In the Spring issue of Stitch Magazine I found the wonderful bag pattern. Designed by Rebeka Lambert of Artsy-Craftsy Babe and Etsy. I have used Beki's patterns before and sold quite a few of the pleated shoulder bags. That said, knew I could make this bag. Her patterns are to the point with lots of great photos.
Off I went....I changed the type of applique to the turn and fuse method and added a zipper on the top rather than the fold-over snap flap.
Oh...also a zip pocket on the inside and a beaded zipper pull on top.
I wanted to list my new baby in my etsy shop , but could find no license offer or permission to make and sell this bag. Emailed Beki...and she said go ahead. Several things are important here: first, always ask permission to use anything that someone else made (photos, items from patterns you did not create, etc.) This is understood. Second, definitely give credit. Always.
