Good Morning!! =)
I am here to share a pattern that I often looked at and considered buying, but never quite talked myself into clicking the BUY button. The Grocery Bag pattern by Michelle's Patterns. Last week, someone on IG mentioned they had two of these bags cut out and in their ufo pile. They were finally going got get theirs done. When I read that, I revisited Michelle's Patterns Etsy shop and committed by clicking the BUY button. For two days I cut and sewed 10...Yes, 10 of these bags. They are awesome bags!! I will be giving them away as gifts, as well as using them around my house. The pattern is clear, easy and so fun! They go together like a dream. I had zero problems getting them to go together and look nice. Every one of them turned out perfectly. Love it when that happens!! They are reversible, too, so twice the fun and they are a great way to use up stash that has been sitting around for far too long. The patten includes instructions for three sizes, S, M, L. The ones pictured are medium, which is my favorite size, but if you are going to use them to get groceries, the large would be the way to go. It will hold a lot! She also gives you permission to make them and sell them in your own shop, just make sure you give the pattern credit to her. Michelle has no idea I am blogging about her pattern today, so, in other words, my review is all on my own and I am not receiving anything for it. =)
When I wasn't sewing bags, I made up this baby quilt for a new baby girl born in our church. I love her name!! It's not one we hear very often these days. =)
Her mom dresses up her older sisters in fun frilly dresses, so this fabric was meant to be used for their new baby sister's quilt.
It will be wrapped up in a new grocery bag, of course. =)
Have a happy Sunday!!
