Handbags from Sherrod Studio

Hi It's Kim from Sherrod Studio and I also blog over here. I would like to thank Madame Samm for inviting me to guest post today. Let's see where to start. When I was in elementary school I took a home ec class that taught me how to sew. That was the first time I had ever sewn anything. I stopped sewing for many years. A little over 11 years ago I decided to take a quilting class and that's when I got bitten by the quilting bug. Over the years I've made many quilts and the last 3 years I got into making handbags. I love to design my own patterns so I decided it was time to open up shop. I started Sherrod Studio to share my creativity with others and I am having a blast designing.


These are the 4 bag patterns I started. 


The Carolina Bag. This is nice and big for traveling, the beach or just around town. I carry this everywhere.



This is the Seabrook bag. This pattern has instructions for two sizes and two different front pocket options.




The Florence bag is a small bag. The strap is removable and it's long enough to wear cross body style with a zipper closure. If you've never done zippers, don't worry, the instructions are super easy to follow.




Last but not least is the Siena Bag. This bag also has long straps to wear across your body and the little zipper pocket in front for more storage and to keep your things secure. 




I am also giving away the Siena bag pattern in PDF format and enough fabrics for you to make one. Head on over here  to enter and leave a comment on this post also. 


To thank you all for visiting, I am offering a 15% discount on all PDF patterns.
