Now you're probably wondering what on earth does Darling Harbour have to do with the sneak peek I showed a couple of days ago. Easy, it's the name of my latest bag pattern.
This is what I started with, not bad but it was missing something.
A pocket to keep a cell phone safe, and handy.
I've had fun playing with different fabric combinations. Not all of which are my taste, but it's good to step outside of our comfort box when it comes to color.
These are just a few that I've been busy making up in the last couple of days. Got to make sure all the measurements work out.
Three new pattern testers have tested the pattern, and the draft pattern is on it's way back to me for editing.
I like to come up with easy ways for beginners to try a pattern that perhaps they otherwise wouldn't consider. Hence the broom handle post yesterday. It makes the construction of handles so much easier. I'm not suggesting that you all discard your sweeping so you can make bags, but it's amazing what we can find in our homes that works just as well as expensive gadgets.
I hope to have this pattern available in the next couple of weeks. There's a few more patterns swirling around in my head, but they will have to wait until after the craft fair.
