it's that time of year...

3.18.2011

to make you, your friend, or someone special, a new bag to tote around!!!


I'm super excited to share a tiny peak of my new pattern that will hopefully be available for purchase the middle of next week or so. 

I'm calling it the 241 Tote because it's really two different looking totes in one pattern, gotta love that.  One version is with two exterior side pockets, and the other has two exterior zippered pockets!


Fabrics are from Cloud 9 Fabric's latest collection Cut Out & Keep by Heather Moore and they're just as fabulous in real life as they are in pictures (fabrics available in April I believe).

Have a great weekend!

  14. I love the fabrics you chose. The cut of the bag kind of reminds me of the way Valerie from the last season of project runway cut some of her clothes...I don't know if you watch PR, but if you don't this comment is 75% dribbling nonsense. So there you go... Point is I like the bag :)

  31. Anna, I'd like to tweet about your pattern, but there is no share button (or I just can't see it? )Any help, please?

  34. Awesome! I'm excited for you to release the pattern. I think it would make a great park bag this summer.

    A question for you-- do you ever put zippers into the tops of your bags? A friend of mine has been asking me to make her a bag for months, but that's one of her requirements. Seems so hard, even when I look at tutorials.
