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

So let’s kick this last contest off with this remarkable Flaptastic Bag created by Denise Camire of Nashua, NH. Denise said she used her favorite colors and made this bag for the summertime!

And I totally love the very graphic print that Diane Jones-Straus chose for her Odyssey Bag! When she stopped by my booth at Road to California to show me this gorgeous bag, it made my day!


This warm & “wooly”
Bellagio Bag
was created by Celia Ann Oliver of Colgrave, UK and you guessed it… she fashioned this bag in wool which strikes me as quite difficult given the fact that the combination of 1/4″ seams and the unraveling nature of wool seems an unlikely pair, but what a lovely result, no?

And I first spied this Everyday Attache on our FaceBook Group page and immediately recognized how ultra-special it was! This beauty was created by Karen Longnecker of LaMonte, MO.
This fussy-cut Everyday Attache also appeared first on our FaceBook Group page. Paula Faes of Santa Maria, CA is the creative mind behind this amazing bag and she says that while she spent a good deal of time on the fussy-cutting, she enjoyed the process!

And Gail Peters of Ely, MN says this is her very conservative version of our Flaptastic Bag! She uses it everyday and can fit a snack, her iPad and her matching Walkabout Wallet (in photo at right).

And this “Parisian-flavored” Guardian Bag was created and submitted by Delores Kaeser of Naples, FL who is also a member of our StudioKat Designs FaceBook Group page!

And last but not least, this Quattro was created by Ingrid Stulp of Guelph, Ontario, Canada who said though she’s had the pattern for some time she just couldn’t find the right fabric until she met her “best friend” & knew right away she had to make it in doggy fabric so they could go everywhere in style!

So…there you have it!
