Newsletter for

October, 2012

Welcome to Newsletter for October, 2012!

It's starting to be gift sewing season (this is my own take on the month of October)! We have gotten in lots of new patterns and I am "making my list and checking it twice" to narrow down what I want to make!

If you know someone who does weekend trips, why not think about making them a Bohemian Carpet Bag by Sew Liberated?

Bohemian Carpet Bag Pattern by Sew Liberated

The Bohemian Carpet Bag Pattern by Sew Liberated is a roomy bag pattern with a large main compartment - perfect for that weekend get away! In addition, there are instructions for an exterior zippered phone pocket. This pattern uses a tubular purse frame and is easy to make with a finished size of 16 1/2"W x 16"H x 6 3/4"D. Can you just image this bag pattern in a stunning home decor fabric?
