This month we'll be making the Reversible Everyday Shopper. And let me tell you, I sure wish this had been the first pattern in the book! It would have been a much better start than the Cosmo Bag, but at the very least I guess it can be a good break. :)
Like last month, Sara over at Sew Sweetness is really on a roll & has already shared her pattern review for this month's bag. It's a good place to start after you read through the pattern. I really like Sara's scrappy version, and this pattern certainly works well with various fabrics.
I'm using four different fabrics myself, all red or navy gingham, in three different sizes.
That smallest one on the right is rough on the eyes when cutting & sewing! I swear I was just about cross-eyed by the time I finished with it.
I've seen a few finished bags already in the Flickr album, so I know Sara & I aren't the only ones already hard at work. Be sure to share your pictures (fabric choices too!) and any questions you might have.
This month's giveaway will be a yard of FreeSpirit Olive Rose by Valori Wells, half yard each of these colors.
I'll have a linky party again at the end of the month for the drawing.
If you haven't gotten started yet, it's time to read through the pattern & get your fabrics picked out. There is a lot less cutting & fusing this month than we had to deal with last month, so it shouldn't take you a day or two to get that done like it might have last month. :)
Good luck as you get started!
Until next time...
