Welcome + New Pattern + Special Offer!

Our online store has opened! Yay! Let’s celebrate with some special offers!

After months of hard work, my website is finally open!  I’m continuously in the process of adding new patterns, supplies, and tutorials.  My newest pattern is the Union Street Satchel

I designed this bag while living in my old apartment on Union Street. I think you will get lots of use out of this bag! The side straps on the bag snap in the middle, or on the sides, for two alternate looks. The interior of this satchel features one zipper pocket and one patch pocket. This simple satchel is the perfect size for shopping, as an everyday bag, as an overnight bag and more!

I’ve written the instructions to accommodate for quilter’s cotton and vinyl, as well as a quilted option. Included are step-by-step graphics to help make the written directions easier to understand. Also included are many sewing techniques and tips to help you achieve a quality, finished project. Each pattern is designed to help you learn and expand your sewing skills!

This pattern would not be possible without my wonderful group of pattern testers!  I appreciate their hard work and taking the time to help edit my pattern.  I’ve added pictures on my website of their samples.  They are incredibly talented – so I encourage you to go check out their personal websites too! 🙂
