    Pardon me for sounding crabby, but the teaser for this article says you're GIVING AWAY patterns. What you are really doing is offering us a chance to win patterns. There's a difference. Could we have a little more truth in advertising?

    I love the bags that I make myself, with extra care to durability. Fabric choice is important, with suitability in mind for the intended use of the bag. I like "found objects" for creative elements and handles. Whether made of hand embroidered silk for evening, or of terry for the beach, my bags go everywhere with me!

  83. User avater Degy July 8th

    Bought your newest magazine about Handbags a few days ago. I was so thoroughly impressed that I started to make notes on which fabrics I have to make them, as well as some of the leather that I have harvested from other purses that have 'died a painful death', like a handle would break. To me, my purses or bags are my friends--they have to hold a lot, glasses, keys, meds, iPad, phone etc.
    Sewing is something I love to do, cause I get to create something beautiful, or useful--even putting a new zipper into one of my husbands jackets. Thank you ever so much for this opportunity.

  84. andie_o July 8th

    A girl can never have too many bags, and these are a perfect addition to any collection...

    Can't wait to see the special Threads edition about making bags. I really enjoy doing just that!
