The Melanie Bag!!
New pattern needing a tester. I had a very good friend of mine ask if I would be interested in making this pattern, and of course I said YES. This is such a fun and go everywhere bag. I have been using mine since the day I finished it. The straps are long so it can lay up over one shoulder and lay on the other hip. I love that when I am running after my kids, my purse isn't falling off my shoulder (It's GREAT!)
This bag has a button and loop closure.
There's plenty of pockets inside lining both sides of the bag. Take everything with you, and still be able to find it all! Pockets for cell phones, pens, keys, lip stick, and more.
When it came to time for me to name the bag, I just had to name it after my good friend. So thanks again Melanie for the idea, and for letting me use your name!
I am needing 1 more person to test this pattern for me. If you would like to test this please leave me a comment below. If you would like an extra point in the drawing, please leave a comment on facebook or twitter and leave me the link to see it (I would appreciate your help in telling people about my shop).
Good Pattern for you beginners out there. Very few pattern pieces, and steps.
Here's the deal. You get the pattern for free. I only ask that you are able to sew the bag within a week of me emailing it to you, and give me any comments or suggestions you may have.
Contest will end at midnight, on Thursday, June 16th.
