Change can be good, Some new help with a new pattern:)

Ironworks by Michael Miller Ladybug Shoulder bag Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled Hi All, I would like to make a few suggestions to those who have the Sew Spoiled Ladybug Shoulder bag ebook . This pattern is great, however there are a few things I have tried out since it was released and you might want to make these changes too. First change, I fused interfacing to the lining. This made the bag sturdier but I will tell you it was a little more challenging to sew down the binding later in the bag making process. Second, I used the pockets tutorial from my Sew Spoiled Versatile Bag ebook . I cut the same size pockets out for this bag (Pocket A and Pocket B) and it worked beautifully. Third, I cut the Heat n bond lite 1 3/4" X 68" just to make sure the Heat n Bond would not be exposed. Happy Sewing!!!

Embroidery on Canvas!!!

Retro Mama apron bag front1 Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled Hey Folks, I have fallen in love with canvas lately!!! I went to embroider this bag and could not fit the stabilizer and canvas fabric into my hoop. So I took the stabilizer off and stretched the canvas in the hoop and crossed my fingers. I know that you are not suppose to do that but I am happy with the results. If it had been a tighter woven design it might not have worked as well but I certainly will try it again and keep you posted:)

Retro Mama Apron bag by Sew Spoiled

Retro Mama apron bag Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled Yes!! That is right I made an apron for my bag!!!! It is adorable and all the apron pockets are great for storing accessories. When the design popped into my head I drew it out and started cutting into the fabric. I love it when a plan comes together. If you are wondering how did she do that, then stay tuned, this pattern is sure to hit my etsy store soon.

I always have my Sew Spoiled ebooks with me, they are flexible and they save resources like paper and gas:) If you have not give Sew Spoiled ebooks a try you should!!!! After you purchase the pattern of your choice it is sent directly to your email account. So you do not need to jump in your car and spend time or money. Then you read through it and print out the pattern pieces you need to cut the fabric with. It is super easy!! Also with Sew Spoiled ebooks all of the pictures are in color. I have made sure that only bright and easy to see photos are used in my ebooks. Not to mention the free tech. support. If you have any trouble at all technology wise or pattern questions just email me and we will talk through it:) I have had a few customers also ask if a certain pattern can be larger or smaller. Ebooks are extremely flexible for your own needs. Just adjust the size of the printed pattern templates by the same percent
