What a great surprise! The Sugar and Spice Bag Sew Along is over, the prizes have been awarded and my bag got an Honorable Mention. How fun is that? I got to pick a free pattern from Chris W Designs. It wasn't too hard for me to decide. I am such a fan of hers that I had all of her patterns but two. I chose the Eve Clutch. (That only leaves Emma).
Congratulations to the first place winner Heidi Simkin, and the other Honorable Mention, Michelle Brown Burke. All of the bags were so beautiful. I think we were all winners.
I didn't have this bag very long. Someone saw it and contacted me to buy it. I was only too happy to oblige! She wanted a wallet to match, so I just completed a Necessary Clutch Wallet from Emmaline Bags to go with it.
These two patterns are among my most favorite patterns to make and both look so professional when done. I have made nine Sugar and Spice Bags now and probably close to twenty Necessary Clutch Wallets. If you haven't yet tried either of these patterns, you are really missing out.
You can find the Sugar and Spice Bag here, and the Necessary Clutch Wallet here.
