Bag Tour Graphic1

Welcome to Day 2 of the Convertible/Reversible Bag tour!

blog stops

Today I’m feature 2 more talented blogger/sewists who took on the Convertible/Reversible bag and triumphed!  Today we’ll visit:

  Lynn Potts of PottsCrafty 
Marilyn Brandt from Shades of Bold
(scroll down to see the line-up for the rest of the week)

 First up today is Lynn Potts of PottsCrafty !  Lynn lives and works in Cambridgeshire, England. She is a mum of two lively boys, and has a very un-crafty day job as a software tester. In her ‘spare’ time (that being the time remaining at the end of the day after small children are in bed and in which she has to prioritise – sewing or household chores?) she loves to make dresses and bags which she sells via her website  Lynn was also on the Convertible/Reversible Bag test team and is a really lovely person!

Next we have Marilyn Brandt from Shades of Bold   After leaving her job in 2012, Marilyn rediscovered her passion for sewing and thinks there is nothing better than turning fabric into great handbags!  Her blog, shades of BOLD, shares all things handmade but mostly those addictive handbags!  Marilyn’s bag turned out so cute!  While you are on her blog, take a moment and check out all her bags – this lady has some skills!

The Convertible/Reversible Bag!

Trish's galleyr collage

This unassuming little bag hides a secret… she can convert and reverse into 4 different bags in 2 completely separate colorways and styles!  The pattern includes instructions for laminated cottons as well as regular fabric.  Don’t you think it would make a great gift?  And, it’s perfect for travel, 4 bags in 1 means more room in your luggage for shoes!   It’s the wackiest design I’ve come up with yet and I just love it -I hope you do too!
