3 BAGS for OCTOBER 2014

Always at  20% Off Retail, all sizes, all colors

3 lg bags280


This month at I offer you a choice of three different size bags in easy patterns to stitch. All three bag kits provide wool and fabric for a front and back panel (identical) and finishing instructions but do not include finishing materials since those can be highly personal. You will be the only one among your friends to have a bag uniquely yours. Every time I carry one of our bags or pocket books I get questions like “where did you get that bag?”, followed by “how hard is it to stitch?”, and, “how long does it take?”. If you have stitched a cross-point kit for pillows before, you can say with confidence “not long at all”. That’s the beauty of my cross-point technique – “easy, fast, fun”- guaranteed!


The largest size is in my 12th CENTURY GEOMETRIC  pattern, 13″ wide by 14″ high, it is a great size for quick shopping trips, or carrying extras to work. 12thCentury lg bag 200

We finished our bag with a light brown leather strap and gusset, lined it with black cotton, we included a zippered pocket to keep small items separate, and we added a zipper across the top edge.

Regular Price $119; Special DOM $95.20

The medium size bag, 14″ wide by 11″ high, in my fun to stitch BALOUCH pattern, is a nice size to replace an off the shelf pocket book. The colors of navy, camel, cranberry and dark red are eminently usable with fall and winter colors.

Regular Price $109; Special DOM $87.20

The smallest bag in cross-point’s popular pattern PISAC is only 13″ wide by 10″ high, the perfect size to carry your iPad and iPhone or any other brand pad and phone.
