Purse a palooza check it out

If you aren't sure about a purse pattern, wondering if it is too hard, ahem,  if the instructions are poorly written? Then you may want to check out  Purse a Palooza where sewing peeps are tyring out all the great bag patterns out there and letting you know how they work , or don't. Also lots and lots of giveaways so why not check it out.

Speaking of bags, I finally made my first 241 bag I think it looks pretty good and will be making some more !
It is made  out of a plum linen with Kokka parrot print for accent on the pockets. I'd like to try this with some heavier fabrics I have that have been waiting for just the right project .

Giveaway week again !

Time flies it is giveaway time again over at lots and lots and lots of things on offer, and not just supplies, some of it is ready made things you might like for the not so crafty. For the crafty mined ones free stuff to make stuff with is always a blessing!

On that note I have my first commission , I made a messenger bag as a birthday present for one of my daughter's friends and her big sister loves it sooo much her Mom has asked me to make another! Most of all I'm glad the gift is liked.
This is the bag ( made up by me no pattern involved), perhaps I put together a tutorial for it ! : )
