New Patterns

We are still getting the back orders from our November pattern order, in ones and twos. Last week two Pattern Basket designs arrived, one of which was a complete surprise (more about that later) and a hand bag pattern from Fig Tree Designs.

I am particularly fond of Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Company's patterns, she writes clearly. You don't have to read it nine times and then call your best friend for an interpretive consultation.

Here is what Joanna says about this pattern
"We have designed a whole company of handbags that are easy to piece, simple to construct and super quick to make! I am not exaggerating when I tell you that you can make all of these in one day! These bags are truly made for the quilter- no special techniques or supplies. Just sew a few pieces together, quilt or embellish, fold a few corners, add some basic details & take yourself shopping with your new handbag in tow! "
The Easiest Handbags Ever pattern gives you five different styles of hand bag for the price of one pattern, added to that, all new patterns ship free from Felicitations and it is a positive bargain.

These are handbag patterns made for the quilter.They require no special finishing or crafting skills, use no interfacing or lining (unless of course you would like to add lining and then there are extra instructions for adding that). No buttons or pockets or zippers. Just an easy simple purse in 5 different styles, that ANY quilter can make.

The main problems for me,
  • which one should I make first?
  • which fabric box should I rummage through?

Y'all come back!
