Today I’;m ecstatic to be launching a new sewing pattern. The Alice Bag Sewing Pattern! It’;s something that I’;ve been working on for several months now and hope that you guys love it as much as I do!

Before we start talking about the Alice Bag pattern, I’;m so happy to share with you the project for week #2 of the Wonderland Two Blog Tour!

This week, Shari from Doohikey Designs is showing us how she made this adorable pillow! I love how she fussy cut the bunny for the center of the pillow and all of the amazing details that she created with embroidery.

Shari is a fellow Riley Blake Fabrics Designer and was my “;booth mate”; at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City last May! ?She’;s amazingly talented and even nicer in real life than you can imagine!

Now let’;s chat about the Alice Bag!! It all started because last Fall we made plans to attend Disney World’;s Mickey’;s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I had decided (and remarkably everyone agreed) to go as characters from Alice in Wonderland. You can see all of our costumes by CLICKING HERE. ?

My daughter wanted to go as the white rabbitpersonalized teacher signs, and what does the white rabbit carry? A clock! Well the thought of carrying a giant clock around Disney all night with her didn’;t seem like quite a great idea, so I decided to make her a purse instead!

I used an image from my Wonderland Two fabric line for the front of the bag, and printed it at home with printable fabric. To jazz it up a bit I added some iron on vinyl to the front. ?Also since I can’;t ever leave well enough alone, I added bunny ears for a bit of extra whimsy.

After I finished that bag, I got lots of other ideas for similar bags and the Alice Bag was born! I’;ve spent the last few months perfecting the pattern and adding new options. Every time I would think I was done with it I’;d add another element or view.

So let me tell you about the bag!

The Alice Bag Handbag Sewing Pattern is a whimsical and versatile purse sewing pattern that can be made in two different sizes with 4 different handle styles.

You can add even more whimsy to the bag with the optional addition of rabbit ears! (without rabbit ears, it makes a pretty dreamy cosmetic bag)

This versatile pattern features:

-Quilted or Non Quilted Exterior.

-Option to create the Bunny Face or Clock Face bag front with either hand embroidery or by printing the image on printable fabric with the included patterns and printables!

-Options for Cross Body Straps; Small Purse Handles; Chain Straps; or detachable Wristlet Strap

-Optional Bunny Ears

-The bag is fully lined.

-Small Bag is approx. 7″; in diameter by 2 1/2″; deep

-Large Bag is approx. 10″; in diameter by 2 1/2″; deep

-Instructions for two lengths of cross body straps included; one suitable for children and one suitable for adults.

-The pattern includes 15 pages of instructions (with full color photos) and printable full size pattern pieces!

The pattern is in PDF format (print format coming in June) AVAILABLE NOW in my shop, and is listed for an introductory price of $5 for one week only! March 1st the price goes up to normal. So don’;t be late *wink*

Here are a few other photos of the finished bags and handle styles!

These are a great way to use old sweaters or revitalize an old scarf by adding pockets to the end. The pockets are great for holding keys, cell phones or just keeping your hands warm.Supplies1 old suit jacketsweatersbuttonslining fabric (I used fleece)sewing machineUse either coordinating sweaters or an old scarf. Cut off the ends of the jacket sleeves, mine average a finished length of around 9 inches. Cut them a little longer than you want so you can fold them down making a finished edge.

The Arts & Crafts movement was founded by a number of craftsmen, notably William Morris said “Have nothing in your home that you do not believe to be beautiful or useful" which was the mantra of Arts & Crafts furniture. Simple forms were used as their was no room for any additional decoration – natural materials were imperative, with their natural qualities being used as decorative features, such as the knots and grain of wood, along with exposed joints to show off the hand-worked crafts.

What better way to make your casserole dish easy to carry and keep it warm? This casserole carrier is a classic among my friends and family, and it is one of my "go to" wedding gifts. Over the years, I have used and tweaked different patterns until I now have the best yet. One of the features that I have added is being able to remove the carrying dowels because who doesn't need to wash something that food is carried in? I changed the placement of the velcro to accommodate variations in your pan size, and I skipped the quilting of the insulation to the fabric. You can also use it for cakes or brownies...anything that fits in your 9x13" pan. You can make it fairly plain (and personalize it if you have an embroidery machine) like the one shown here, or pick out any print you like. My instructions are simple, but you do need some basic sewing knowledge. A beginner should be able to make one of these. If you don't know how to sew, there are lots of online free sewing tutorials, so check them out. This instructable would be way too long if I try to teach you sewing basics.
