Jasmine Sling Bag

I got to test the sling bag pattern released by Namratha of Bagstock sewing patterns.It is always a pleasure to test for her … She is such a  sweet heart and so is her work. She is one amongst the pattern designers whose instructions are very clear,easily understandable and loads of pictures to make sure your working right .This sling bag is one amongst her four patterns.

There are 2 versions of the Jasmine Sling Bag.

Unique zippered flap version and Vertical zipper version.

Zippered flap version (which i tried ) comes with  an interior zipper pocket, zipper closure, adjustable strap, front slip pocket and zippered flap to keep little things like cards/coins/keys/lip balm handy.

Saddle Bag and a Mini Wallet

This particular set I got to do for my Younger son’s Preschool Teacher .Though its just 4 months he spent with her, its not a single day my son asks and talks about her .A very kind-hearted ,understanding person.I just adore the way she handled my son turning him from being naughty to being patiently hear whatever we say and answer us back.

Hardly,he could speak a few words when he started his class with her.Gradually his skills got developed and now we find it very difficult to stop him from talking :)So when I was thinking about gifting something for this Special person I planned to make a saddle bag and a mini wallet .Here you go with the pictures ..
