NEW: Molly Maker Bag and Gertie Gift Boxes Patterns

Lazies, Join me in welcoming our two new patterns Molly and Gertie! Molly Maker Bag is the perfect project bag. You’ll want one for each hand work project so everything is together and ready to go when you are. And when you are done with that project, you might need a Gertie Gift Box to wrap your latest creation in style. Gertie and Molly are both fat quarter projects with simple construction. Printed patterns available at your fave quilt shop November 9, PDF patterns available now, info below.

Molly Maker Bag LGD145

Molly is a soft-sided carry-all, designed to sit open for easy access to project supplies. From English paper piecing to yarn projects, Molly holds everything beautifully. Make a Molly for each project you have underway. A full size skein of yarn fits nicely. I plan to make a Molly lined with our Slicker vinyl for an easy lunch tote. Get Molly

Fat Quarter Friendly Sewing Project

Molly’s secret – stack and chop fat quarters. Fat quarter cuts can vary a little in size. Molly’s size is based on the fat quarters you use, so you can’t go wrong – all fat quarters work. Lined with simple tie closure.

Great for Kids Carry All
Molly’s also wonderful for kids stuff on the go. Fill with dolls, crafting, or coloring supplies and she’s the perfect activity bag for busy kids.

Interfacing for Molly Maker Bag
Molly gets her soft support from our Face-It Soft 100% cotton woven fusible interfacing. Choose our Face-It Soft 1yd packaged cut SLG1031, or yardage from the bolt SLG103.

Gertie Gift Boxes LGD144

Get ready to fall in love! Gertie can hold a gift, or be the gift. Fill with candy, trinkets, or a treasure. These DIY gift boxes have a unique closure that’s deceptively easy and holds the whole box together. Use two coordinating fabrics per gift box. The lining fabric shows on the closure band for contrast. Get Gertie

Interfacing for Gertie
Gertie gets her structure from our Stiff Stuff firm interfacing, now available in a project-sized cut 20″ x 40″, item SLG1071. This packaged cut is enough to make two large or one large plus two small Gerties. It’s also enough to make a medium/large sized bag. Equivalent to eight 10″ squares.
