Hey everyone! How are you starting this special weekend?
Hope the Easter Bunny hopped around your home and left you some yummy stuff... I remember when my little Alex used to run around looking for his chocolate eggs... Well, time went by and he is a bit too grown-up for egg hunting now, but there's no such thing as being too old to eat chocolate right? So yeah, I had my good dose of sweets this week ;)
Speaking of sweet, I've got some pretty sweet news for you: A NEW BAG PATTERN! Do you remember this mysterious bag I've been posting pictures of...?
Well the mystery is over! I introduce to you: THE CAPRI BAG.
The Capri Bag is a roomy, baggy shoulder tote perfect for carrying your everyday items. It can be worn as a reversible bag with exterior pockets, and it features convenient adjustable handles... I am so thrilled the way it came out!
So, what's so special about this pattern? It's the first of my patterns to be presented in a PDF format... but not the downloadable ones; the Capri Bag pattern consists of a CD with a 40-page PDF file filled with instructions supported by full color diagrams and step-by-step pictures.
Plus, the real-size printed paper templates are included! You don't have to print and tape pages together.
So basically, you pop in the CD to your computer and you're all set to start sewing!
Who wants to give it a whirl? Well just leave me a comment about what you think about PDF patterns: yay or nay? What's your opinion on the PDF coming in a CD with the printed templates included as opposed to downloadable ones? Do you think PDF patterns will eventually replace the regular printed ones? And what do you like best? I think this could become an interesting debate!
For those who leave comments I will be entering your names in my magic hat for a giveaway, and 2 lucky winners will be receiving in the mail:
- A CAPRI BAG PATTERN (CD + printed paper templates)
- Plus THE FABRIC REQUIRED TO MAKE THE BAG -and you can choose the fabrics!
I'll announce the winners next Wednesday April 27.
Sounds good? Leave you comments and good luck everyone!
