Surprise FREE $6.95 Pattern For You: We Want Everyone To Win On Mother’s Day!

As most of our readers know, we're finishing up a huge giveaway on Mother's Day, which is this Sunday, for a $1,149 RRP Janome 1600P-QC Straight-Stitch machine.  However, there's only going to be one winner.  I truly wish everyone could win this wonderful prize, but our sponsors are only giving us one, unfortunately.  If you've not yet entered, please don't miss out and ENTER HERE.

So I thought about how we could make everyone a winner and hopefully make Mother's Day more special for all our readers.  And we decided to give everyone for FREE one of our most popular patterns for the Lucy Tote Bag which normally sells on our Craftsy store for $6.95.  This is only for this weekend and ends midnight on Sunday so download soon.

The Lucy Tote Bag is a stylish tote bag with a few nice touches that I think you'll really like.

The Lucy Tote Bag Pattern.

This project has a lot of techniques that will be familiar to you, but you might also try a few new skills along the way such as adding the zipper pocket to the outside or adding in the top zipper.

Unlike many similar projects, this design has no pattern pieces to print so it's very easy, even for those without a printer.

Pattern difficulty = Intermediate


Features of the Lucy Tote Bag Pattern:

  • Zipper top for security
  • Inside slip pockets
  • Flat base
  • Outside zipper pocket
  • Nice handles with rectangle rings and tabs
  • Great pattern to showcase a really nice fabric print
  • Contrast top and lining for a little extra design flair

    I am making the Lucy Tote & am puzzled: I cut (2) 14 ½ x 14 (body of purse) 0f PFF & (2) 14 ½ x 14 (lining) . Is the lining interfaced & then PFF applied or does the PFF go on the main fabric for the body of the bag. I can’t find in the directions where the PFF goes.
    Thank you!
