The Story of the GLAM GIRL Purse Pattern
To be entirely honest, I've had this design in my drafts for ages. I had edited and changed it so many times yet it somehow never felt right to me. Did I mention I'm pretty weird about drafting my patterns - I should probably just follow the market trends instead of figuring out what I personally want from a pattern, haha!
Back to the purse. Fast forward a lot of months and I get my hands on these gorgeous prints in pink, sweet mint, and rose gold sparkle. Rosegold and pink and mint, y'all! Yes please!
That was the evening I reworked my pattern file entirely (again!) because now I finally knew what I wanted from it! I printed out that final draft and sewed up the first one of what you see today: my new GLAM GIRL Purse pattern.
Oh, why exactly this name? Simple! The fabric collection that helped this pattern finally be released is - The Glam Girl collection! I find it so fitting, what about you? It was designed by Dani Mogstadt for Riley Blake Designs. Love it - take a look a the lighter part of the collection here, my favorites were the sparkle nudes and of course, sparkle florals.
*Of course I asked Riley Blake Designs first if I could use Glam Girl name for my pattern. Just in case you were wondering. 🙂
