February was a busy and exciting month around here at Andrie Designs! Check out our round-up below to see all that we got up to!
Last month we launched the Layla Essentials Purse – our ‘Miss February’ for the Rising Stars season for the Bag of the Month Club!! We were SO excited and honoured to be invited to participate in this season of the club last year, and it felt like it was quite the wait to get to February and FINALLY be able to show you our darling little purse, Miss Layla. Check out the Pattern Inspiration post today to see what our testers created!
The first one we brought to you is a simplified version of Layla. We were asked a few times how to make it more masculine so we shared with you one option. PLUS, we share how to turn the purse along the outer seam instead of the zipper pocket! Check out Layla Made Easy today!
The second hack was highly requested by numerous Bag of the Month Club members so we thought we would share how to add a simple coin pouch to the middle of your purse! Make sure you read all the way through this one so you catch all the tips and tricks! Check out the Layla Coin Pouch hack today!
We released another free video tutorial for you and this one is all about both installing AND attaching rectangular rings! With so many variations on how to attach them to bags, this video shows just a few of our favourites but will give you some great tips and tricks on how to install them securely and accurately, each and every time. Head on over to check out the video today!
With the launch of the Layla Essentials Purse, we thought we would feature her for February’s edition of Customer Creations! This post is jam-packed with pretty purses so hop on over to the Customer Creations post to be inspired by your fellow bag makers!
Lisa shared some fun behind-the-scenes shots and even a couple of Instagram Stories on Instagram in February. Make sure you’re following @andriedesigns so you never miss a post or story!

When the beginning and end of your triple top stitch falls in the EXACT same needle hole… 🥳😲💃🏼🙌🎉👌⠀ ⠀ (Though, I doubt I could have planned that if I’d tried! 😂)⠀ ⠀ Have you had an instance like this recently, where the stars aligned and it all just worked out perfectly?
