“Yes, I made this Sew Sweetness Holland Road Bag” Thank You to all the folks compliments I’ve gotten on this bag, from friends, family and strangers alike 🙂 Sara created this bag with the Beginner Sewist in mind, with basic pattern pieces, small curves, easy slip pockets, a little hardware and a button. You can easily add to this bag with advanced techniques and additional hardware too if you are a more experienced bag maker.

I made it even quicker by using Cotton Webbing for the handles and adding just 3 slip pockets instead of the 6 called for. I’m using mine as a tote to hold my tech/phone wallet and checkbooks so less pockets works for me…and I was running out of sewing time that day, LOL!

Told you Id be back…just didn’t think it would be 5mos later, LOL! Let me start by saying Thank You Sara of Sew Sweetness,  for just the right Bag to get me motivated to blog! I’ll be making another one or 3 of these bags! I’ve been a happy follower of Sew Sweetness for quite some time as I admire her choice of fabrics, her bags, her dresses, her style and I love that we both live in the suburbs of Chicago! We got to meet in person at The Sewing Summit last fall.  Yes, she is as adorable in person as she is on her blog and Im sew happy that she is opening her own pattern shop, Congrats Sara!  Click the photo to get a better look…its got 5 zippers on the front and a recessed zipper across the top, This Bag Rawks!!! The pattern can be found here .

I also need to say Thank You Mom, for sending the perfect Fabric and making the request for lots of pockets so long ago, long before Sara even posted that she was looking for pattern testers! Your “Mom” vibes were totally working that day, xox

ok, I still owe a post on The Sewing Summit so Ill be back…
