You may remember that a wee while ago I was teasing you with a preview of a magazine that I was going to appear in. Well the time has come, get your wallets out and head to WH Smiths, Creative Bag Making hits the shelves today!
The last time I was trying to get you to guess which one on the test cover was mine, and most of you failed miserably ;o) However, here is my contribution, a simple beach tote:
I got the fun fabric in Provence a couple of years ago, and it just screamed summer and beaches to me (possibly I was thinking of fancy deckchairs!) I wonder what I’ll find there this summer…
In other bag related news, there’s been a bit of a delay to the Bag-Along preparation, and a couple of my testers have had unavoidable crises which has meant they won’t be able to get theirs done, so if you would be interested in testing the Bag-Along bag, with a new deadline of 13/06/13, please let me know in the comments – I’m looking for 3 volunteers if possible.
that is awesome!! Congratulations 🙂
Can we have your autograph, please?
Go on missus, I'll have a go at your bag pattern. Only thing is what about fabrics etc. Do I make from my stash? I have some notting hill I'd put aside for a bag. And as long as it's nothing like the weekender bag!!!
Get you, publushed!!! I'll look out for it next time I get yo the shos
Well done, looks fab! :o)
yay, way to go Katy!!!! Congrats.
congrats on the publication
Wow – congrats Katy. That's pretty awesome!
Fabulous! looks like a great bag!
Wonderful!! Congratulations to you, the bag is beautiful.
Dancing round singing "I know someone famous " here . Well done Katy!
But how do we find this fabulousnes in the US? I SO wish I had time to be a bag tester for you. Seriously, I'm quite bag phobic so I would be a really good tester. But I'm going to be gone and won't get it done in time. Keep me on the list, though. If I can make a bag, anyone can. 🙂
Sweet! It looks great!
Congrats!! It IS a beachy fabric and looks wonderful.
Well done you – must try and get me a copy today. Would offer my testing services but am away in June.
Congratulations on being published, will definitely keep an eye out for this.
Well done Katy! I'll check out my local W H Smith this weekend
Ooh! Beach bag super star!! How very exciting!!! Congratulations!!!!
Yay! Congratulations! It is such a cute bag!
WOW!!! Katy has been published!!! Congrats, the beach tote is fantastic! I'm going to see if they sell the magazine here so I can get my very own copy.
I told myself if you didn't have three testers by the time I got around to commenting I'd throw caution to the wind and offer my services. Mind you I've never made a bag but know my way around a sewing machine and can follow instructions fairly well.
I love your bag, congrats!
I actually bought a magazine at Malvern quilt show to use up a centre panel I got there last year! I will order my sighted-minions to look out for your cover feature next time they're in Smiths though … very awesome that you're featured 🙂 … I've never made a bag (if you exclude the little drawstring corduroy bag I knocked together as a teenager to hold some home-made runes!) so it'll be interesting to see how I get on 🙂
Congratulations Katy!It is a shame we don't get a lot of these mags here in Australia.
Would love to test your pattern another time but I am going to be busy till end of June I think! At least! Sorry Katy
That's so cool! Well done, K!
Hey, well done. Is it framed yet? juliex
Congratumalations! What did your parents say? If my kids got published, I'd demand a version for myself. 😀
