Editors' Favorite Bag Patterns
We asked the staff members of American Patchwork & Quilting and Quilts and More to choose a current bag pattern, make the bag, and share their thoughts about why they chose the pattern. See our version of each bag, then click on the next slide for information designer and pattern information.
The Trixie Bag
Flirty, fun, girly-girly, and frivolous is how editor Jill Abeloe Mead describes the Trixie Bag. “It is a big hit with my pre-teen granddaughters,” Jill says. “The bag is big enough to tote all their necessities (hair care products, books, iPod, and cell phone), and would be easy to personalize by the fabrics selected. Both of the girls chose their own fabric. Madison’s bag (the one shown here) is made from Michael Miller Fabrics polka dots. Madi’s birthday came first (she’s now a teenager)—she got the first bag. Devree’s is also made of Michael Miller Fabrics polka dots, this time in blues, greens, and black-and-white.”
