New Tutorial ~ The Zippered Bag Strap~

Good Morning!  I am so excited to share a new tutorial with you today, Zippered Bag Strap! This clever strap/zipper combo is based of a backpack I had in college. What I loved about it was the ability to use it as a single strap to carry over my shoulder, but when it was heavier I could unzip it and use it as a backpack.  I’ve yet to find something similar since then, so I decided it was time to make my {Read More}

~ Making Something New in September ~ Stash & Dash

This week I finally got around to making the popular Stash-and-Dash-Bag, a free pattern from byAnnie.com!  The pattern was released this summer along with a great (and detailed!) sew-along on her blog.  Time was not on my side this summer so I just downloaded the pattern and set it aside until the boys headed back to school.
