Navy and Gold Handmade Bag + Bag Patterns Giveaway

Navy blue and gold handmade bag.
I finished making my navy and gold bag last weekend. Not as timely as I was originally planning, but I took it with me to the conference closing day, so that's good enough.  I didn't follow a pattern for this bag - I kind of made it up as I went a long. As a result it's got flaws character, but overall, I'm pleased with the result.  I basically pieced the fabric rectangles into 2 15" 18" sides and then quilted them using a layer of Pellon's Peltex Ultra Firm that I got at JoAnn's and a layer of cotton/poly batting. From there I used a basic tote concept to square the bottoms with gussets and add the straps.
Windham farbrics recently sent me a sample pack of the canvas prints from Lotta Jansdotters' newest collection called Glimma. I used some of the same pieces in the bag exterior. I asked them if I could use the gorgeous gold stripe canvas for my bag and they kindly sent me some yardage. I love the way the canvas gives extra body and durability to the lining and the bag straps. The pocket fabric is some of Lori Holt's Aunt Millie's Closet yardage that I'd bought a while back. You can find the Glimma collection here, here, and here.
Other prints include Indie Chic by Riley Blake, Pearl Bracelts by Lizzy House for Andover, and some Dear Stella Zig Zag.  
I'm so in love with the navy and gold color scheme that is popular right now. I've always been a fan of navy blue - maybe becuase I was raised on navy blue - so I love seeing it make a comeback.
Seeing as I'm NOT a great resource for bag-making (maybe some day!) let me point you in the direction of someone who is. Have you met Sara Lawson? I took a class from her last fall at the Sewing Summit  about making bags. (Don't you love that patchwork bag she made?) She gave us samples of all kind of Pellon products (interfacing, etc.) and explained how she uses them. I took notes right on the samples. It was SO helpful!
Sew Sweetness
Sara has a great blog called Sew Sweetness full of helpful bag-making wisdom and tutorials including this VERY helpful explanation of handmade bag interfacing options.
She also has some fantastic bag patterns in her shop and she has generously offered to giveaway 3 patterns to 3 lucky winners! If you would like to win a collection of Sara's patterns, just leave a comment on this post. If you want, pop over to Sara's shop and come back and tell me which bag is your favorite. I warn you, it will be hard to choose! Giveaway open until Thursday, April 25 at midnight MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Winners: Heidi [Grizz-n-Dove]April 22, 2013 at 2:41 PM

Locked and Loaded. Thanks! P.S. I have actually pulled up her blog while standing in front of the interfacing at JoAnn. So helpful!! P.P.S. Your bag is awesome. I think we're about the same age, and I have been waiting for navy's comeback too. I love dark blues.

Beautiful bag, Amy...love the navy and gold. I also love Sara's Dot dot dash bag...such a talented lady :)

Harrysmum said...

I wish we could get the same wide range of interfacings in the UK - it seems to be stiff or floppy in my local shop and that's it!
I love the Aeroplane bag - such a useful shape and size!

Fiesta said...

I love the dot dot dash! Thank you for the chance

Anna said...

I love all of Sara's patterns! I made a velocity girl bag already, but would love to try locked and loaded as well! Thanks!

JoNell said...

Locked and loaded would be my choice. Thanks for the giveaway.

PippaP said...

I've just finished the aeroplane bag and would love to try soda pop next

Esch House Quilts said...

I love navy too - although I'm sort of conditioned not to pair it with gold because, around here, then all anyone thinks about is that you must be a University of Michigan fan. It isn't that I dislike UM in any way, but I'm not enough of a sports fan to wear a teams colors all the time :) I'll be pairing my navy with a nice spring green.

scrosske said...

This bag looks like it would fit in perfectly here :) http://bostonmqg.blogspot.com/2013/04/quilts-for-boston.html

Amanda K said...

I really want to try the Aeroplane bag.

Thanks!

Lisa Marie said...

I've admired Sara's bags for a while now. Current favorite is the Accordion Bag. I mostly do bags like you -- make it up as I go along! Maybe I should try a well written pattern.

joanold said...

I really like the look of the Locked and Loaded bag.

Mara Cockman said...

Love the velocity girl bag.

beth said...

I love the Locked and Loaded bag and Petrillo bag!

Unknown said...

Those are so cute! I really need to make a new bag to tote all the kid stuff to church! --wornoutballetshoes@gmail.com

beth said...

Sorry - forgot to add my favorite Sara bag - the aeroplane!! Also, is the navy blue 'blueberry' or 'slate' (I assume blueberry?). Thanks!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

You are right, it IS hard to pick a favorite. But I loved Paparazzi, maybe the color choice. But they are all so cute.

Missy Shay said...

I think I like the accordion bag best!

If I had to pick one I would choose the petrillo bag. They're all really cute

nancy l. said...

I love this bag!!! The colors together are gorgeous!! I would love to try either the Petrillo Bag or the Aeroplane Bag. I think something girly is just what is needed in my all male (besides me) household!! At least that way I'd know where to find it when I want it. : )

Teresa said...

I love her handbag patterns - my favorite now is the Aeroplane bag - thanks for the giveaway.

Rachelle said...

I love the Locked and Loaded bag.

Erin said...

OOH - tough choices indeed! I think I would love to make the Locked and Loaded Bag. I LOVE making bags for myself and others. I usually make myself a new bag/pattern for my birthday (which is next week... I better get sewing soon!) Thanks for the opportunity - I will have to check out her site about different interfacings to use. I have found that over the years they have changed, and some that I loved (fusible fleece, for example)are not as sturdy as they once were.

Rachel Booth said...

:) I love the Paparazie Bag! :) I'd love to win some patterns!! :) Love the selection of fabrics you used! :)

Allison said...

Very cute bag~ I love the navy and gold! And you weren't kidding about getting lost on Sara's site. :-) I really like her aeroplane bags. But they are all wonderful! Thanks for the chance!

JoyceLM said...

Love your bag. Locked and Loaded is my favorite of Sara's patterns. Thanks.

Erica said...

I like the Soda Pop bag! And, I think your navy and gold bag came out great.

JaneB said...

I think my favorite is Dot Dot Dash. I've been looking for a bag pattern that has a slim, tall shape with a zip closure. I agree about Navy Blue, this is a classic color that should never go out of style.

Danih03 said...

You did a great job on your bag! It's hard to pick between Sara's bags! It's a toss up between the Dot-Dot Dash bag and the Soda Pop bag!

Janarama said...

I'm loving the Aeroplane Bag. Your bag turned out great!

Kathy said...

I would love to make the Paparazzi bag, thanks for the chance!

Pam said...

I love the Aeroplane Bag! Love the color and style of your tote bag! I am going to check out the interfacing information. It is challenging to pick the right one!

June D said...

Oh my gosh what good timing! I was just shopping with a new friend who let it be known how much she likes fabric bags and said she'd like to make one with me! I don't know which pattern she will pick, but I'm leaning toward the Aeroplane Bags - I like the idea of making my own weekend bag! I'd learn a lot by making the useful camera bag, and the Petrillo Bag would be a handy all in one way to carry my iPad... I really can't choose. Thank you for putting my name in the hat for the drawing.

Clare said...

I love your bag, navy is so classic.
I'd love the Petrillo Bag pattern it would fit all my mummy stuff!

Deborah said...

I love the aeroplane bag! But need to practice making some more basic totes first I think!

velocity girl bag
This would be a lovely bag to make for my traveling companions.

Tricia said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I love the Soda Pop bag pattern.

Hard to choose. I like the Velocity Girl Bag. Making a bag is on my list of "do's and try's". Velocity looks like an easier one for my first attempt. :) Love how your bag came out. So darling!

Steven and Ginger said...

love the locked and loaded bag. Way cute.

Amy Farrington said...

I have been in handbag mode lately! Her site will be very helpful, thank you for sharing!

thisissogood said...

I love your bag! Like them all, but the Petrillo Bag looks fun!

Martha said...

Your bag is wonderful. I agree, the combination of navy blue and gold is always very classic and stiking. You are so right - hard to choose just one bag from their fabulous collection, but I would have to go with the Aeroplane bags.

Jennifer said...

What a great giveaway! I love the Aeroplane Bag. Thanks for the chance.

Amanda said...

The soda pop bag is my favorite! Aeroplane is second.

I made a bag for my cousin in Texas (I'm from Ontario, Canada) and she said she has gotten ssoooo many compliments on it. Handmade certainly is the best :-)

Donna said...

Your bag is adorable! As for the patterns, I love Velocity Girl! All the pockets make it a winner! Thanks for the giveaway.

Sally said...

I took a peak at Sara's shop and fell in love with the Locked and Loaded bag. There is just something about the shape of the bag that really appeals to me. Thanks for directing us to her site. I am a novice at bag making and look forward to her wise words about bag interfacing and etc.

Colleen said...

Love, love, love your bag!!! Just my style and color!! Great job :)

Soda Pop is my favorite from Sara's shop.

I'd love to try my hand at making a bag.

Thanks for sharing such a great resource for fun bag patterns.

I really like her new pattern, the Soda Pop Bag. And I'm like you about navy, it's one of my favorites despite having to wear it as part of my high school uniform for four years (navy blue bottoms w/wo navy sweaters and white blouses). Thanks for the give away!

Nena said...

I think I pick Soda Pop Bag! Thanks!

Jess said...

My favorite is a tie between the Aeroplane bag and the Petrillo bag. Thanks!

Brooke Boon said...

I think the Soda Pop bag...it would make a great "day at the park" tote!

brookeali(at)Hotmail.com

Kathy Sue said...

You're right, choosing only one is difficult. I like both "Locked and Loaded" and "Paparazzi". If I have to pick only one I think it would be "Paparazzi".

sillytiger said...

Those are all beautiful bags! I think I like the Aeroplane bag best--how useful for traveling!

Thanks for the great giveaway! :)

Alyssa said...

It looks above my skill level, but I love the petrillo bag!

Karen said...

This is such a timely post because I have been looking at bag patterns for some great pre-quilted fabric I have bought recently. You're right about the tough decision, but I think the Aeroplane Bag and the Paparazzi Bags are the best fits for my current wishes.

Madeleine said...

I just bought the Aeroplane bag and I love all her patterns. I would choose the soda pop, paparazzi and locked and loaded. Thanks for the chance to win it. By the way, I love your navy and gold combination! Great bag!

aiah23 said...

I think the petrillo bag is my favorite!

Fawn

LynneP said...

I have been sewing for many years but haven't made bags. It would be wonderful to win a set of patterns to try. Thank you!

Amanda Cook said...

I love making bags and LOVE the Soda Pop bag you're showing on your blog, but it was a difficult choice to make.

Robin (noteverstill/noteversewing) said...

I'm in love with the Aeroplane!

SewSealy said...

How does one choose their favorite between all those wonderful bags. Tough decisions, but since I must choose one, I think the Dot Dash Bag is pretty cool with the three zippers down the front. Too cute!
Khauglan (at) yahoo dot com

Linda said...

They are all great bags...I think my first favorite would be the Locked and Loaded. Thank you for the chance to win a pattern.

I love love love the Caliti Convertible Clutch!!!

Ramona said...

I like her aeroplane bag the best. Your bag turned out so cute.

Audrey said...

I liked the Locked and Loaded bag and I loved your navy and gold bag. Thanks for the chance to win a pattern!

Rebekah said...

Wow, your bag looks fantastic, Amy! I love the Glimma collection. And it does work really well with the navy you threw in there. I love bags, and making them also. Sadly, I never seem to keep them for myself! I don't think it was fair of you to ask us to choose just ONE of Sara's bags to like. They are all so deliciously good! But if I have to choose I think I might have to go with the Locked and Loaded bag. Very trendy!

Allison said...

I love how your bag turned out! I think of Sara's, the Soda Pop is my favorite.

jodie said...

Sara's Petrillo Bag is my favorite!

Tamie said...

I can't decide if my favorite is the Aeroplane bag or the Locked and Loaded bag.

Melissa said...

I love the Aeroplane Bag, super cute!!! :)

Carla G said...

Ok you were right it is hard to decide on one of the bags. Actually there were five I like best, well I like all of them but five really grabbed my eye's at first glance. The Accordion, Paper-Pieced Sunrise Clutch, Soda Pop, Locked & Loaded & the Paparazzi (camera)Bags. Today is the first time I've been on your site & I'm really enjoying it & look forward to getting to know you better through your blog. By the way your bag is very pretty. I love Navy Blue also. I do have a few questions for you. I have been wanting to start a blog of my own but I have Crohn's Disease & I never know how I'm going to feel. So my questions to you is do you have to write in it a certain day's of the week? And where do you get all of your ideas from? Like your tutorials do you make up all of your own patterns or how do you know what to write about? Plus where do you find time to read everyone's posts or answer their questions? Do you wish you had more free time to yourself & your family? I'm sure that I sound silly asking you all of these questions but I have always been the type to ask & I figure if it's to silly then it wont be answered. Thanks for your help, I truly appreciate your time.
