Pattern Overview

My pile of Juliettes (+ giveaway)

I sewed up a pile of Juliettes the last few months. I did not think of that crazy idea myself, but I started to like it along the way.

I made a little purse for a colleague. Than the question came to make "a few more" for first aid supplies on field trips. Hmm ... I wanted to give it a go if it was not too urgent. Sometimes it's better to just say "no". But If you say yes : too late to back out.

I started from "Juliette", a pattern from the Dutch Sewing book "Mijn Tas".
Actually I made my inner bag in the large version and the outer bag in small.
Sleep deprivation will do that to your sewing. On the bright side: I ended up with 2 purses ;-)

My colleague added a few more remarks for me to adapt the pattern.
Ready for some assembly line sewing:

For variation I played with different topstitching and colors. That turned a few "boring" pieces of fabric like the scraps of Birch stripes into my favorite playfull purses.

I used fabrics that were not tied to a project yet (because I got them as a gift) and scraps from my ever growing leftover bin. Some fabrics come with memories attached: the first dress (flamingos) and the first skirt (pink flowers) for my daughter, the baby blanket for my nephew (owls) ...

Are you wondering about the give-away?
Well ... you reached it !
