new pattern - just in time for the new year

I wrote this pattern a while ago for a workshop I taught last month.  Because it was dated 2015, I figured I'd better get this published before the new year so I didn't have to change the date. ;)

It's available as a PDF only in my shop.  You can find it here.  It went through rigorous testing and all the ladies in my workshop (thank you again, Alberta Quilt Study Society gals!) were very happy with their new shopping bags.

If you are as much of a fan of Robert Kaufman's Essex linen in "Natural" as I am, this is the perfect project to use some of that gorgeous fabric.  The end result is a fun take on the traditional brown paper bag.  Paired with your favourite print - and you don't need to use much! - the linen really shows off the feature fabric.  And there's a lot of opportunity to personalize this pattern, too.  Do whatever you like to make it your own.  It's a super roomy bag to tote around a lot of stuff fron the market, to your next quilting class, to the beach ... one can never have too many pretty bags!
