Testing....testing....

Good Morning everyone....

Recently I got a chance to test a new pattern for a new designer. What fun to receive a pattern in the mail. A pattern no one else has... He He... AND I had to keep it a secret. No sneak peaks, no showing the girls I sew with, no taking it to quilt guild to show off..

NOW....Finally....I can show you...







I used up almost all my bitty scraps of Katies Jump Rose by Denyse Schmidt along with some onsaburg from a local discount store. This pattern has everything going for it. It's a great pattern to use up some little bits of scraps for that cool center...It has tons of pockets inside and a key fob... No more searching for those keys at the bottom of your bag...

Now the important part. Where can you get this pattern? Who is the designer?

Linda!!! This is only her second published pattern, but won't be her last. The instructions are clear enough for someone who has never made a bag...with photos and illustrations to help along the way. So head over to Linda's and get your pattern. I would love to see your final photo when (not if) you make one...

She just listed the pattern in her Etsy Shop...To purchase Linda's pattern for the bag, follow THIS LINK

Happy purse making...
