But it’s time to reset for a brand new month!

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

This colorful & dramatic Baggalista was created by Kristy Loghry of Conifer, CO who says that this bag is just the right size for her and she LOVES all the pockets!Kristy got this gorgeous panel print at JoAnns.
poll740b poll740Phyllis Muscolino said that she made her own Bias tape for this wonderful Walkabout Wallet! I love the contrasting yellow with this print!
And Lynne Newberry of Longmont, CO used fabric from Peggy Toole‘s “Lumina” collection for her HipBag Hybrid. She says she made this versatile bag specifically for a vacation in Chicago!
poll738 poll738cpoll738bAnd this dramatic Baggalista was created by   Louise Landry of       Falls Church, VA. Louise said she wanted a bag that wouldn’t clash with her clothing so she chose basic black and this incredible print from Jinny Beyer’ Studio!
I met Raelee Russavage (of Lombard, IL) at AQS Quiltweek Paducah this past Spring where she bought our Walkabout Wallet which was brand new at the time. Raelee’s Mom was the recipient of this little beauty!
And Annette Macher told me that she totally LOVES her Triple Play bag! This particular bag (at left) is the one she made as a going-away present for a very dear friend! I’ll just bet she’s crazy about it, right?
And Lieve Ongenae of Oostende, Belgium told me that she was quite intimidated  when she first looked at her PortaPocketsPLUS pattern, but she took it one step at a time and here’s the result.  Lieve is giving these beauties to her sister (who is an organizing freak) as a gift, but I hope she make one for herself real soon!
