For all of you that are scrambling to get those last minute gifts done (I can TOTALLY relate)and need quick but beautiful designs, you should check out Sew Inspired by Bonnie.  She has a new set out call Painted Poinsettias and it is gorgeous!  Here are some pics of her new set on a tree skirt she created.  While it might be too late to make a tree skirt like this, unless you don’t sleep and only sew from now until Christmas, you could embroider the designs on towels or pillowcases for a quick gift.   And for the icing on the cake……she is having a Buy One Get One Free Sale starting today.

And the winner is……

 

Congratulations go out to Barbara Kish Murray from Roselle, IL!!  She won the Why Knot Tote Bag sample made out of Moda’s Little Black Dress fabric line.   I heard from Barbara this morning and she is so excited she’s “doing the happy dance”.   Too funny Barbara!

Thank you all so very much for the sweet comments you left.   Reading them makes me want to make a sample and send to EACH of YOU!  Stay tuned for more contests – this was too much fun.  

  

 

Back by popular demand

Due to the overwhelming response the Why Knot Tote Bag has received, I have decided to run the special of $5.00  for the pattern until Sunday night at midnight.  At that time, it will go up to the normal price of $8.00.  Thank you all so very much for your support.  I am thrilled you guys like the pattern.  Makes all my long hours and late nights of working on it worthwhile.  

If you haven’t purchased your Why Knot Tote Bag pattern yet, please click HERE to take you to my Etsy store to get it while it is at this reduced price.  

 

And….Why Knot?

I have been hard at work on my latest tote bag pattern, Why Knot?

This adorable bag measures  16 ½” wide x 12 ½” tall, 6” deep, making it the perfect size to carry all your goodies.  My construction technique makes it sturdy (no slouchy bags for me) and stylish with its unique shape.

I have taken away the scare of zippers by not including any on this pattern.  But we still need the pocket in our bag, right?  Well, I added a pleated pocket to the inside instead.

Plus, two additional pleated pockets on the outside for easy access storage to hold your cell phone and keys.  

Did you also notice the expandable sides with the magnetic snaps?

As always, my pattern includes step by step instructions with lots of pictures to guide you in making your own Why Knot Tote Bag.  I have also included my Sewnopsis with this pattern that will serve as your cheat sheet and save you lots of time by not having to run to and from the computer to see what step is next.  I have been told by customers that this is one of their favorite part of my patterns.  

If you would like to purchase my Why Knot? Tote Bag, please click HERE to visit my Etsy store.  

For the first 10 customers, this pattern will be $5.00.  After those ten have sold, the pattern will return to its normal price of $8.00.

 

Introducing The Mini-Screen PDF Pattern

Below are some samples of my newest pattern, The Mini-Screen.   The PDF pattern is loaded with over 65 pictures to guide you step by step in making your own adorable Mini-Screen tote.  The PDF also includes a Sewnopsis.  What is a Sewnopsis?  It is a single sheet reference guide that has the most important steps of the pattern listed along with mini pictures.  It is like  a cheat sheet to keep near your sewing machine.  Genius right?  I designed this sheet to save time by not having to run to and from the computer to see what step is next.   It also includes a supply list making it super handy to take with you to the fabric store.   To purchase my pattern click here and it will open a new tab to my Etsy Store.  

This versatile tote is petite but still roomy enough to hold all your necessities and look adorable while doing it!  

What girly girl wouldn’t want to carry the turquoise Mini-Screen pictured below?

You can personalize the bag with monogramming if you choose.

It could also function as a lunch tote.

I am constantly working on new patterns and hope to have more available in the next few weeks.  

 Thanks for your support and I hope I have inspired you to want to go and sew something :>)

My Etsy Store ~ SewMichelle Too

I DID IT!  I FINALLY DID IT!  I opened my Etsy store as of today ~ YIPPEEE!!!  This has definitely been a labor of love for me!  I had no idea opening an Etsy store would be so much work!!  I am thrilled to announce it is finally up and going.  The long awaited Screen It Up tote bag is my very first pattern for sale.  Yes, there is only ONE pattern up for now but there will be plenty more to follow.

 So please go take a look and of course buy my pattern :>))

If you don’t want to make the tote bag with embroidery~ no problem.  Here is a picture without it and it is just as adorable!  With all the cute fabrics out there, the possibilities are limitless on what theme or color scheme you can use to create this fabulous bag.

Sewing Machine Caddy Posted ~ FINALLY!

I know I promised I would get the sewing machine caddy out quicker than this but this is my busy season at my “real job” and unfortunately that has to come before sewing – no fun right?  Anyhow – its here now under Tutorials.   I even broke down when writing this tutorial and made one for myself…hope you all will do the same.

The adorable sewing bird is a new set from Loralie called Sew Florida and the dress form fabric is hers too but its from many years ago and is probably out of production.
