My new bag pattern.
I love this pattern!! Can I say that about my own pattern?!?!? Well, even if it is not politically correct etiquette I am going to!!
The opportunity was extended to me to teach sewing, knitting and crochet classes at my local sewing shop and I was so excited I could hardly contain myself! What a fabulous adventure (more about this later).
The Pleated Romance Bag was designed to teach the intermediate sewist class and the focus was to introduce students to pleating and installing a zipper.
I love the way the pleats give a subtle and mysterious glimpse of the fabric underneath. The more you put in your bag the more the pleats 'pop'. If you are a gal after my own heart your bag is always full so you pleats will always 'pop'!
The bag has an internal pocket and once you have added one it is a very simple process to add more! The zipper closure has fabric end tabs to give a clean and professional finish.
It is my intention to make myself this bag as my everyday bag and I had hoped to have it completed by the time this post went live. But, alas, life has been lived and time ran out!!! However, when I have completed it I will share it with you.
However, my good buddy Rachel has completed hers so I wanted to share it with you so you can see how different fabrics can make a bag so completely your own. Beautiful isn't it???
Until next time, happy quilting, knitting, sewing, crafting ....
