I’m so excited to share photos of my new pattern:
The Night Owl Bag Pattern Set
This bag pays homage to some of my favorite elementary school memories.
To Kristen and Chelle Hammer:
If you are out there reading, this bag is dedicated you…
To our all-night adventures, to nail polish and popcorn, notebook plans with diagrams, Old Maid and scary stories, tired parents and whole wheat pancakes.
This slumber party bag is for the next generation of Night Owls.
It’s nice and roomy.
Perfect for holding a pillow, blanket, pajamas and your favorite doll…
This pattern comes with a delightful owl pocket…
to keep your nail polish and toothbrush if you remember to brush.
His tummy is a clever smaller pocket too.
I’m also including an easy pattern for making a matching pillowcase.
Anybody ready for a Slumber Party?
This little Night Owl is ready for the party!
This pattern can be made in several hours… it’s easy and fun to make and is suitable for a seamstress with only a little experience. The .pdf pattern is 11 pages of step-by-step instructions and includes helpful diagrams and tips. Click here to check out a preview of the pattern.
