Jenny Jo--if you are obsessed....

Postby KarenVA » January 19th, 2017, 7:24 am

You might like to join The Bag of the Month Club ($40.00 for six bag patterns)! https://www.bagomc.com/ Emmaline is one of the designers for this group. Last year our DD gave me a membership for the Jan-Jun bags for my birthday. She bought a membership for herself, too--so we could sew together--she in CA and me in VA!! She's a beginner and did a fantastic job on her bags!!! We had so much fun.

I've seen some really awesome bags come out of the club. They are always new patterns just for the participants until the program is over. I've been tempted............

Karen, I was just looking at Emmaline bag hardware today and saw the Bag-of-the-Month kits for sale. Thanks for the info; I didn't know how much it cost and whatnot. My next project is supposed to be a vest for myself, but I'm having a hard time finding the mojo to overcome all the fitting difficulties, and my sewing daydreams have been returning to bag-making. :wink:

Do you have any pictures to share of your completed bags?!?!

Jenny Jo, we need to meet and measure each other. And make those hard boards of our basic shapes for patterns! If only all the designers for the various pattern companies had to meet specified measurements. :roll:

These are great, Karen. One thing that amazes me in bagmaking is the newbie sewists. They do amazing work, very neat and accurate and they are not afraid to do more difficult techniques. I really applaud them. I also find they really look up to the more experienced sewists and are not afraid to ask and try recommendations. This is not what I see in Indie garment making blogs and patterns. I can also say that the patterns I have made and some I have just purchased and not made, seem really well done, again, not like Indie garment patterns. I love seeing new young sewists succeed and if it's in bagmaking, that's great. Just look at Karen's daughters bag and the techniques she executed so well. I'm impressed.
