Heavy Hauler Tote Bag

Heavy Hauler Tote Bag - Pattern Inspiration - Andrie Designs

I felt it was time to create a bag with a different type of hardware and came to find myself pondering the possibilities of the internal wire frames by Emmaline Bags… After much pondering, and a few trials of different designs, I arrived at the Heavy Hauler Tote Bag. The frames help provide a beautifully […]

Goin’ Uptown Tote

Goin' Uptown Tote - Pattern Inspiration - Andrie Designs

I needed a bigger shopping bag. There, I said it. And for some crazy reason, I decided to design my own… (I think I’m a bit fussy, LOL!). I knew what I wanted – it needed to be a good size, hold a fair amount of things without looking big and bulky on my shoulder, […]

Super Drawstring Pouch

Super Drawstring Pouch - Pattern Inspiration - Andrie Designs

A little while ago (ok, over a year ago), my darling daughter asked for a rainbow-themed birthday party.
