Haven't had time to make this yet, but from looking at the pattern, it looks like it's going to be just what I need. Thanks

The bag is larger than I expected it to be based on the photo of the young girls wearing it. It's still a gorgeous design. Very thankful for the designers recommendations on where to buy the "oddball" items like cord and upholstery vinyl. Beautiful design!

Love the convenience of downloadable instructions. Finding a design that is described as easy is wonderful and with clear instructions will make this a project I look forward to completing.

Having instructions that are downloadable is so convenient and easy. Love the word easy in description. That is my kind of pattern. Instructions look clear and I look forward to having a go and making my first cathedral style project. I have looked at other instruction for cathedral windows involving complicated squares to get the window effect and was very happy to discover these instructions involving circles instead.

Making for the grandgirls! Pattern is very nice!
I never carry a bag I didn't make
I make the things that I need and use everyday. Happily, other people like them and need them too.
My first product was a diaper bag that I designed for a friend of mine. I made her the bag I had always dreamed of with my babies. It was such a hit at the baby shower that I started to think about sewing as a business. That was in 2005.
A lot has happened since then. I have a licensing agreement with Simplicity which is beyond anything I ever dreamed about for this venture. More surprises: three of my products are featured in popular books, and I am the slipcovering instructor at Craftsy.com
I am most excited about my new slipcovering class that you can find over at Craftsy.com. It is professionally organized and filmed. Students are creating amazing slipcovers with it. Here is a link to the class:
I always have about a dozen projects in process at any given time. I wish I could pump out patterns faster for you all, but I am just one person. I dream of expanding and having help, so I can focus more on designing new bags, clothes, and furniture too.
I have added the very talented and meticulous Alice as a production assistant. I design and write patterns all by myself. Alice does some of the sewing after the patterns are written.
Owner, Maker, Designer
I love to sew. I started documenting the process in 2006 when I wrote my first sewing pattern as part of applying for a patent. I love it when people use my patterns to start (or augment) their own sewing business. I design and make everything here.
