It's here! My new PDF pattern is available on etsy and craftsy as a downloadable PDF file! This sample bag was made using Jenean Morrison's new fabric line Lovelorn. I am so in love with this collection!
The Midtown was inspired by working in Memphis Midtown at Sew Memphis, and just getting to hang out and shop. My little man is now potty trained, and after spending what feels like an eternity carrying large bags filled with diapers and pull ups and extra clothes and enough snacks to be stranded in Death Valley and not starve or dehydrate, I find myself in a position to just carry what I need, my wallet, my phone, sunglasses and a few small items. I also like to have my hands free, since little man is still 3 and sometimes likes to be chased! So here is my life right now. It's cute, it's hip, its a nice sized crossbody with a zippered pocket front and an open pocket in the back.
The inside boasts pockets along the back side and the two zippers are super easy to install!
It is with a heavy heart I give up my "baby bag" days, knowing that he is our last baby. This style of bag is one I would have loved in my 20s, and have found a new appreciation for it in my 40s!
The above sample actually was for Jenean, it was just sew pretty I had to use it for all the pictures in the pattern! I can't wait to see what others do with this pattern! I have already made one for myself, of course I used my stash of Star Trek fabric.
So if you see this bag in midtown Memphis, stop and say hi!
