There is light at the end of the tunnel! The kit bags are almost done and the patterns are in Illustrator and ready to go to the printer’s. Now, how do you like that? There are three kit packages in total in four different colorways. They are all 100% cotton; the printed fabrics are cotton twill by Waverly.
“Ginger” is a small clutch with a rounded frame suggested for the beginner, the Holly, a square-ish, Kelly-style frame bag is for the more adventurous and the Loyalist Messenger, which is aimed at more confident sewers. Each level presents new bag making techniques. Full instructions with color photos are included…like a bag-making workshop in every kit! I hope folks will enjoy them as much as I have.
