Hyacinth bag by Sew Sweetness and a Giveaway!

Welcome to my stop on the SewPro Stars Blog Hop where I am sharing my version of the Hyacinth bag by Sew Sweetness! Sara Lawson is a pattern and fabric deisgner from Chicago who has also published two books and has a class on Craftsy.

I hope you are enjoying reading about everyone’s SewPro experience and what they brought away from the conference. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend this year due to an already planned trip. I already have next year’s dates marked off on my calendar though! I am loving seeing how excited and motivated everyone was to implement new things that they learned. My social media posts are what I have been focusing on.

Today I am featuring a pattern by Sew Sweetness. I absolutely love the Hyacinth bag. This fabric was at a quilt shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I knew immediately that it needed to be this bag! Make sure you read the cartoons.

The only modification I made was to have the card/coin pocket double as a slip pocket. It fits my phone perfectly so that I don’t have to undo the zipper to get to it, just lift the flap.

I never carried a bag before last year. Then we moved on to a boat and I discovered that I was good at dropping things in the water. Really good. Carrying this bag has saved me from dropping numerous things in the drink (as they say in sailor speak).
