October was an incredibly busy month around here at Andrie Designs. We were knee deep in Quilt Market prep on top of pattern releases, blogs posts and so much more! Have a look below at what we did and the latest shared creations!
Pattern Launch – Peekaboo Purse
Originally released as the Tilda Club pattern for the Australian distributor 2 Green Zebras, the long-awaited pattern, the Peekaboo Purse was released! The Peekaboo Purse is a darling little shoulder purse featuring a pieced flap, which has been designed to show off a favourite fabric in a ‘peekaboo’ type fashion. Head to the release post to see all the tester photos and be inspired!
Free Video Tutorial
In the latest free video tutorial, Lisa teaches us how to assemble her pattern pieces and tips to get everything to line up in grid formatted pieces. Check out the video on the Andrie Designs YouTube channel today!
For October we asked to see your latest tote bag creations! You shared so many gorgeous ones in the Andrie Designs Patterns Facebook Group and we rounded them up in the October edition of Customer Creations! Be sure to check it out and be inspired by your fellow bag makers!
Sewing Difficult Fabrics Part 2
We launched the second part of our series about sewing difficult and unique fabrics. This time we covered cork, canvas, strap webbing and a few others. (I’m most excited to create bags with that beautiful rose gold cork!) Check out Sewing Difficult Fabrics Part 2 today if you are venturing into new materials!

You know the stars are most definitely aligned when you run into a colleague (who lives about a 22 hour drive away from you!!), completely unexpectedly, at a large tourist destination campground over the weekend!!! 😲😍 . It was SO awesome to meet you in person Louise @louiseradge @radgedesign after working together all this time!! Enjoy the rest of your trip! 😘😘😘
