SEWING PATTERN GIVEAWAY: Win one of Rose's Uptown Hobo Bag Patterns! CLOSED

4/05/2013 10:23:00 AM

Hello my friends, I have a sewing pattern giveaway to offer you today!

Some of you already know Rose Beck from RosyPosy Knitting Designs.  I recently held a giveaway to win some of her knit shawl patterns (they are so gorgeous).  Well, Rose is also a very talented seamstress.  You may remember her leather version of the Emmaline Bag, it turned out so beautiful!  Lately, she's been busy working on some amazing bag patterns of her own. I've been lucky enough to be able to pattern test one of them, AND to be able give away one of the patterns.

My Version of the Uptown Hobo Bag

Rose's Uptown Hobo Bag was such a fun bag to make. The pattern is easy to follow, the pattern pieces are well labelled, and the photos are clear (and plentiful).  This is definitely a bag that an advanced beginner could tackle and be very pleased with the result.

Rose's Uptown Hobo Bag

I made my Uptown Hobo with Anna Maria Horner's beautiful Coreopsis in Coral from her Loulouthi collection. The fabric I chose was velveteen... and it turned out so soft and cozy! I love this fabric for this bag. Yum! I interfaced it with fusible woven interfacing, such as Shape-Flex 101 from Pellon and used and Essex yarn died linen for the interior. The linen doesn't really match the fabric at all, but just seems to work for me.  I love the coral and blue together.  I also added some double-cap studs to my strap.  Need some inspiration? You can see some other gorgeous versions made up in different fabrics HERE.

Pattern instructions also include directions for an easy slip pocket and an internal zipper pocket, if you choose to add one.

A nice opportunity to try some of my stitches!

This pattern makes up very fast and I think you get a huge reward for an nice afternoons work.  I really think this pattern has great value, and I recommend it highly.  You can read the materials list HERE, and buy the pattern HERE.

I really admire Rose's work, and it's an honour to support her pattern business.  Bag ladies like to stick together!
