|My Hot Hues Convertible Crossbody Fooler Bag|
It took a bit of coordination (and I guess there will always be hiccups), but I got the pattern out to my selected testers and they have now completed the tremendous work of creating their own versions of the Hot Hues Convertible Crossbody Fooler Bag!
So without further ado, may I present...
Sammi's BagSammi describes herself as a "noobie" and indicates that this was her first bag. Congrats! She made the chain strap version with two flaps, one that matches her corner trim, as well as a black one that matches the strap tabs.

Pat's BagPat Hansford of Art in Stitches made her test bag with a fabric strap option and went with summer-like shades of lime green... did you notice some of it's even vinyl?? And she also added a fabulous button to the front side as well.

Terri from Australia — who currently has no online presence (believe it or not) — created the following very elegant version of the Hot Hues bag with a fabric strap. This was her first project following a pattern so we are both happy to report that there were no issues! Yay!

A heartfelt thanks to each of my testers... I can now release the Hot Hues Convertible Crossbody Fooler Bag pattern, confident that others will be able to make similarly striking bags of their own. It's a bit surreal to me that a few short months ago, I was only imagining the thought of designing a bag that others would want to make. To see the results and to get the positive feedback is a phenomenal feeling! I am both humbled and over the moon. Thanks again Sammi, Pat and Terri!
