Newsletter for

December, 2012

Welcome to Newsletter for December, 2012!

It's the time of year to get in gear if you are making Christmas gifts! This month we have compiled a list of bag and accessory patterns that would make great ideas to sew for those special people in your life!

To start off, we recommend the Mini Organizer Pattern by Annie Unrein. This would make a great gift for that super organized person in your life because it's not your usual coupon holder! This pattern has lots of great features such as side release buckles that let you fasten this bag to your grocery cart - no more wondering where in the world you put your coupon holder down! There is a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap, a roomy interior (up to 500 coupons!), two outside pockets (one zippered), and places for credit cards, an ID, and business cards.

I am really thinking about organization for this month and another pattern we just received is also by Annie. This pattern is the" Got Your Back Backpack Purse" and, in addition to keeping you organized, also keeps your hands free to grab those wandering children:)

Of course we have tons of bag patterns and bag accessory patterns to choose from (now over 1,700!) but I have one more recommendation that will make up fast and all your girlfriends, nieces, daughters, etc. will love it- The Anna Bag Pattern by Abbey Lane Quilts! This is a cute but easy to make hobo bag with a decorative band that matches the double handles!
