We have aimed to keep these patterns as simple as possible with minimal sections to join and no curves or Y seams. Ideal for tags, bags and pouches and more so you can wrap your presents with style. Our pattern format has been revamped for a cleaner, leaner format with a smaller file size and less to print and download! Penny and I have made a series of projects for you to see here. Many use Jeni's Lined Drawstring Bag Pattern which is excellent for creating bags of many sizes and we will be sharing our tips on adapting the blocks for the pattern. I also made a mat (tutorial to follow) to showcase the first two patterns 'Candy Tree' and 'Noel'. The blocks are the same width (2") and work beautifully together. I don't use solids often and I think I need to review that as they glow in this mat!
You can easily enlarge all the blocks in the pattern set and we include instructions for this. I enlarged the 'Noel' pattern by 150% to make 3" blocks in this project sized bag from Jeni's pattern.
Penny designed the most adorable 'Christmas Dress' block and it looks perfect with the plaid in this drawstring bag.
She captured our favourite 1950s vintage vibe in the 'Retro Bulb' block. She used the CD bag from Jeni's pattern with this block to make a gift bag.
