Other News:

Have you checked out the Handmade Couture series over on the Emmaline Bags blog? In this series we take designer bags (that have a designer price tag to boot) and show you how to recreate the look using existing sewing patterns, materials and emmaline hardware to get the same luxe look at a fraction of the cost. This week, we show you how to recreate this Kate Spade bag using the Blue Calla Boronia Bowler Bag

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.

Want to get a jump start on some back to school sewing? Come join me as I do a sewalong for the Emmaline Bags Luxie Lunch bag, here on this blog starting July 24th. As a bonus, those sewing along with us on and sharing their makes will be entered to win one of 3 Emmaline Bags gift cards. Click here for the schedule and more info.

Have you seen the Sew Sweetness Sewcial Sundays? Each Sunday, she does a live video to give you the lowdown on the latest sewing tools, fabric releases and some tips! This week she shows you how to sew an adjustable strap.

Curious about using strap anchors in your bags? These are one of my favorite pieces of hardware, and they are so much quicker (and professional) than finicky strap tabs. Check out the tutorial for how to add the top edge style to your next bag.

If you are a blogger, a shop or a designer I’d love to include your sales, pattern releases and special projects. Email me at with your info and upcoming or current sales, patterns and projects to be included in upcoming posts.
