Fabric and Pattern Crushes
Bonnie Christine from her Hello, Bear line and keep reordering it because I keep using it. I have made Sloan Bags from this. I just took my Sloan Bag to Eastern Europe and kept waiting for women to tap me on the shoulder and say, "What a beautiful bag - where did you get it?" And while that didn't happen, I know that's what many were thinking! I also love this Arabesque pattern from Sara Lawson at Sew Sweetness (it's a free download - have you been wanting to try one of her patterns? This is a perfect starter pattern). I made one of these Arabesque bags for my sister-in-law's birthday two years ago. and she has requested a new bag and chose this fabric. (Yippee!) As long as I was making one, I decided to make a second one. Just because. And a couple of little key fobs. Because... Why not? At Terry's request I added an exterior pocket, a necessity. See the side index for other Arabesque bags.
