Wallet pattern by AppleGreen Cottage
'This is the Enya Wallet from AppleGreen Cottage, and it's so cute! I used Essex Linen for the outside and then paired it with this beautiful floral print and some coordinating fabrics for the insides. It has a small pocket on the front under the flap, a zipper pocket on the back, and then a zipper pocket on the inside along with card pockets and a slip pocket. A removable cross-body strap lets you grab and go! Perfect for just the essentials!'  Cara Girven @EarlyBirdStitches.

Last month I was so happy to spot not one, but two new adorable TEYA crossbody bags sewn by @cositasbyleila from my pattern. What a cute choice of fabric, I still can't decide which one I like more! 



About CHRISTMAS GIFT BAG PATTERN

'The fabric gift bags were a success! Such a quick and clever pattern from @applegreencottage.'
Deidra, Quilty Obsession


'Easy to understand directions
I am no expert seamstress by any means. But not quite a beginner. I have never made a bag before but wanted to make some for all the kids in my lives for birthdays and Halloween bags, etc. so I printed the pattern pieces which are super easy to understand how to put together. The instructions include pictures and really are step by step. From cutting to pinning to sewing this pattern took me less than a half hour the first time through, and now it's much quicker. Very simple, super cute. A beginner could definitely make these bags and they are easy to modify if you want to make the bags bigger or whatever, it's a super simple process.'
Krisinthekitchen


'Neat idea for a gift bag.
I bought this especially for the technique of the box corners. I have used the pattern as instruction but also have made bags out of some mid-century pillow shams that I had in my stash. They worked out great also.'
Phyllis on Craftsy

'Easy and versatile
I have used this pattern many times. Easy pattern, sews up fast, and you can easily adjust it to make any size you like.'

I enjoyed making this nappy clutch, it was made for my daughter's teacher as her end of year Thankyou gift. I added a pouch on the outside as well for a phone or any added things plus a spring clip on the handle so it can attach to a 'D' ring on her nappy bag. Also made a matching change mat to go with it.

About KAIA MINI FABRIC BIN

'Just What I Needed
This is such a cute little bin for anything. When I saw this pattern I fell in love with it, I just HAD to own it. My daughter has already claimed one for herself so I have to make at least few more for her and myself as well. It'll be a perfect ORT "Jar" (Bin) for my CrossStitching. The pattern was so easy to read and make. Highly recommend.'

'Adorable bins, great for gifts



These little bins are adorable, and a great scrap buster.  The first one took about 45 mins, from printing to pressing.  I had to print it out, tape it together, and read through the directions, choose fabric, and sew it up.  The next ones went a lot faster.'

Rachelle, ThatsSewVenice


About TRIA COIN PURSE

'Beautiful photos in instructions
I just finished making one for my 5 yr old granddaughter to carry coins to school for various things (book fair, bake sale etc.). It was a fast and easy project. The little coin purse is fastened to the inside of her backpack to a small loop using a camp/belt clip. Being made of cotton, the coin purse is totally machine washable and dryable...'

'Triangle Purse for Kids!
This is a great idea and pattern for making little coin purses for kids! I've made loads so far!! I was looking for a coin purse I could make for boys and they certainly love this one. I put a lobster clip on the side so that it can clip on to school bags. I also adapted the top as I found the zip tabs a bit fiddly in such a small item. Overall definitely 5 stars for the idea and the pattern!'

About The BEST EARWARMER HEADBAND PATTERN

'Great fitting Earwarmer Headband
After studying the free Baby Earwarmer Headband design, I purchased the multi-sized pattern. It is a well fitting Earwarmer Headband. I've now made 8, one for myself as a tester then one for each of the grandchildren. The kids love them and often wear the band on cold winter mornings under their winter toque to ensure their ears are covered while waiting for their school busses. I dislike wearing anything on my head but this band is truly an ear-saver on the frosty mornings, it fully covers the ears and forehead.'

'Great item for the coast :)
Expect these will be in many holiday gift packages this year'
