The Pocket Tote // Pattern Review

This week I will be sharing some pictures with links to a few pattern reviews. Before QuiltCon my very talented sister, Sherrana made a few samples of patterns I sell in my shop. She has written reviews for these patterns on her blog at Needles and Nails.

Meet Sherrana

Sherrana builds creations from reclaimed pallet wood, sews many gifts, and likes to make handmade cards and other crafts. Some of her creations are available for sale in her Etsy shop.


The Pocket Tote

The second project Sherrana made was the Pocket Tote by Jen Fox Studios. It was made using with dark denim, Mustang in Metallic Olive, and Triangle Tokens in Metallic. Learn more about the bag and the pattern over at Needles and Nails
