Eye Candy for January 2019


what better way to kick off the New Year than with some totally AWESOME bags, ALL of which were created using our patterns and either shared on our FaceBook Group page , mailed to us directly or posted on Instagram! This month’s bags are not only beautifully made but they’re also beautifully photographed too! In short, they were in fact “too fantastic not to SHARE”!
So with that said….

Here’s my favorite “Eye Candy” for the month of
January 2019!

So our favorite sewing dude, Don Distler is back & this time he has a GORGEOUS Quattro to show for it!

This classy Odyssey Bag was created by Susan McPartland and didn’t she do a fantastic job with the fussy-cutting? It looks SO professional!  🙂

And Lydia Stone is the very first person to send us Packlets pictures! She said that she’s actually created ALL of these cuties for Christmas gifts and is proud to say that she’s made bags from all three of our 2018 pattern releases so far this year!


This is Sue Roesner‘s 1st Sling Along. I really love the rich look of this bag & her impeccable floral applique is just perfect. Sue added that the Sling Along is her favorite SKD pattern so far!  Thanks Sue!

Don Distler created this Sling Along for a young marine biologist stationed in the Bering Sea! What an appropriate exterior, right? I’m thinking this young lady must’ve been THRILLED with her bag!

Gayla Martell said that she used up “every last crumb”  of this gorgeous fabric in the process of constructing this amazing Flaptastic Bag! Job well done Gayla!


And this eye-popping Sling Along was created by Kathleen Schrank! I absolutely LOVE the brave combination of print & color in this bag! Well done Kathleen!

Here’s the Guardian that Gayla Martell created. She made an ideal choice of a focal print for her bag and executed it perfectly!

And Candace Docs sent me this picture of her Carolina CarryAll thru the email and it made my day!(The Carolina CarryAll is one of our retired patterns and I’m afraid all of our copies are gone!)  🙁
And finally we have Don Distler‘s latest Sling Along creation! This time Don combined denim and pleather as his exterior fabrications and he also embroidered the front pouch pocket area for a terrific bag for a male customer!

So there you have it!

These are the bags I thought best qualified as “Eye Candy” for the month of January 2019.
