This crafty little bag, my Mod Satchel, is what I made for the Dritz Challenge. I was sent a box full of notions to play with from Dritz and boy, was it fun! And of course, there's a trick to the Mod Satchel. It's made with faux leather (vinyl) and has two drawstrings that run through the grommets. There are two Dritz 'Glamour Rings,' one attached to each drawstring and to the handle. So when you pull up on the handle, the bag cinches shut. That's my favorite feature, I'm so proud of it. :) This download includes basic instructions and the pattern for the circle bottom. See step by step photos to go with the instructions on my blog at: BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sew straight lines and curves Press SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 10 1/2'' tall x 8'' wide

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
