Handbag Sewing Patterns in Creating Country Threads and Homespun Magazine

January was a very exciting month for Little Green Cottage with two handbag sewing patterns being published. The first appeared in Australian Homespun Magazine. It was commissioned to feature something Australian to tie in with the monthly theme. And being partial to my garden I thought it appropriate to include some little Wrens dancing amongst the Spring blossoms.


























I always enjoy designing bag patterns because they come in very useful for all my sewing projects.

The second of my bag designs appeared in the Applique Creating Country Threads Yearbook. It features Poppies which have been created from Yo Yos and I have hand embroidered the stems and appliqued the leaves. The bag is made from a lovey piece of wool that I sourced last winter. I think it will make the perfect knitting bag.



































The patterns for both handbag sewing projects are currently available so look out for them at your local newsagents. They will also be available as downloadable patterns from the Stitching Cow website within the next few months.

Hope you like them, which one is your favourite?
Until next time.
Warmly Lenna

I love them both, I just couldn't pick a favorite. How wonderful to see your work in these magazines. I cannot wait to see what projects you create this new year.

Hi Lenna,
I find it hard to choose my favourite, but I would have to pick the one in Homespun. I am so pleased for you being 'published.' I have just started following your blog and a friend of mine in the states has asked about you. You are international. All the best for the new year ahead of you.

I love sewing dresses, and this edition of the magazine is something new that I would love to try.
