New Shoulder Bag Pattern SNEAK PEEK!

5/10/2012 09:34:00 PM

I've officially stitched my last stitch in Australia...  my sewing machine will soon be going to it's new home, and so will I.  Our move home to Canada is getting closer and closer.  I will soon blink and it will be August 22nd.  I will be kissing these palm trees good-bye but kissing my much missed family hello.  Bitter-sweet.

I've just wrapped up my Steph In The City Bag, named after my beautiful daughter.  I do hope she loves it!  This shoulder bag is made with an adjustable strap, and a zipper or magnetic snap opening.   It has a couple of pocket choices as well.  Oh, and the measurements are both imperial and metric throughout the whole pattern.  I think this would look fabulous this summer in a Riley Blake chevron!!!

These are not the final pictures!  Just a sneak peek... I really hope to take some great pics that will show how much nicer this shoulder bag is in person.  Perhaps a job for tomorrow.  I think a photo shoot with Steph, herself... in the city... is in order, but that will have to wait until I get home.

I hope you like the bag, and it's pleats.  I must admit, the pleats were my starting inspiration.  I just had to make some pleats that angled out like that at the bottom - and the rest of the bag just developed from there.  It seams my bag patterns have a pleat theme.... not planned!!

Tell me what you think!!!

For Spring or Summer?  An Amy Butler cotton...

For Winter with a black wool coat?  A lovely Herringbone wool blend.

For school or university?  A sturdy canvas... from Ikea :)

I think for Autumn, Plaid - paired with a great pair of boots!
Thank you for looking.
