See How Easy It Is To Make and Embellish Our Gracie Handbag

Kaye Wood GracieLazies, I’m so excited to tell you that you can now watch me demonstrate our Gracie Handbag design at

Click on the image to tune in.

The Gracie Handbag is one of our easiest designs and it’s a great first project if you’d like to try your hand at making a bag.

This feature is one that I taped a couple for the pilot series ‘Quilters ToolBox’. It’s a nice overview of Gracie and then we share some details and embellishment ideas.

In this episode, the wall behind me is decorated with bags made by customers of QuiltTrends Quilt Shop in Columbus, OH. Here are pictures of some of the bags seen in the background of the episode. Click on each bag to enlarge.

    I loved the Gracie Handbag Pattern, I’m hoping to pick up some at the Trend Show next week.

    I know you say not to use directional prints, but this bag is a wonderful use of those beautiful directionals. I did an angel bag for Christmas time. I just pieced the fabric together in opposite directions at what would be the bottom, leaving it a little larger than I needed for the bag, and cut it out accordingly. You give similar instructions on your Whimsy Bag pattern.

    I have made so many of your Gracie handbags for family and friends. They are always loved and very much appreciated. I am at the present in the middle of making another perhaps for myself this time.:) The instructions are very easy to follow.
