Quilty Penelope Bag

Hello sewing friends. I get to be the guest designer this month for Patchwork Posse's online Quilt Guild and I'm so excited to share with you the project I've created for it.  I've added a little "quilty" flare to my Penelope handbag and turned it into a PDF pattern to share. Introducing the Quilty Penelope Bag.

The handbag has a Variable star built into the side panels, giving it a pop of color and a cute way to show off your love of quilting. The star panel is great for using up some of your scraps or for playing around with your new favorite fabrics. You can also substitute an 8”, or larger, orphan block to the center panel for a completely different look.



 The Quilty Penelope Bag is perfect for carrying all your essentials, plus a few extras. It’s small enough that it won’t weigh down your shoulder, but roomy enough to hold what you need. 

There are pockets on the inside and a simple magnetic snap closure. The comfortable fabric strap stays on your shoulder and easily slips on with one hand. 

This pattern is written exclusively for Patchwork Posse's online Quilt Guild. Are you a member yet? You may want to consider joining. Not just for my pattern but for access to all the other exclusive patterns, tutorials, Block-of-the-Months, and giveaways that come along with membership. 
There's also a facebook group where you can show of your projects and get feedback and fun swaps you can participate in. It's just like being part of a local quilt group but with the convenience of your own schedule. You'll find all the details about how to join on the Quilt Guild Info Page 
You can read more about me and my project on the Guest Designer page. Sign up and download my Quilty Penelope Bag pattern and let me know what you think.
Happy Sewing!

Don’t miss an opportunity to try the local cuisine, whether it be sitting down to a formal banquet or squatting around a communal bowl of rice and meat w ith a Bedouin family in their desert tent. Alternatively, Western food is easy to find in the larger towns.

    The capital, Amman, is a modem, surprisingly cosmopolitan city built on many small hills or jebels. It is home to good museums. art galleries,Cheap Jordan Shoes, a wonderful amphitheatre. friendly locals, some excellent hotels and restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife if you know where to look.

    Aqaba is Jordan’s resort town, much visited by Jordanians and Saudis, and offers the country’s only diving and snorkelling sites and swimming beaches. Other attractions are the ancient ruined cities of Jcrash and Umm Qais and the windswept desert castles of the east, w hile the incredible red sandy jebels of Wadi Rum and plunging canyons of Dana Nature Reserve alw ays impress. The IX*ad Sea is the lowest point on earth, and swimming - or more correctly,country in the region. It has until recently had one leader for over 45 years; Islamic extremism and militancy arc extremely rare.

    Many people come to Jordan on a side trip from Israel - through one of three open borders - or as a stopover along a fascinating jaunt between Turkey and Egypt, via Syria. But Jordan is simple to reach from Europe by air, and with connecting flights from the USA. Canada. Australia and New Zealand now easier to arrange,Retro Jordans, it's never been a better time to visit. Jordan is certainly worth an exclusive trip; it’s definitely worth more than the few days most travellers allow.
