So…Whenever you’re ready…Just scroll down to check them out!

This striking Baggalista was created by Georgia Segura of Pasadena, TX, who stopped by our booth at Quilt Festival in Houston, TX last Fall to show it off. If you look closely, Georgia also bedazzled the flap!

And this feline-themed Guardian was created by Sylvia Turner of the UK as a gift for an American friend.

Brenda Eggleston of Franklin, OH used our now-retired pattern, the Harmony Handbag to create this beautiful tote bag!
And since I love all things black & white,  I naturally was quite taken with Brenda Eggleston‘s Walkabout Wallet in harlequin. The polkadot trim was a perfect choice to go with this print, no? Brenda made this bag for her 19-year old granddaughter.

And this Carolina CarryAll (pattern now retired) looks crisp and feminine in white eyelet. Brenda Eggleston wisely added a “leatherette” base to this bag to aid in keeping it clean and crisp longer!
And this captivating HipBag Hybrid was created by Diane Rhodes of Monroeville, PA. Don’t you just love the coordinating accessory items she added ?
And last but not least is this spectacular Triple Play by Patti Foley of Ocala, FL. Can you believe that Patti combined two pillow panels, mattress ticking, chambray and a paisley cotton to create this bag? She says she can’t wait to show it off and I can’t blame her!  🙂

So…there you have it!

  1. While I love both Patti’s and Diane’s creations, for me, Diane edges just ahead because of the accessories.
    Diane, if you win, is there any chance that you would share how you made the key fob? Patti, the fabrics you chose lend a wonderful, light, beach feel to your bag. If Diane doesn’t win, I hope you do. Is “joy” embroidered or was bias tape/strip used?
