Introducing the Admiral Grace Pattern

After a lot of prototyping, and testing my first PDF Pattern has been launched. The Admiral Grace Tote is designed with sewing leather on a domestic machine in mind. The lining fabric peeks over the edge, adding a fun pop of contrast (this can be adjusted to a more traditional finish). The Diamond Strap Anchors made straps easy, with no need to worry about sewing over bulky straps.

The inspiration for the shape of this pattern came during a discussion with the admin team in the 2021 Bag Making challenge group on Facebook, and took on a life of its own
