~My New Oslo Craft Bag~

I love reading the London-based Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine on my iPad.  It’s not just quilting goodness I’ll see each month either.  Many times a quick pouch, bag or other small quick sew is presented as well. Issue 34 arrived recently and in it was The Oslo Craft Bag by Sara Lawson from Sew Sweetness. Who can resist sewing up a bag designed just for our crafts?!  I was also in desperate need of a storage solution next to {Read More}

March Bag Review ~ Maisie by Swoon Patterns ~

I like to try new bag patterns once a month.  Sometimes they are from new to me designers, other times they are from designers I enjoy.  This month I am sharing a new pattern from Swoon called Maisie.  To see previous months reviews read February , January, and November.

February Bag Review – Poolside Tote by Noodlehead

Swoon Patterns ~ My New Harriet Expandable Tote ~

This is the third Swoon Pattern I own.  I have previously made Donna as part of Purse Palooza and Olive and enjoyed each one very much.  I really like how Alicia formats her patterns and explains them. Simple and to the point with great visual details to guide me along. What’s so unique about {Read More}

Make Something New ~ November ~

I have been busy behind the scenes here lately writing and editing a pattern or two, but I haven’t forgot about my blog! On Monday, I took a break to sew up a new-to-me pattern by Michelle Patterns called the Aster Wristlet. Michelle’s Bucket Bag pattern was one of the first bag patterns I ever purchased, and since then I have collected a few more!  I’m a big fan of her patterns and style and always recommend her to people wanting {Read More}
