NEW ... Cross Body Handbag ... UPDATE

Another Sew Expo has come and gone!  Thank you to everyone that took the time to stop by the booth.  It was lovely to meet all of you. 

To everyone that left a comment (and their email), we have finally tied up all the "business" ends to the pattern and are emailing them out to you as I type.

Enjoy!!



"The 3 Harlow Skirt Formulas"



We haven't been posting as much as we'd like too (sooo sorry about that), but to make it up to you, we have a FREE pattern give away.

That's right ... I said FREE!!    

Drumroll please ............. introducing "The Cross Body Handbag"

Do you love that croc embossed pleather?  Come on down to the Showplex booth (1307-1309-1311) and see it for yourself.

I always go through the whole expo and then decide what I want to take home, this bag was my most favorite project and I can't wait to get started and have an awesome bag. My favorite at the sewing expo this year, thanks. I purchased enough stuff to make 2 of those bags and I bought a pattern for another bag. I am excited to see what else paradiso designs has. : )

Looks like the handbags are strong and substantial. They'd have to be to withstand the wear and "abuse" I typically give handbags!

Love the cute skirt! I make children's clothes for charity, working on a Haiti project right now. Those would be awesome!

I had a great time chatting with you at the expo but then misplaced your card about leaving the comment! Finally uncovered it in my very tidy sewing room. I really like the size of the cross body bag, just right for carrying the necessary stuff. Can't wait to get started.
