A Patriotic Pattern Release!

What was once considered a distant dream is quickly becoming a very enjoyable reality!  I've been busy writing, editing and brainstorming creative patterns and have just released my latest...a needle felted star over a whimsical flag on this cute (and easy to sew) lined tote bag!

This idea began as a commissioned project, and swiftly became one of my daughter's favorite pieces, so I created one for her too.  These are so easy to make up; I could see creating a different embellished bag for just about any occasion!  And because the outer shell is made in wool felt, this project is very affordable and has a minimal supply list to complete.  It combines easy sewing construction with one of my favorite creative expressions...needle felting!

Never being one to stay only in one artistic venue, I have another epattern about ready to release (a very quick and simple sewing project), and several more in the works, so I hope you'll check back for more inspiration soon!


  1. Beautiful! I love needle felting, but I am just a novice - a real novice. Maybe not even that good. (Giggle)

    Happy Weekend.


  2. Cute bag! Thanks so much for dropping by my blog. Always love to hear from my fellow Washingtonians! After we left La Conner last night and pulling out of Conway, I saw that arrow pointing to Stanwood and thought "I need to visit that town one day!" LOL! I always love exploring new places! Love your creations! ~~Annie
