Reisende Bag - Test Pattern

Hello Everyone,

I completed another beautiful pattern for Sara at Sew Sweetness. This bag is called the Reisende Bag and I love how it came out. This bag is available in 3 different sizes, from purse sized up to a large bag perfect for a long weekend. A beautiful buckle and purse hardware gives your bag that smart and sophisticated look. There is also optional piping that gives your bag that finished look.

The large size that I chose finished measurements are  19" long x 12" tall x 5" deep. You can store so much inside your bag and I love all the other added details that make this bag attractive. There are zippered pockets inside, a zipper closure and optional purse feet.

I already have my fabric picked out for my next bag (medium size), so stay tuned.

I fell in love with the bright and vibrant beach cabanas for summer. The fabric, zippers and thread are from Joann. The buckles and loops are from Strapworks.

As always, I love all the detail and thought that Sara puts into all of her bags. Her instructions are and pictures always easy to follow. If you ever have a question, she is always available to assist you.

If you would like to purchase this pdf pattern, hardware and notions, please stop by Sara's pattern shop. The pattern is available in her shop after June 3, 2016.

I am linking up with these parties, Remodelaholic, More the Merrier and TCB.

Have a wonderful day!!

Our fur baby Patch

Hello Everyone,

June 1, 1996 - June 21, 2010

It's been six years since we lost our fur baby cat Patch and it still feels like yesterday. We look at his pictures everyday and miss him terribly. We know he is in a better place, but, our hearts are still ache. He was such a sweet boy and on the day we lost him I shared this post.

Patch would always lay under the Christmas tree and look up at the lights.

Before his second eye surgery.

Today would have been Patch's 20th birthday. He loved when we would sing him "Happy Birthday". We so loved our one-eyed wonder cat.

He loved his cozy bed and his little babies.

Patch and his best friend Holly.
We love and miss you so very much!! You will always be with us in our hearts and memories.

"Rainbow Bridge"
