Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge 2011- September’s Bag

I’m sure you all that are participating have already got your things ready for this bag, but, I need to post anyhow.

We will be making the BLOSSOM HANDBAG from Chapter 9.

Fabrics for BLOSSOM HANDBAG are the same if you choose to do the handbag or shoulder bag.  I don’t know which one I’ll do, probably the shoulder bag because I have a 4 yr old…


I’ll update with a photo of my fabric this weekend.




We will need some yards of 20″ wide FUSIBLE woven interfacing and FUSIBLE FLEECE.  The testers in the book used Shape Flex by Pellon SF-101, just make sure that it is fusible and intended for light to mid-weight fabrics.  I am in love with SF 101, that stuff is an interfacer’s dream!  We need Peltex #70 or something similar, a 12″ zipper, &  a 3/4″ magnetic snap.

You can purchase interfacing at your local shop that sells fabric.


Style Stitchers, this is what we need to do for September:

  • Select/order fabric and notions
  • Show us the fabric that you are using on the Flickr group page, if you desire
  • Cut out pattern pieces for BLOSSOM HANDBAG
  • Make bag following instructions from book
  • Ask questions if you have any (you may use the discussion board on our Flickr group)
  • Take pictures of your FRINGED HOBO BAG and upload them to the FLICKR GROUP.  Alternatively, you may e-mail them to me and I will upload them to Flickr.
  • Meet back here on 1 OCTOBER 2011 for details for the next bag and to see a few of the photo-submitted bags and find out who won gift certificates to this month’s sponsors:
  •  Above All Fabric ($25),
  •  Fat Quarter Shop ($50).



–BLOSSOM HANDBAG pictures must be submitted by 30 SEPTEMBER 2011 to be eligible for the gift certificate drawings.  The winners will be randomly selected.

–Once the winners are announced, the first person to respond gets to select the gift certificate that they want. I will give further instructions on the 1 OCTOBER 2011 post.
