I've got a treat for you today!

Today I want to share with you all the great 2-Zip Hipsters that my friend Pat has made. She's the one who introduced me to this bag pattern and taught the class I took. She has been sewing bags/pouches/totes of all kinds for many years now and is an expert at it. She knows all the tricks/tips that make a good bag into a great bag. The mother of three daughters, who although I've not met them yet, sound like they have exceptionally good taste, you can just imagine all the great bags she's made for them. She doesn't limit her sewing to bags though, and sews clothing for her grand kids too. And, on top of all that, she is the nicest person you would ever want to meet.

(Please excuse some of my blurry photos. I didn't have the best light the day I took these and I have not yet figured out a good way to photograph the interiors of the bags.)




The above bag is a beautiful pale grey and the outer rings on the red flower are more of a blue-red than an orange-red. This is one of those color combinations that is difficult to photograph.


Aren't they wonderful? I bought one from her and I love it. I didn't show it here because I didn't want to make anyone jealous! :)) Yes, I could have made it myself, but then I would have had to hunt down the main bag and lining fabrics (I love the fabrics she used) if I could still find it, the right size/color zippers and the hardware. Decided it was in my best interest to buy it from her... besides, I like the idea of owning a bag that Pat made. :)

Pat is going to be opening an Etsy shop very shortly, but before that happens, I wanted to take this opportunity to share her bags on my blog and give you all the opportunity to purchase one if you so desire. $60 each + $5.70 shipping via USPS flat rate priority. USA only at this time. Contact me via email and we'll handle the details or if you have questions. Visit the 2-Zip Hipster link for additional information on the size of the bag and the number and placement of pockets.

I'll be sure and let it be known when Pat opens her Etsy shop. She's going to have a really cute name, but you'll just have to wait and visit her shop to find out what it is.

Take care,

WOW!!! Each and everyone of them is beautiful. One of the first things I look at when someone makes a bag is if the stitching is straight and the zipper is nicely put in and these are just perfection. I wish pat loads of success with her bag sales. Not that she needs it, these should go like hot cakes.
