First off-thank you for the overwhelming flow of comments and email to me and my family over the loss of our grandmother. I hope I haven't left everyone with the thoughts of my being in a deep state of depression by not posting. We are all doing very well, death is never fun or easy to deal with, but it is not the end. We'll see each other again and laugh and cry. Thank you for the kind words, they have really lifted me up!
The reason for the lack of posting has been due to extreme busy-ness. I won't go into the list, it would just be boring. :) I'll just push on and share another pattern! Quick note though on my website-a few of you noticed that it was coming together and put through orders. We weren't quite ready to take them yet and the site has been put back on "coming soon." It will be "here" soon!
I am not exactly "known" for bag making. In fact I wasn't really planning on doing bag patterns as there are already so many wonderful ones out there. Children's clothing is my niche in the market but about 4 months ago I got the idea for this bag and couldn't get it out of my mind, so here it is! This is actually the first bag I have ever designed and it is super easy to make! The pattern includes two options. A straight messenger style (reversible!) and a gathered version that is oh so fun!
My friend Erin was game to come out with me and be my model. It was the first time I have taken pictures of an adult modeling something and it was fun! Ah, you have to know Erin I suppose to truly appreciate what a great and easy to work with model she was. Thank you!
The only problem with having so many great pictures is that I don't know which to pick for the cover! What do you think? The 3 I'm debating between are the ones with the logo on them...hmmm..
I just realized that most of the bags we took pictures of are the straight messenger style version! I'll need to take some more of the gathered bag because it is so cute!
