Thanks so much Tania! She is running another bag pattern giveaway on her blog at the moment, so head over and leave a comment to be in the running.
These patterns arrived last week from Montessori by hand.
I have read through the bag instructions, and they appear to be comprehensive and easy to follow, with plenty of photo to help. It includes full sized pattern pieces (I prefer this when I buy a pattern) and seems to have been well tested – the bag materials list includes good interfacings and structure. I’m really looking forward to making both patterns. Have you gathered that I have a bit of a pattern obsession/collection? And at the moment many of them are bag patterns!
This is the quick and easy version – no nine-patch, no quilting – mainly because I really needed a doorstop! I love these ones filled with beans/rice/wheat, because they don’t hurt if you stub your toe on them and because Stella can’t hurt herself playing with them. And they look good! The feature fabric is a bit of Amy Butler Nigella fabric.
