contribution to 100 Quilts for Kids. The prize was my pick of 6, yes six of Sara’s wonderful patterns:
I spent quite a while browsing Sara’s shop, her bags are stunning but many of them are quite smart/classy/formal which to be honest is not really my style! So I opted for the patterns that I am more likely to make for me and or my children to use.
I’ve made a few lunch bags before and I don’t suppose it will be long before another one is required.
I love the idea of these Creative Maker cases and I’m already thinking about making some for Christmas.
Wallets are a handy, relatively quick make, I’m looking forward to trying this one out.
I like the look of both these bags, they’d be great for travel (I don’t do much of that but one day maybe I will!). What is really great about these patterns is the in-depth instructions, photo’s and the different versions that have been made by Sara’s testers.
On Friday morning I sat up in bed with a cup of tea and had a quick look on IG, I saw a post from Elizabeth Hartman with a 25% discount off all her patterns until midnight. Now here in the UK we are some hours ahead of the US and I had no idea if midnight had already passed! I quickly checked out her shop to purchase a pattern I’d had my eye on:
Yes it’s Preppy the Whale. All proceeds from the sale went to the Oregon Humane Society – I’m happy to help cats and dogs in this way. I have someone in mind for this quilt, I just need to do a fabric pull…see you later!
I’m linking up with Molli for this weeks:
