Eye Candy from June 2018


there were some splendid bags (all made with SKD patterns) posted on our FaceBook Business page or over on our new StudioKat Designs Group page on FaceBook! Not only are they beautifully made but they’re beautifully photographed too! In short, they were in fact “too fantastic not to SHARE”! So with that said….

Here’s the yummiest
“Eye Candy”
all posted in June 2018


This Sling Along is actually the 2nd that Diane Rhodes has created because she’s one of our testers! She enjoyed the process so much with her 1st bag that she couldn’t wait to make another!

Diane is known for her beautiful piecework but she certainly outdid herself this time! These jewel-tones are incredible!

Debbie Hataley said this was her very 1st Quattro, and she’s REALLY looking forward to using and showing off this lovely summer bag!







I loved Tracy Williams‘ version of our Go-Go Compact! You just can’t go wrong with Laurel Burch, right? She topped it off with an adorable zipper pull!

Joan Nasiaatka created this totally unique Bellagio Bag for a friend who is obviously a total Northwestern University fan!


And as a full-on lover of all things black & white, I’m crazy about Carol Beasley‘s Guardian! She’s already planning her 2nd!



Alice Nelson created an Aeropac travel wallet to coordinate with her brand new Go-Go Compact! Now she’s all set for a big trip!  🙂

And there’s some excellent fussy-cutting on display here on Dawn King‘s new Flaptastic Bag!  Great work Dawn!

And our favorite “bag dude” Don Distler is back with yet another amazing creation! Don used fabric from Spoonflower to add that special touch to this new Baggalista!

And I nearly flipped when I first saw Barbel Grahe‘s version of our Wrapsody Bag! The exterior embellishments are adorable and surprise interior is fabulous!

And finally, Casimira Kita used our bonus flap templates to create a kaleidoscope-like flap for her HipBag Hybrid! Well done!

So there you have it!

  1. I received my copy of the Sling Along on Saturday. I love it. Every time I get one of your patterns I mean to write and let you know that I love that you give us a “Bag Map” That is so useful!! Could I suggest, however, that the instruction sheets be printed on a more pastel color paper? The deeply saturated color of the paper offers little contrast with the black lettering. Very difficult to read with ageing eyes. Perhaps just offer PDFof those pages for those of us that no longer have young eyes. Please think about it.
    Thank you,
