Well, Punkin Patterns is now officially in print. The German kids magazine Kleinformat has published the tutorial for making Connor’s Messenger Bag. I just got my copy in the mail yesterday!
It was really exciting. Ok, I’ve been in print before. First a short story in a book when I was in high school (which was cool, because you could actually buy the book at Barnes and Noble), then journal articles in college and graduate school, but I doubt you’re the sort interested in articles published in the Journal of Chemical Physics . . . . am I right??
Anyhow….. still cool. It impressed my husband.
This actually came at the perfect time. I’ll be teaching a class on making this bag at Sewtropolis this Wednesday. Anyone in the Twin Cities area interested here’s where you can find the details. I’ll also be teaching a class for the Sweet Tooth Pouch on the 21st – more details here.
Well, the weather is gorgeous here. I’m off to fold my laundry (next to some open windows) and work on a quilt later tonight when the kiddos have gone to bed.
That IS totally cool.
And don’t discount those of us who sew who are chem/phys/all-things-scinece nerds 🙂
Congratulations! This is so wonderful.
You rock, girl! This is really awesome! And please talk more about your work in chemical physics, as a medicinical chemist, I would find it very interesting 😀 /Angelica
I just finished Connor’s messenger bag yesterday. I reciently discovered your page from a search for messenger bags on oneprettything.com Your pattern was exactly what I was looking for my son. It was really easy and turned out great. He will be using it this weekend at his uncle’s wedding. They wanted him to drop leaves as he goes down the asile (so would that make him “Leaf Boy” instead of flower girl? Hmm, not sure) So I went in search of something a little less girly than a basket. This will be perfect. Thanks Lindsi
That is awesome. Congrats!
