New Patterns from Emmaline Bags + Giveaway!

Have you heard of Emmaline Bags? If not, you are in for a treat! Janelle is the very talented designer behind Emmaline Bags.

I first met Janelle when she entered and won a fabric giveaway right here at Craft Buds. She and I e-mailed back and forth because she was moving across the globe, so she told me I could either wait until after the move, or mail it to her relatives. I waited, which was a mistake, because I almost forgot to mail her fabric!

You can follow Janelle’s blog or connect with her on Facebook to get the latest news on her bag patterns. But I’m happy to share two of her newest sewing patterns with you here today:

The Boyd St. Bowling Bag

My friend Veronica recently pattern tested a version of Janelle’s new pattern, the Boyd St. Bowling Bag. Here’s her version–isn’t it gorgeous?

Online Quilting Class

I love how roomy this bag is, and the look of the leather handles against a bright and summer print. Here’s another version that would be perfect for carrying all your belongings in style.

The Necessary Clutch Wallet Pattern

Another one of Janelle’s new patterns is The Necessary Clutch Wallet. I love the pretty lines and metal turn lock clasp on the wallet front! Inside, there’s plenty of room for your credit cards, cash and more. If you check out her blog, you’ll find some great step-by-step tutorials showing how to add a wrist or purse strap to the clutch, how to print PDF patterns, and more!


One lucky reader will win a generous prize package (a $42 value) from Emmaline Bags!

Boyd St. Bowling Bag ePattern + 1 Hardware Kit (pictured)
