New Style in the Shop

I've added these lovely new bags to my shop. The first two have extra long straps that make them perfect for wearing as a cross body style bag. The last two are wristlet styles, making them a great accessory or to give some added organization to a large bag.
These bags are made using a pattern from Palm Harbor Designs called a Charming Little Purse - O - Nality*. I really love this pattern. The directions are easy to follow and clear. I have made two small modifications, however. I have changed up the pocket configuration and enlarged the pattern by about one inch......just to meet my own personal preferences.

Well, I am off to finish sewing a quilt top for our new baby girl. I only have 46 more days until she is due to arrive. Yikes!

* I met the designer for Palm Harbor Patterns at Houston Quilt Market. We chatted about how much I loved this pattern and I told her that I always get requests to make them for sale. She graciously gave me permission to make a very limited number of bags using this pattern for sale in my shop and at craft shows.
