Carried Away!

I’m mega excited as two of my favourite handbag pattern designers Alicia Miller of Swoon patterns and Celine Allaert of Blue Calla Patterns have teamed up to form the Carried Away Pattern Collective and I got to test the first pattern!

The 6 month subscription costs $35 USD. You get a brand new never been published before pattern every month for a total of 6 patterns starting today and continuing on the 15th of every month until January 15th 2019.

First up in the pattern subscription is Swoon Patterns with Sierra the zip top handbag.

So without further ado here’s my Sierra! 




Sierra is approximately 13” long x 10” high x 6” deep. She has two pockets.. one zippered one inside and a handy slip pocket outside (I did mine in cork). The top is fastened with a long zipper for easy access and the side straps hold the bag in its shape. She needs minimal hardware as you can see in my bag above.. but you can totally bling Sierra out with feet, rivets, snap hooks or tassels. Instructions in the pattern also include a removeable crossbody strap which clips on to the d rings. I’ll be making one for my Sierra as soon as I decide if I want it in my Anna Maria Horner print or cork!
