Another new sewing pattern that I’ve just released and added to my Etsy shop is the brand new ABC Diaper Bag Pattern (baby changing bag). This was so much fun to make! It’s a big, roomy bag with a full zipper closure and lots of pockets.
This nappy bag pattern will help you to make a substantial bag which is double interfaced for strength, durability and stability, so it’s not floppy. The interior pockets are elasticated to keep things in place and it also has four exterior pockets too. So you’ll be able to carry all the bits and bobs you need to for baby or toddler!
I’ve placed this pattern as suitable for advanced sewers, as it’s got lots of pieces and lots of techniques to do as you go along. It’s certainly not for the faint-hearted, that’s for sure! However, it’s a project that you’ll just love getting your teeth into and, if you’re a confident intermediate sewer, by all means give it a go. I’ve ensured that I’ve included lots of helpful advice, instructions and full-colour images so that you’ll be able to make a bag to be really proud of!
Hope you like! Happy Sewing!

I’ve been busy creating some new sewing patterns which are available in my Etsy shop now! (15% off this week too!!).
So the first up is a newly updated version of my popular Smart Phone / iPod Sleeve sewing pattern. It’s been totally revamped and now includes 3 sizes of pouch to suit most modern smart phones. Have a look at the new Smart Phone Sleeves Sewing Pattern x 3 sizes in my Etsy shop!
The original design was for gadgets up to 3” x 4.5” in size but, of course, phones are so much bigger now aren’t they? So the new pattern set includes that size, as well as two larger sizes for gadgets up to 3” x 5.75” and 3” x 6.5”. I’ve made some new samples of the pouches too! Hope you like them and I hope you have a chance to try out the new pattern. Happy Sewing! x

Don’t you just love Liberty of London fabrics? I used the gorgeous Wiltshire L Tana Lawn to make this evening bag design – the Wiltshire Handbag.
The fabric is soft and silky and lends itself very well to making a special bag for events and evenings out. The lilac and blue version is my favourite but it also comes in red and lilac on a white background, which would work just as well. The use of woven cotton interfacing and cotton lining, makes this bag strong and sturdy whilst retaining the soft handle of the cotton lawn.
I used some good quality purse hardware to compliment this bag; silver D-rings, swivel snaps and a nice round twist/turn lock for the flap closure. These are availabe from most good bagmaking supplies stores. So, if you’d like to get on with making this luxurious bag, visit my Etsy shop to download the Wiltshire Handbag sewing pattern.
Another absolutely gorgeous version of my Petite Street Nappy Bag, made by Rebecca Santiago. Thanks for sharing Rebecca, I’m so pleased you enjoyed using the sewing pattern to make this lovely bag!
“I’m delighted with the way it turned out. Thanks for the awesome pattern!” Rebecca.
If you’d like to have a go at making this bag, it’s available in my Etsy shop or my UK shop, SusieDDesigns.
Here’s Polly Bell’s version of my Barcelona Satchel sewing pattern. Fantastic, I love the fabrics used and what a great all round job Polly has made of this gorgeous bag. Very unique and eye-catching!
“I thought that you might like to see my finished bag.I have added a pocket on the gusset for my phone and a clip on the other side to put my keys on when not wearing pockets. I have also added a zip to the top of the bag for added security. I hope you like the look of your design in my colours.” Polly
