Lila's Art Bag and more

18 Jun 2011

Thanks for all of the kind words about our studio 5 spot.  It is always interesting to try something new.  I have had many requests for the art bag pattern that I showed using Lila Tueller's new line Lola's Posies.  The bag is also designed by Lila Tueller and the pattern is called Deluxe bags and it will be available in just a few weeks. It includes patterns for the art kit, computer case, and a few cosmetic cases in different sizes.  These bags are great projects for using laminates. Here is the art bag.
