Anyone who visits my FB page will know I have been madly getting 3 new designs ready for the Craft & Sewing Show....2 bags and 1 quilt! It was their first public outing and they all were all received well. SO over the next couple of days I will be giving some patterns away to celebrate!! 

We are starting with the Maggie Satchel!

This bag is named for my sister in law Margaret because it is practical but fun!

 It is a messenger style bag that is fully lined with an internal pocket. It features some great hardware, contrast piping detail and has an adjustable strap. It also has a nifty magnetic clasp that just snaps together when the flap is in place. It is a great mid sized bag that is practical and functional!! It measures 25cm (H) x 23cm (W) and is 8cm (D). I have made this style many times over and have found the front flap a great place to personalise the bag in someway. 

The pattern is presented in booklet form and includes detailed instructions and many diagrams to help you along the way. There is also pattern sheets with full size pattern pieces. The pattern has been drafted with a computerised drafting program so you be assured of 100% accuracy.

I have 3 patterns up for grabs. I am sure by now you know the drill leave a comment under this post for your chance to win a copy. Share the post (& let me know) and I will give you a double chance....Winners will be announced on Saturday evening the 3rd of November!

Hi Lynda my daughter loves bags and takes a bag of the same shape to "work" everyday.
I have shared you post as well.

I love Satchel bags, shame I'm not practical or fun, I might get a bag named after me.

I am just getting into bags and would love to make this one looks just right for my small computer I take in the caravan. I have shared this with my friends as well :)

I can't wait to make this bag! Seeing as I was a proof reader and already have the pattern, don't count me in the draw. I will share this post, though. :)

Cute bag. I bought fabric for a bag on a quilters bus trip a couple of weeks ago, I've been looking for a nice pattern, I think this could be it.

Ooh pretty, what a great size!!

Looks great. You can never have too many bags I say!! Always need to make another one.

looking good clever lady.

Maggie looks cute, as do the other two. I had a lovely bag made for me as the demo bag for a lesson at Patchwork last w/e...still recovering from 2nd shoulder so I just took photos and supplied fabric and my bag was the class demo one. I felt very blessed.
Hope I followed it enough to make it.
Looking forward to the next one.
