These are pictures of the bags that I will be teaching in a class next Saturday. The little one is from an Atkinson Designs pattern called Lollipop Bags. The second is one of mine, Cool Cat Creations, I have designed it from the left-overs from the first bag when starting with 3 fat quarters. The second bag is a much larger size and great for a cosmetic bag, the Lollipop bag is perfect for carrying a few essentials, and this size is popular among young people right now. Lots of people are afraid to put a zipper in, so this is a good opportunity to try, both bags have zippers. The main fabric that I have used is a gorgeous Laurel Burch fabric.
I am a pattern designer, my patterns are under the name of Cool Cat Creations. Yes, I do love cats and have 4 of them. I was always interested in quilting but drawing, painting and making clothing got in the way. I took a beginner course about 11 years ago, I had already studied tailoring and pattern drafting, then started teaching. I still teach quilting classes, love it. I started the pattern business about 3 years ago.
