Sewing Stylishly

The Summer 2012 issue of Sew Stylish magazine is about to hit newsstands, and when it does you can check out my "Quilted Convertible Bag" project and pattern to make yourself your new favorite summer accessory.  The project is a gorgeous chain strap shoulder bag that converts to a fold-over clutch, and it's made from quilted silk. 

Sew Stylish, Summer 2012
The example project uses a large scarf as the fabric, but the idea and design lends itself to all kinds of interesting variations.  I think it would be a great way to show off those special little tidbits and scraps you've had tucked away in your stash or scrap bin.  Pieced together for pattern-y awesomeness, quilted in a 1" grid to gild the lily and then perfectly detailed with shiny, blingy bits.  Yum.

For geekier palates, today's yum is another great canvas bag up for grabs at over at Etsy:

I've got a few more of these still to list, both plain and embellished.  And as always, if you'd like something in a different combination of materials or with (or without) a particular embellishment feel free to give me a holler.

great to see you're still putting mr. robot on things! i always get comments on my silver bag that features him.
