A few months ago Lecien Fabrics sent me a bundle of next year's Flower Sugar and made me one of their fifteen "Flower Sugar World Ambassadors" (HERE)...
...and after carefully considering how to make best use of these pretty prints I'd decided (HERE) to update some of my old designs. Now believe me, choosing which designs to be updated is no simple feat, but a handful were eventually selected and on Saturday one of my most popular non-stitchery patterns of all time came to life in a Flower Sugar dress!
Originally the "Buttons & Bows" Bag was made using French inspired fabric, but this new one is a brighter and prettier version...
I was so chuffed when I finished it, which was just as well because it's a Christmas gift for one of my dear friends.
And because it's Christmas all around the world I thought I'd give it to you also.
Well, not the actual bag, but the pattern to make one for yourself.
After all, we've still got a few days left of...
...so why not make one for yourself and one for a friend?
You can download the free pattern HERE.
You know, if you're pushed for time and you have some sewing friends that you need a gift for, why not print up the pattern and make up a kit from your stash?
I'm sure they'd be very happy with a project all ready to make in the New Year!
bless you heaps
