Heather Bailey's, "Marlo Bloom" handbag like crazy. There are not enough great things to say about this pattern. The directions are very clear and concise, followed up with great illustrations. Things that could have been a challenge are very clearly explained, making this pattern a delight to sew. I even love the package and the way you can open and close it. I have made three of these bags so far and have another in the works.
I have gotten so many compliments on this bag, that I have decided to teach a class on this pattern at Bernina Sewing Center here in Kansas City. If you are so inclined, please sign up for it. The class is scheduled for Saturday, October 24 from 1-4pm. Please call Bernina to register.

I started a blog a few years back to indulge in a community of crafters and makers. I inevitably gave it up, as I was unimpressed with my ability to take pictures well enough to convey my story. But alas, I try again. I hope to have some pretty photos to accompany my words. My last blog was entitled "aunt jaime", not exactly saying much other than I am an aunt. I have been trying to think of a name for this new blog and my handmade goods, and finally settled on "patchwork architect". I love to quilt and I am an interior architect, so there it is folks. I hope you like it.
