Well, yeah launch feels like too strong a term to use here but it's a mini launch at least with much more to come. I've been wanting to start an on-line store of sorts with some sewn goods and some and (here comes the launch) some downloadable patterns for sale. I've been busy with the moving to Belgium thing so I figured I'll start small with a really easy, fast and cute pattern.
It's the Monterey Market Bag, that's the first one now available for immediate gratification, got that creative itch, but don't know what to make download. Why call it the Monterey Market Bag you may ask (you're probably not asking but I'll tell you anyway). When I used to live in Monterey California and Santa Cruz Cali too, they had these weekly farmer's markets filled with all kinds of beautiful produce and handmade goods for sale. There would always be a couple of booths filled with slouchy, simple, pretty, practically sized, bags made from leftover upholstery and other fabric, Indian saris, etc. The bags had a cool hippy vibe, cause they were made by cool, hippie women for the most part. And they always tempted me. This bag reminds me of those, totally simple, slouchy, would look great with leftover scraps, and you can make a bunch of em quickly if you want to make some quick presents.
Well, I hope you like it and we'll have another downloadable bag to introduce real soon and I promise to pick the winner of the giveaway in the next few days, I really promise!!
