New Pattern - New Bag from Threads On My Socks


The pdf pattern for my Little Nicki Bag is finally done & available in my Etsy Shop.
This was a fun pattern to work on, even though it took a long time, to get it all together.
I designed this bag to carry all my many projects from place to place. I love to dabble with so many different mediums, seems a bag is always needed. And it needed to have handles, so a pouch wasn't going to work. I need handles on bags because my hands & arms are always full. 
Yes, I like stuff! Sewing, Artsy, Crafty Stuff ...

mother's day sewing from Threads On My Socks

I've been sewing more little happy bags. I'm sort of in a pink mode, maybe girly....oh bother....I just love pink! I'm making the bags for Mother's Day, to send to sisters, friends & of course Mom. We usually have a little get-together at Mom's but I suppose this year that will not happen. I am still going to see my Mom....just won't hug her, (coronavirus adjustments) instead I'll fill a bag with a little happy & hugs. Homemade cookies comes to mind!

These bags really sew up quickly and are layer cake ...

a Little Happy Bag from Threads On My Socks

I've been busy sewing this Spring and I made a little happy bag. It's great for special little things, like carrots...just kidding. I stitched them up awhile ago and had them displayed in a bowl for Easter. But I thought they looked real cute with the bag.

The bag has been in pattern writing stage for far too long & with some extra time here lately, I decided it was time to get it done. I am very happy with it and have sewn several. They are just so quick & easy & the best part is selecting all the ...
