Summer Lovin’ Beach Tote

Summer Lovin' Beach Tote - Andrie Designs

Late last year, one of my darling customers asked me if I had a beach bag pattern to which I had to answer ‘No, I don’t!’… ? It got me thinking though and it wasn’t long before an idea popped into my head. After a few consultations with a very important group of people (aka […]

Little Freehand Pack

Little Freehand Pack - Pattern Inspiration - Andrie Designs

The story behind this pattern is one that is very close to my heart… My wonderful Dad – someone who never asks me for anything – asked me to design him a bag. Not just any bag, he wanted something small and compact, that he could wear around his waist while working in the bush […]

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. Being the excited, super-organised mum that I am, I made her and all her friends rainbow drawstring pouches to carry their rainbow-themed goodies around in as they carried out their rainbow-themed treasure hunt! It was a heap […]
