The Glacier Pattern Bundle - All of the Tester Photos!

3/05/2019 01:21:00 PM

This pattern bundle is my March 2019 pattern for the Bag of the Month Club, and if you are a member of the club, it will now be in your account at If you are not a member, you can still join until the end of the Month, and after that it will not be available to purchase on my website until June 1st, 2019.

First, The Glacier Crossbody Bag, is a triple zipper “compartment” bag that features an additional vertical zip pocket in the front, as well as a credit card pocket & lipstick pocket in one of the outer compartments. It has a long adjustable strap that extends to 61” (155 cm) long.

The size of the Glacier Crossbody Bag is:
Width at base - 12 1/2” (32 cm) Height - 12 1/2” (32 cm) Overall Depth - 6” (15 cm)

The fabric on the cover of the pattern is a Stonehenge Ombre by Northcott, which was generously provided by

I thought it would be fun to pull out some of those outer pocket features and provide some smaller bags out of this substantial pattern. From the main pattern came the next pattern in the bundle, "Glacier Base Bags - 2 Versions".

The Glacier Base Bags pattern is an "intermediate" level version of the more advanced Glacier Crossbody Bag. The mini is made from the outer pockets of the Glacier Crossbody, and the large is made using the main compartment. Both have a long strap that extends to 61” (155 cm) long, and a padded compartment. The large size, which is the quicker make of the two, features an outer slip pocket with a flap closure that snaps shut, and the mini features a vertical zipper pocket.

The finished measurements for these bags are:
Mini: Width at base - 10” (25.4 cm) Height - 10” (24.5 cm) Depth - 2 1/2” (6.35 cm)
Large: Width at base - 12 1/2” (32 cm) Height - 12 1/2” (32 cm) Depth - 2 1/2” (6.35 cm)

These 2 patterns will be offered in a bundle, so you can make all 3 versions!

Let's see more inspiration!

Michelle Trip from Barabooboo Designs has made a beautiful Glacier Crossbody Bag using canvas and cork for a stunning result! 


Tracy Loyek from Purple Katz Quilting (who also sponsored my featured fabric) stitched up a very striking Glacier Crossbody bag in this cool galaxy print!

Tara Sinclair, bag maker and instructor from UhOh Creations, used some beautiful Tula Pink fabric for hers. Can you see the mice? Gorgeous! 

This is Cheryl Strain's (Cheryl's Quilts & Crafts) had a them going for all of her Bag of the Month Club bags - and the results were amazing! Love this blue too. 
Pat DeVore from Washington, created a stunning Glacier Crossbody with some beautiful blue suede and matching print. It turned out stunning! 

Natalie of Carry Hers by Natalie, stayed true to her classic and elegant looking style with this version. #Putabirdonit!

Jayne Baldwin of Totally Bagged! also made the Glacier Crossbody, and her butterfly bag is beautiful. Check out that gorgeous lining binding too! 

 This version in beautiful linen is by Kristi Bermel, owner of Paisley Lane Boutique!

We can count on Mel Euhus of Love M.E. Patterns to always make something fun. She made both the Glacier Crossbody, AND the Mini Glacier Base Bag - shown on right.

Now I really need to give a shout out to another lady, who also made 2 styles! This first bag by Barbara Hourigan, aka The Bag Lady, made this first Glacier Crossbody Bag in the red row by row fabric - stunning! After that, she made the LARGE size Glacier Base Bag, adding Piping and pockets. Thanks B!

Line Vienneau, a BC bag seller (Fine Line Designs), pulled this super cuter MINI Glacier Base Bag of her bag of tricks. I love how she did the zipper in two colours & added the back pocket.

Cyndi from Nosy Pepper Patterns, is at it again!! She made a LARGE size Glacier Base Bag, adding a back slip pocket. This is soooo adorable. Thanks for all of your help, Cyndi!

Another lady, who also made 2 styles, Susan McQuone totally amazed us. The first bag below in grey & yellow is the Glacier Crossbody Bag in Joel Dewberry fabric, wow! After that, she made the LARGE size Glacier Base Bag in the most stunning linen for a very classy look. Thank you, Susan! 

Thank you so much to all of my friends that have tested this bag pattern for me. It's thrilling to see the  finished results. This was a lot of fun for me, and I am really happy with the way these bags turned out. I could not have done it without you!!
