It's been a long time since our last Sew Along, but Stacy and I are back on track and are really excited! Amy Butler has just released 2 new FABULOUS patterns...

Mini Dress, Tunic & Tops
(includes girls sizing too!)

Field Bag & Tote

And guess what?! You get to choose which one you'd like to do for the sew-along! There's a little something for everyone - bag lovers, dress lovers, tunic lovers... and maybe you can whip something up for your favorite daughter / niece / grand-daughter / cutie-pie-next-door while you're at it :)

Want to join? Here's what you need to do:

(1) Join our FLICKR Group : click HERE
(2) Pick your pattern(s) and fabric (I have the patterns in my shop HERE) - use coupon code "monkey10" (without the "") at checkout for 10% off your whole order!
(3) Sew! (and please do leave us notes on Flickr with your updates, questions, etc. - these are new patterns for us too!)
(4) Post pictures of your creations by July 31

We'll pick a winner (with the random number generator) at the close of this Sew Along - the prize is yet to be determined, but we promise it'll be something "sew" fun!

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Dad Bag

When hubby takes Sydney or Ben out, he needs some minimal kid gear - snack, diaper, wipes, water. I got kind of tired of hearing "I'm NOT going out of the house with THAT!" (referring to a smaller / shorter version of the bag below):

(I love the front pouch to put my cell phone and keys!). So... I made him his own bag - a GUY bag :) And he loves it! No more complaints, and no more worries from me that the kids are going to be without the basics. He also uses it out on the boat to keep his phone, keys and camera dry.

In the spirit of Father's Day (next weekend!) I've posted 3 different camo bags in my ETSY shop, and they are on sale! I have a few of each and can ship the next day :)

I'd also like to carry a solid color bag - black / navy / brown - for guys who aren't into camo - would love your feedback as to which you think would work! Thanks! :) Have a wonderful weekend!
