Bag of the Month 2015

Why yes, I did sign up for the bag of the month again this year!!  The January Bag Pattern came out on New Years Day, I promptly cut it out then had to run to Hancock Fabrics for some more vinyl and yesterday I sewed this beauty and this morning put the frame into it!  I must say thank you Samantha for an awesome pattern that yet taught me something new, I had never done a frame bag so this was a first and I might add it won't be my last!!  Go check out Samantha's Blog she has lots of patterns for sale!  At Home with Mrs. H.

It is not too late to sign up for the Bag of the month go right on over to Sara's blog Sew Sweetness and check it out!  Remember I didn't join till the end of April early May last year and I completed all six bags and even won the prize for the March Bag which was also a Bag of Samantha's the Convertible Bag!

So here it is my Companion Carpet Bag....

Happy New Year to all of you!  Nancy


  1. Wow you were super fast Nancy! I just got the pattern yesterday, so I haven't even started to look at my fabrics yet. I don't have that kind of frame either, so I will have to see where to get one or come up with a different closure for my bag. Love how yours came out.

    1. Thank you Daryl! There is a US supplier on Etsy, not sure of the name. I ordered my first frames from Etsy also but they came from Hong Kong and took over 2 weeks. The pattern was pretty easy although I got a little rattled with the frame ..... Nancy
