Cooper Carry-All Show & Tell April 05 2013, 0 Comments


We are lucky to be surrounded by amazingly talented sewists.  We rely on these great family and friends to test our patterns before we unleash them onto the public =]. We gave the Cooper Carry-All to our grandma/mom, Mary Ellen (or as I call her: Mama) and our good friend Juli.  A few little corrections and tips later, these are the beautiful bags they created!

This is side one of Juli's Cooper Carry-All! We love the bright springy colors! It is finally starting to feel like Spring here in Colorado! I hope I didn't just jinx it! We will see if snows in a few days =]

Here is side two of Juli's bag. She used Owlivia from Benartex and bright coordinating scraps. The fun prints sit on a solid aqua background.

This Mama's bag! She used Simple Marks by Malka Dubrawsky for Moda. The solid pieces along the outside sit on a fun print. (Opposite of Juli's!) This bag has so many different opportunities! In fact... I am making another one =] Some of it is shown in the Stitch and Flip Tutorial. I will show you the whole thing when I get it finished!

Big thank you to Juli and Mama! This pattern wouldn't be out without them! 

If you make this pattern or any other of our Sassafras Lane Designs patterns, send us an email! ( We would love to feature you and the bag or quilt on here!
