technique videos + patterns

Here are the patterns and tutorials for sewing your own versions of these gorgeous projects:

My creation

•The Vintage-Style iPod Cozy on page 203 by Natalie Zee Drieu — follow this link to download the PDF.

•The Circles in the Square Tote on page 204 by Sarah Place-Minshall — here’s a lovely photo tutorial for sewing the bag.

Of course, you can always embellish a bag you already have… but it’s nice to stitch up your very own original piece too!
