Yes, it's that time of year again...I've got nothing interesting at all to talk about, because every waking moment is spent in the studio, but I'm starting to have some pretty cool stuff to show off.
Pam has designed yet another adorable bag and it's my job to test the pattern and make samples. She comes up with the prototype, sticks some notes inside, and then pretty much tosses it out her car window to me as she drives by. And that's not much of an exaggeration. I figure if I can make a bag, anyone can. I'm definitely 3D challenged.
This is the first version, 100% Red Rose Farm. I'll be making at least a couple more for the pattern cover and for our booth--with different fabrics.
It has a scrappy gusset that's perfect for charm squares or left over jelly roll bits. Of course it has ruffles--while you certainly don't have to add them, why wouldn't you?
I just love it--it's pretty and very practical--nice size, not too deep, big wide pocket inside. I'm seriously looking forward to making a few more. And that's just one of the new bag patterns for this year!
I about died when I first saw these handles--aren't they perfect? I'm thinking of starting to carry that sort of thing on my website, so let me know if that's a plan you like!
