An adorable Mini-Screen Tote Bag made by Kimberley Gavrus

Kimberley sent me pictures of her version of my

Mini-Screen Tote Bag Pattern.

It is just adorable Kimberley!

This is what she had to say:

“Hi Michelle, I recently purchased your pattern instructions for your cute little tote. I made this tote featuring Whimsical Roses Monograms by Santi from Hatched in Africa embroidery designs.  I want to compliment you on your instructions…they are really nice…love all the pics. Also, I really liked working with the type of screening you suggested. I have never heard of it before, and a few Walmart employees had not either….LOL My husband and I wondered around the store until he spotted it in the hardware isle. This is one tote, you are seeing both sides. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use the K or the G (for my last name)….so I decided to use both.  Thanks for creating this little cutie. Kimberley Gavrus.”

Kimberley, THANK YOU for sharing your adorable creation!

You did a fantastic job!

If you have made a project using one of my patterns, I would LOVE to see it and share it on my blog.

Please send me a picture or two to my email SewMichelle@outlook.com.

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.

My new addiction……

I saw a post on Happy Zombie and Bee in my Bonnet about these adorable drawstring lunch bags and how they were addicting to make and thought I needed to  see for myself.  Well…..I have to agree!  I LOVE making these adorable bags and I can’t stop thinking about all the possibilities.  The pattern is super easy (you can find it here at Pink Penguin.com)and a great way to use up some fabric stash.  Here are just a few I have made so far.  I don’t know if I would use them as lunch bags but they do make precious gift bags – kind a 2-fer present :>)  I am working on enlarging the pattern so I can use it to hold more stuff of course!  I will let you know as soon as I come up with “working” dimensions. 

Christmas Projects 2011
