Today I am very happy to announce the release of my new sewing pattern:
The Pink Peony Bag! One of the really nice features of this pattern: it comes for free! It is scheduled to be posted tomorrow, Thursday May 8, on the fabulous blog of Sew Mama Sew. Simply head over there tomorrow morning to get the complete pattern for instant download!
It measures approximately 5 1/2“ x 9 1/2“ x 1“ / 14 x 24 x 2.5 cm (height x width x depth).
There are three ways to use this purse: It has a long strap so you can wear it over the shoulder. Simply tuck in and hide the strap and you will be able to carry this little purse as a clutch. Or you may use it as a wristlet by simply clipping on the short strap to a D-ring on the flap.

In order to shorten the waiting time until tomorrow a bit I thought I'd show show you all the gorgeous bags that my testers made. They did an incredible job as always and it is really fun to see how different all their Pink Peony Bags turned out:
Ree from Sincerely, Ree also made two versions of the Pink Peony Bag. Honestly, I don't know anybody who uses ruffles more creatively in their projects as she does. Go check out her blog to see more of her projects.
The pink purses are awesome as well. Vicky made them as Barbie purses for her daughter!
I love the fabric that Sally used for her bag! It's the perfect combo of black and white vs. color, and the different prints go so well together. Sally blogs over at Life in Sally's World, so go check out her other projects.
I hope you like all the different versions as much as I do! If you want to make a Pink Peony Bag yourself make sure to head over to Sew Mama Sew and download your free pattern!

Happy sewing everybody!
