It's so hard to believe that it's now 2012 AND that January is more than halfway over!  Where does the time go to?  Cath and I have had a busy time over the Christmas/New Year period and hope to bring you lots of new and exciting projects in the coming year.  We hope that everyone had a happy and peaceful time over the Christmas period and that you too are ready to get your fingers busy and into lots of new projects in 2012!

This post has some new projects from both of us as well as Cath's next installment of her Teddies Swag.

Louella was the lucky winner of our draw and your surprise will be winging it's way to you as we speak.  Louella will receive a small Christmas banner and a pattern from Jan as well as a pattern from Cath.  Lucky girl!

Now for our showcase of patterns.....

Dreamtime is another of my newest designs.  Looks great in the aboriginal fabric but would also work well with any choice  Roomy and with bamboo handles this bag is great for shopping or taking to your quilt group meeting.

Paper Pattern is $12 AUD plus P&H
Epattern is $7 AUD

Orient Express would work well as a knitting bag but also suitable for any application.  The pattern also has instructions for the clutch purse.  Would look stunning using any style of fabric.

Paper Pattern is $12 AUD plus P&H
Epattern $7 AUD

Tokyo Tote is a very stylish bag with an unusal assymetrical flap utilising a Japanese trim to suit the chosen fabric.  Lovely long shoulder strap which could be altered to suit and like all of my bag designs it suits any style of fabric.
