Alexis Shoulder Bag, New Pattern

This is a new pattern for me Alexis. The fabric is Timeless Treasures. It is just beautiful. The flowers just jump out at you. The detail is amazing. This is a wonderful bag to carry and easy pattern to make.
The bag has a double shoulder strap with two slip pockets on the outside. Each has a closure.
The front has a large flap that closes the bag and the front slip pocket as well. The back of the bag has a button closure with a tab. Very cute.
The inside of the bag is fully lined with pockets. The large flap on the front of the bag has a magnetic closure.
This bag is so nice, great for the spring, easy to make. The bag is available for purchase.

Sew Along for January 2009

I am having my very first Sew Along in January. The sew along is an on line class that I am having for free. It is being held on my handbag yahoo group "Bags to Brag". I am very excited to do this.

The image above is the bag we are going to be making. I have so far 172 people signed up for it.

The bag is adorable. Zipper pocket on the front and more pockets on the inside. Flap closure with a magnetic snap.

I have noticed a lot of people were commenting on how they have never put in a zipper before. So this is new step for me to teach them how to install a zipper.

I think that the sew along is going to go very well. I have my moderators to help me along plus fabulous experienced members with years of sewing.

I never expected that 172 people would sign up for this.

My first session is going to be on January 3 2009. It is 4 sessions long which will be posted each Saturday of the month. They will have a week to complete each session.

If this works out I plan to have more.

I really enjoy what I do.

I also have some more exciting news, my group now has over 2000 members. That is amazing. What a way to bring in the new year. Yeah!

I will keep everyone posted of my results.
