A Quick Magazine Update

Whilst I was scouring the library(newsagent) last week I noticed this magazine.
I must admit I didn't think the cover was particularly enticing, however I did flick through it and it had a couple of patterns that I didn't mind.
Remember this gorgeous soft pouch that was made for me by the very talented Janet.
The pattern is in this magazine.
This pouch is one of the best pouches I have been lucky enough to receive. It sits just perfectly and you can see everything inside at a glance and its very roomy also.

I also loved these little bags ( One can never have too many pouches and bags ) They make great presents and don't take too much fabric or time to construct.

If you need anymore information or have trouble finding this magazine drop me a mail and I'll see if I can help.
Happy scouring

Wow! Those are both great bags! Thanks for the resource.

Thats funny how you managed to find that one Jean. You can't have too many pouches or bags but I have to admit this one is my all time favourite for all those reasons you mentioned.

I would love to buy this magazine in the US. Any ideas where I might look? Thanks. The bags patterns are great.

I love that bag that janet made you, yes I would love one too, having the pattern to make it would be wonderful.
Let me see if I can find the magazine here.
Thanks!

After Janet wrote about these patterns, I found several inexpensive, used copies of the book she mentioned available through Amazon. US readers might find it less expensive to buy the book...which I did!
Thanks for reminding me of them. I do want to make a couple of these.

Cathy said...

I have the book too (can't remember the name off the top of my head will have to look it up). I'm so glad to hear you are better again xo

Very pretty bag that Janet made for you....lucky girl. I love bags, but my only problem is I always have to buy scissors and needles and thimbles to go in each one...

I love the bags - where do I find this magazine in the US?

Carrie said...

Add me to the list of "where can I get one?"

I am in the US but would happily pay shipping if the only place I can find one is in New Zealand. :)

I just happen to read your blog today after reading Alma's blog . I love how your covered box turned out! Then I read down and saw the cute pouch. Do you think this magazine would still be available anywhere?
