First off is the Kentucky Bag designed by Sarah Goodall from Numbskull Patterns. This is the third one I've made exactly the same. This was a custom order after the lady had seen the one that I had made for someone else.
Next up are some sanitary towel holders. I'd been asked by loads of people to make some of these but quite frankly didn't have the time and couldn't find a pattern. Then I came across a lady who saw my drawstring pouches and said she had the same exact fabric. Not unusual for many of you but it is for me becasue the fabrics I buy aren't found in many other countries. This particular one was from Turkey. I got back to her and asked her where she was from and would you believe she was from Turkey. It's a small world. Anyway I started following her FB page and noticed her sanitary towel holders. I asked if she had a pattern but she didn't but she did give me the measurements so I quickly made up a bunch of them.
You can see Yasemin's on her blog post HERE which she made in that fabric that's like mine. She has also used a different closure on hers. I'll have to try that one too and HERE is another one which is a trifold design with a cute bow embellishment. If you want to see all her designs in one place then this is her FB page. I just spotted a lovely duffel bag on there.
Now I want to show you a couple of bags that are really quick and easy to make. The Get Up And Go Bag by Jane at Projects by Jane. Jane's patterns are all so easy to follow and all her patterns are suited for beginners. I've made loads of these in the past.
I love this floral fabric becasue it has a velvety feel to it. You can find the pattern here on CRAFTSY or ETSY
And last but by no means least are some wallets designed by Anna of Noodlehead. This is a free tutorial which you can find HERE. The I have also made loads of in the past. These I made to keep on hand when I need to give a gift to someone. Sometimes when we go to visit friends it's customary to buy chocolates or cakes to take as a gift so these will come in handy and won't pack on the calories.
The tutorial is for a boys wallet but I made mine in girly fabrics so if you want them for a boy just make them the same and change the fabric.
See you tomorrow when I'll be showing you a pouch I tested.
