February Pattern:: The Bag of the Month Club

2/01/2014 08:10:00 AM

Good morning everyone!  Just a quick post to share pictures today because this is LAUNCH day of our new Parkland Modern Quilters Guild and I have to pack up and get over there to set up. So, SEW, excited!!

As some of you know, I am the February pattern designer in the bag of the month club and here is what I've put together for all of you:

The Butterfly Sling Purse features two exterior zipper pockets, a professional looking closure strap and a long, adjustable, cross body strap. 

The surprise is on the inside!  When you open just the closure strap only, you can access both a slip pocket and an internal zipper pocket, perfect for coins and bills. From there, you can also access both external zipper pockets that each have cards slot pockets for all of your charge cards. There is plenty of room in these other pockets for other items as well. This one is made up in a red cotton twill.

The "Inside":Pop the two magnetic snaps open to reveal your ID pocket. Perfect for showing your driver's license at the post office, a bus pass, or your office ID pass. 

There are two different hardware kits available in my shop, the Heart Kit, and the Rectangle Kit.

Here is one that Natalie of Carry Hers by Natalie made up!  Perfect for traveling!! You can read her pattern review here. 

I just wanted to share these pictures with you, my friends, but it's time to get ready for the Guild!  Whoop Whoop!! A sewing day!!!

Thanks for reading!!
