This year I took part in the Bag of the Month Club although I'm sorry to say I only got one of the 6 bags done. Next year it's on again with 6 fabulous designers designing a bag for each month starting in January.
I copied the bit below from Christine's blog because I'm short of time and just wanted to quickly pop in and let you know about the offer so when you get to June and it says (that's ME) it's not actually me it's Christine LOLLL
These are the designers taking part.
January - Samantha from Sewing Patterns with Mrs. H.
is a Welsh pattern designer with a group of pretty yet practical bags
in her pattern library. I heard about January's bag design and I was
very excited, as it's a piece of purse hardware that I have never used
before, but always wanted to. Look out for January's bag, as it's going
to be amazing!
February - Sara of Sew Sweetness.
Sara likes bags with a lot of pretty details, and since we had a lot of
requests last time for smaller bags, she is going to see what she can
come up with! Sara has lots of fun, modern bag patterns in her pattern shop here.
March - Anna from Noodlehead
has many versatile free tutorials and paid patterns on her site, many
of which are wildly popular with quilters! Anna's first book is due out
in February, called Handmade Style: 24 Must-Have Basics to Stitch, Use, and Wear.
April - Janelle of Emmaline Bags.
Janelle has a thriving pattern business, where she also sells all the
hardware, handles, and interfacing needed to make the bag patterns in
her shop. Janelle's first book is coming out in 2015.
May - Betz White is a bag designer and textile artist, and she is the author of three books, most recently Present Perfect: 25 Gifts to Sew and Bestow. You can find her patterns available on-line in her pattern shop, as well as her video classes on Creative Bug and Craftsy.
June - Christine of Chris W. Designs (that's ME!) I have yet to decide just what I am designing for June ....mysteries are such FUN, don't you think? LOL
