I recently purchased a bunch of patterns from Michelle Patterns (formerly, Keyka Lou), and I am in love.  They are SO cute and fun to make.

This first one is her curvy clutch pattern.  I made mine in the small size.  I will be making the other sizes soon.


This wristlet is called a camera bag. . .  I am currently using it for my phone, but it could hold a variety of things, just not all at once.


I would be sewing more right now, but I have to clean up for company. . .

Your clutch is gorgeous - the fabrics look very rich :-)

I agree - she makes fun patterns - I have several as well!  Be sure to follow her blog as she posts a $5 sale on Fridays!  Today the Ditty Bag pattern is on sale, and she posted the templates and instructions for a heart shaped version!  The templates are free so if you already have the pattern you can do the heart version, or buy the pattern for $5 and then use the free heart templates :-)  She's going to post a larger heart version next week :-)

I made another Michelle's Patterns pattern (that is a mouthful), the reusable grocery pattern.

It is a floppy bag, just like the plastic ones it is designed to replace, so it is hard to photograph.  I just used it at Trader Joe's, so happy day.

I agree! I've been buying her patterns for years! I don't think she's come out with a bag that I don't like!

Love the clutch, camera case and the grocery bag! I've been meaning to make one of those! You may have just given me the inspiration! Smiley

That's a lot of nice bags. I love the materials you used on the grocery bags. So fun.

Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas?!  I bought some Star Wars and Avengers fabric for the "boys" (college age young men), but I am not sure if they would use them. . .

Made a few more Michelle patterns, the bubble pouch and another curvy clutch.  Both made from old jeans.

I made a couple of Michelle's keychain clutches.  Perfect for holding chapstick, cards, hand-sanitizer. . .

I have been making more things from Michelle's patterns. . .
The inset clutch:

This is one of the easiest zippers I have ever installed.

Just thought I'd share some more reusable totes I made from Michelle's patterns.  These are for my nephews, though I may have trouble parting with R2D2.
