As Christmas is coming fast, I have found a wonderfull and easy pattern for a great bag, very professionally made (I mean all the details of the bag are perfects and the pattern is very well illustrated and clear). So I have made 3 for gifts plus 1 for me :-) The design is also perfect for a man bag and I have made one for my husband ( I do not put this picture now as I do not want him to spy before Xmas!).
This bag pattern named "Two Zip Hipster" is designed by Erin Erickson and you can buy it here and visit her blog there.
I have used one of my pattern, the little gnome, for the front of my bag. This is the great thing with this pattern: you can mix several prints in one bag and also use nice paper pieced block or appliqué for the front and this way customize your bag easily. My gnome pattern is available here or there.
You still have time to sew several before Christmas, few hours are enough to make one! (I have spent approx. 2 evenings on each one).
I hope you will enjoy!
