Yes I"ve been busy this summer! Had a brief break from quilting and took a wonderful week long trip to NYC with my best friend from Australia, and her childhood friend. We had a BLAST!
Of course we went to the garment district and Mood! And the City Quilter!
And had afternoon tea at the Plaza! It was a great week.
When I got home I started a new project I have been wanting to make. I made 4 Sew Together bags and was just finishing them up when I came across the instructions for the Bionic Gear Bag. Needless to say I had to make 2 more of the Bionic Gear Bag! I loved the enhancements and changes Ripstitcher put in the Bionic Gear Bag. It was well worth buying the 2nd pattern!
While at a glance you may think they are the same pattern - they are NOT. The Bionic Gear Bag has so many changes, that make it an even better bag. I'm not interested in comments about who made the pattern first, or what constitutes enough changes to be a new pattern. I will be deleting any comments about that. The 2 designers have had conversations and its the past. (Enough said). And I did buy both patterns. But I have to admit - I'm a bionic gear bag fan.
Here are my Sew Together Bags. (ok so the pics of the first one I was "almost" done with it!)
And here is the bionic gear bag I have done. I'm starting the second one this weekend. If you want to see some of the great changes in the bionic gear bag watch this You Tube video!
And here is the one I"ve got finished! Already given to the owner.... now to get mine made!
