Introducing Posh Bracelet Bag

Who does not love a new handbag!! A good handbag tops off an outfit beautifully. I own a lot of handbags from mid range to designer, I have made so many handbags over the last few years many of which were helping pattern designers test their bags.

I love a lot of different types of bags from the practical to the just for fun to those for special occasions. I think you need some of everything. One thing I found I wanted was more bags that push the envelop on style. Something more cutting edge of fashion and even items you may see carried down the runway. That’s why I really wanted to start designing my own bags. 


Last week I lived that dream by launching my first bag pattern. Posh Bracelet Bag. She is a small wonder. She was designed to give you that “posh” look, something a bit special that you want to wear when you don’t want the usual oversized, overwork tote but also with a crossbody so she can still be practical for running errands.

Posh is approximately 8 inches wide and 7.5 inches tall but don’t worry she can carry everything you need while on the run. I stuffed in there a small wallet, sunglasses, compact, ChapStick, sunglasses, and of course courtesy of Corona a mask. She can be made with cotton, vinyl, cork and soft leather.

Good Golly Miss Molly!!

Sallie Tomato is Relaunching Molly!

Molly is a great bag by Sallie Tomato that I recently tested for her relaunch and she is a beauty!! I never made the original bag under its original name Union St. Satchel so I can’t compare but I can say this bag is a pretty easy make with big style!!

Molly is a great tote bag that has a really cute feature that allows you to clip the sides in to make a fun new shape. Coupled with the snap closer I feel this also helps with the safety of this bag that does not have a zipper closer. I like the extra security. The bag is 19 inches wide, 12 inches high, and 7.5 inches deep.


My Make, I must admit I was a little worried this bag was not quite my normal style but I truly love it now that is made. I made it with Terrarium by Jason Yenter purchased at The Fabric Candy Shoppe.

I used a shiny black croc embossed vinyl for the handles. It took me forever to figure out my fabric choices  and was a bit nervous if this would work but now I love it!! Even my husband commented on much he likes the look!!  “It’s very Springy!” was his exact comment.


Now that I have carried the bag for couple weeks I can say it is such a fun bag to carry! It is  perfect for the summer and to wear with fun solid summer dresses. It also pairs well with jean shorts and a tank top I am living in to survive the Texas summer heat. Overall this pattern is a real winner in my book. A pretty quick make and I would say good for even a confident beginner. The only thing I would change for my next one would be to not put on the side strap D ring and clip and just attach it all the way up. Definitely not a flaw just a choice.


What do you think of this bag! It you would like to try it head over the Sallie Tomato and grab a copy!
