Today’s stops are:

 Amy Macdonald of Friends Stitched Together
Judith Clauss of  Judith Stitches and More 
Kathy Hennessey from Handmade Dress Haven

Say hello to Amy Macdonald!  Amy blogs with her best friend over at FriendsStitchedTogether. They recently started a sewing series called CraftingCon, which is a monthly sewing contest based on all things geeky and nerdy! She sews mainly for her two boys, although sometimes she sneaks in something girly for her nieces. Her version of the of the Convertible/Reversible Bag features embroidery and painted flowers. Awesome!

Next we have Judith Clauss of  Judith Stitches and More.  Judith writes her blog to share sewing projects, ideas, tips and more. She has been sewing for more than 40 years and has over the last few years has become a passionate bag-maker. In addition to sewing bags, she enjoys doing machine embroidery. She primarily sews gifts for friends and family and loves to test-sew bags for designers. She recently tested two different bags for me and is an awesome lady with wicked sewing skills!

Last up for today is Kathy Hennessey of Handmade Dress Haven.  Kathy loves sewing for her children and they appreciate her work! She finds great satisfaction in creating things from fabric and enjoys spending time with the lovely colors and prints. She chooses fabrics that bring her pleasure and considers sewing an extension of her love for flowers, gardening and all things with color.  Kathy really went the extra mile to make this bag and I can’t wait to see it! Thanks, Kathy!

In case you missed it, this is the bag we are touring the blog-o-sphere to see!
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!
