This is another Sunshine Wristlet  using navy cork  and cotton fabric.  It's a FREE pattern offered on CRAFTSY.

I 've added a shoulder strap to the bag as well as  6 card slots inside.  I left the back of the card slots open, so it's a slip in pocket which can hold a cell.  There's also a zip pocket, so lots of room for your essentials!

Instructions for the card slots and the slider are:

Clemantis Card Slot Pocket Hack.   by Debbie Hunker.  Debbie also has a tutorial on the Clematis, and shows how to attach the shoulder strap near the ends of the zipper, so the D rings aren't standing out on the side of the bag!

Free Sunshine Wristlet Pattern

Here's a great pattern called the Sunshine Wristlet.  I've only made one, but I love the design and hope to make more!! The lining fits perfectly, and the inside zipper pocket is just the right size.    The wristlet size is 10.25"W x  7.25"H.

 I also love the fact that it takes very little fabric, and it's a fairly easy sew!!  It's also free!

You can find the free pattern on Craftsy, so check it out HERE!!  It is sure to make a lovely Christmas gift!!

The Zipper Pouch: An Easy Quilting Project Tutorial..

This is a great tutorial by Jenny Doan of Missouri Quilts.  I found it quite different from the usual way of making a pouch, but I really like the look of the finished product!!

It's a slim-line wallet designed to be made with cork fabric, vinyl, or kraft-tex   It only takes a small amount, so it's sounding like quite the deal!!

Crossbody Clutch Purse - FREE PATTERN

Here's a cute clutch purse for a casual day or evening out, where you don't want to carry a large bag.  There's room enough for your cell in the front pocket, plus necessities in the other two pockets. It also has an adjustable shoulder strap.

Should you want to use this purse in your larger bag, just fold it over and close the two snaps.  Now you have a wallet!!  Can't get any better than that!

The instructions for this bag are for a confident beginner but the project is a intermediate level.  The pattern includes step by steps photos along with detailed instructions.

The FREE pattern can be found  HERE

Vanda, a young woman, who purchased the Rose Fabric Bag Tutorial sent me a picture of yet another bag she's made.  On this one she used different quilting patterns on the right and left side, front and back.  I love it!  I would never have thought to do this, but it looks great.  I really like the fabric she used as well.  She's really excited about sewing, and I'm so looking forward to seeing what she makes next.

You can find the reviews, pictures of other bags, and the tutorial  on CRAFTSY.

Thank you Vanda!
