01 August

Bag Tour Graphic1

blog stops

I’m a little sad to say that today is the final day of our tour.  It’s been so much fun. It’s been great meeting some new friends and chatting with you through the comments. I hope you will let you me know how your C/R bag turns out!

I wanted to remind you that there are coupon codes for 25% off the pattern on the each blogger’s site that are good through August 2nd.  If you decide to get one, please look for and click my logo on their blog – it means they are an affiliate and will get a little of the money (fabric money perhaps?) –  they deserve it, so please purchase the pattern through them!

Today we will be meeting:

 Bethany Rapp with Sweet Bee Buzzings
Jonie Brooks with Knot Sew Normal
Lorena Rey of my way of… 

 First up is Bethany!  Bethany (‘Bee’) blogs over at Sweet Bee Buzzings and dips her toes in quite a few crafty pools–she sews mostly bags), quilts (occasionally), crochets (while watching TV shows you’d never think she’d be into), and sometimes even glues things (and has the hot glue blisters to prove it). Bee has quite a few tutorials for simple goodies, as well as lengthier sew-alongs for more involved projects. You can check out her version of the Convertible Reversible Bag here.mosaicf3f953d3c41a36a759d1f78d430eb714a1abb4b2

Next up is  Jonie with Knot Sew Normal is a crafting blog that covers a range of crafting. Everything from sewing, crocheting, baking, DIY, photography and much more. Welcome to a Knot Sew Normal World.  Jonie did a great job on here bag!


Then pop in on Lorena Rey from my way of…  She’s married and has two amazing boys. Her mother taught her to sew when she was a little girl, just basic things on an old sewing machine. She started to sew again when she started to stay at home with her children.  Three years ago she started to make bags and she loves it!Lorena was one of the people on my test team for this bag and is really fun person.

the pattern

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!
