my city Cooper bag

UPDATE 1/28/14: Thanks to all of your support, I won the satchel/pannier category in the Cooper bag contest! My prize is $100 at Hart’s Fabric in Santa Cruz which calls for road trip, right? Yeah!

My first sew along & contest!
COOPERSEWALONG
I’ve been a sewing blog lurker for so long…time to get some skin in the game! This sew along was hosted by Colette Patterns who designed this awesome bag pattern. I’m so thankful for the effort and creativity that these independent pattern companies have poured into their craft. Their work has not only motivated many folks like myself to get excited about sewing again, but has inspired a whole new community of makers. Kudos to them for bringing a contemporary spin to a traditional craft!

Ok, we went a little bezerk with the photography (thanks Nate!)
