This month we will be working on the Origami Bag Set.
There are six size choices available. I'm not expecting anybody to make all six (although I'd love to see the size difference in them all!), but I'm hoping with everybody we'll get a good variation in the sizes. Personally I am making 3 of the extra small bags. I already have my fabric picked out and my exterior pieces patched together.
We will be working with zippers this month, but don't let that discourage you! I promise you, zippers are not nearly as intimidating as you might think. If you are confused by the instructions in the pattern, there are lots of great tutorials online, and don't forget you can always ask questions in the Flickr group. Sara over at Sew Sweetness already has her pattern review ready as well.
This month's sponsor is Julie from Vibrant Designs. You might remember I did a pattern testing for her a couple weeks ago, and I really can't recommend her Heidi Bag enough. I love it! Make sure you check out Julie's Etsy shop for the Heidi Bag pattern as well as a great selection of completed bags. I'll share more about the giveaway later this week.
Now is the time to read through the pattern & decide what fabrics & zipper you'll use. Other than the zipper, this month should be another relatively easy pattern. But like I said don't let the zipper scare you!!! I look forward to seeing what everybody makes this month!
Until next time...
