So yes, I have been busy re-vamping the Snazzy Slouch pattern to bring it into line with my newer patterns. So, like my newer patterns, it will have BOTH the cutting measurements (where possible) AND pattern pieces provided.

PLUS it will now have a Table of Contents and check boxes to make following your cutting instructions easier. I’ve also made a few other small corrections/improvements to the pattern.

AND of course, I’ve made it up in some nice new fabrics! Here is one of them, the new cover bag:


You’ve just got to love these great Tula Pink fabrics!

The Snazzy Slouch is being re-tested right NOW and is will be re-released early next week when I will show you some beaut testers photos! To be notified when this happens, please subscribe to my newsletter. The link is in the footer of every page of my website – HINT: Doing so will also get you a 20% discount code for the newly revamped pattern, in my new shop! 😉

PLUS the good news is, if you have purchased the pattern this month, via my new shopping cart, you will automatically have access to download the new version of the pattern FREE. Too easy!

PLUS, if you have purchased the pattern previously AND have an account on my new website (Yes, you can make one just for this) and can provide me with proof of purchase, I will give you a copy of the new version FREE! 🙂

Remember by registering you will never lose a pattern again as you can just log back in and retrieve your patterns purchased via the new site, at any time! PLUS you will always have access to the latest versions. Handy, given that I will be busy revamping a few more of them! 😉

Here is an interior shot:


Do you know what? There is ONE thing I REALLY love about revamping a old pattern as opposed to creating a new one…..Can YOU guess what it is??

  1. I’m not going with naming, because you usually post a contest for us to name a new bag…I’ll say getting to carry a new bag! That’s my favorite part anyways.

  2. I’m pretty new at getting to know you, but that is one of the first things I read from you. NAMING THE BAG. Lol

  3. Complain? Do you complain? I am too busy drooling over the great bags to notice. But you did say that you count on your daughter to name your creations as coming up with names isn’t your thing.

  4. I’m with lots of other people and think it’s picking a name for the patterns. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  5. Adding/improving features is easier than making a whole new design. You already have a good product, refining it is even better.

  6. Naming is not something you like, so I would think your favorite part about revamping an old bag is not having to think of a new name.

  7. Coming up with a name for your new pattern … I know you love to make the patterns so this is all I could come up with …

  8. I’m gonna be the oddball and answer with not having to start a format from scratch whilst revamping a pattern!

  9. Oh my…can’t think of something that harsh. Maybe that new patterns don’t become available as often as I’d like them to be 🙂

  10. I would guess it would be taking the photos, because that’s the part that would drive me batty….

  11. I think you love everything about making bag patterns because it shows in the quality of your work.

  12. I think writing the directions so they make sense would be a hard part…..after naming the bag lol!

  13. I haven’t been following you very long as I’ve only just found you online, but I would imagine that the best thing about re-vamping a pattern would be that you get to update mistakes(that might have happened inadvertently) and photos etc that might need to be? 🙂

    Apologies if this has duplicated, but it didn’t publish and I’m not sure if you moderate comments? 🙂

  15. I would imagine that one of the ‘most’ important things would be to give the new/revamped bag a name and personality of its own. Correcting the things that didn’t go ‘just right’ in the 1st version would be an accomplishment. By redoing an area or item of the bg, you can create a very similar bag with a very different purpose. i.e. depending on the design, a bag could go from a ‘baby bag’ in one version to a ‘market bag’ in another version with changes. The thrill of being able to add yet another bag to our growing collection of outstanding bags is ohhhh so very important. (Not so much to hubby).
    OK, so I could go on, but, I think you get the idea of where I’m going with this.
