For all of our U.K. Bagineers and worldly adventurers, there are still a few spots open for the Bag Retreat brought to you by Sewing Patterns by Mrs. H. Read all about this dreamy getaway and get your tickets here.

Sew Sweetness has launched the first of her videos!  Now, you have the option of purchasing a full video tutorial along with several of her most popular patterns. This is great for the beginner bagineer or for those who like more in depth walk through on the process of making bags. You can now try one of these videos and patterns out for FREE with this easy leather hobo bag pattern and instructional video.
