Hi there! Hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and were able to spend lots of time with friends and family. And thanks so much for your support during my Annual Sale, I appreciate it more than you know. It’s going to be a busy December! I’m super excited that today, pre-orders are going on sale for the Bag of the Month Club for 2015! If you haven’t heard of the club before, please click here to view the club offerings from 2014 so you can get a better idea about what quality bag patterns that are in store for you in the 2015 Club! You can see my contribution from last year’s club here: the Poolside Tote.
6 awesome bag sewing pattern designers have teamed together to bring you a 6-month membership club. The club runs from January-June of 2015. Each month, you will receive an exclusive and brand-new pdf bag sewing pattern from that month’s designer, delivered directly to your inbox. If you are familiar with even one of the designers, then you know that you can expect a high-quality and easy-to-understand sewing pattern each month!
The bag designs will be a mystery until each pattern is revealed every month. We promise, they will definitely be worth the wait! The patterns will be exclusive to the club for the duration. Each pdf pattern will be delivered on the 1st of the month, and will include detailed instructions, illustrations/photos, and templates needed to make the bag pattern.
If you join after the club begins, you will receive all patterns released to the club up until that point (for instance, if you join on February 14th, you will receive the patterns for January and February automatically).
We are all so excited for you to join us! The one-time fee for 6 months of Bag of the Month Club is $40, during which time you will receive 6 pdf bag sewing patterns. HOWEVER, if you sign up during the month of December 2014, you will receive an early-bird membership fee of only $35! The club runs from January through June of 2014. The club is a great value; pdf bag sewing patterns usually cost around $10 each, and you will be receiving 6 patterns for only $40 (or $35 in December)!
January – Samantha from Sewing Patterns with Mrs. H. is a Welsh pattern designer with a group of pretty yet practical bags in her pattern library. I heard about January’s bag design and I was very excited, as it’s a piece of purse hardware that I have never used before, but always wanted to. Look out for January’s bag, as it’s going to be amazing!
February – Sara from Sew Sweetness. She likes bags with a lot of pretty details, and we had a lot of requests last time for smaller bags, so she’s going to see what she can come up with! She claims smaller bags are challenging for her to design, but she’ll come up with something amazing I know! 🙂 She is the author or Big City Bags.
March – (it’s me!) Anna from Noodlehead. I think I’ve got something planned out for what my pattern will be, but feel free to suggest any features you might want to see in the comment section below. My first book is due out in February 2015, called Handmade Style: 24 Must-Have Basics to Stitch, Use, and Wear.
April – Janelle of Emmaline Bags. Janelle has a thriving pattern business, where she also sells all the hardware, handles, and interfacing needed to make the bag patterns in her shop. Janelle’s first book is coming out in 2015.
May – Betz White is a bag designer and textile artist, and she is the author of three books, most recently Present Perfect: 25 Gifts to Sew and Bestow. You can find her patterns available on-line in her pattern shop, as well as her video classes on Creative Bug and Craftsy.
June – Chris of Chris W. Designs is an Australian bag pattern designer, and Chris has sewing patterns available for various skill levels. Her linky party, Bag Brag Tuesday, is also great for linking up your finished projects and seeing what everyone else is making!
