Introducing TWO New Patterns!

I'm so happy to introduce the two newest patterns from Jo-Lydia's Attic, making their debut at International Quilt Market next week. I've spent the past two weeks finalizing the patterns and opening my online shop so now you can order and pay for my patterns online--no more snail mail required. Visit to see all of my current offerings, including some fun quilt and placemat patterns.

The Sew ’N’ Go Hip Bag...For Safe Travel & Shopping!

It’s a hip little bag on an adjustable belt, designed for safe travel and shopping and it's a great alternative to a handbag; wear as a small shoulder sling, too.

Tuck in your eyeglasses, ID, money, and other small items for hands-free comfort and safety.
Stitch up a wardrobe of these bags in your favorite prints. The bag works great in fashion fabrics, too. Think silk, suede--even velvet! It’s lovely in solid colors too for a more sophisticated look!

I love my pink one in pink silk duppioni, but the printed one will work great with all the pink and black outfits in my combination. I can't wait to use them at Quilt Market in Minneapolis next week.

FEATURES include:
* Pleated front expands for your necessities.
* Flat back hugs the body.

* Hidden zipper closure keeps everything safe inside.

* Ten-page pattern includes full-size pattern pieces to trace.

* Illustrated assembly directions are easy to follow.

* Make a Hip Bag in two hours or less.

The Quilted Workbag...
was inspired by a vintage sewing bag. It’s a roomy shoulder tote, perfect for your embroidery, quilting, sewing, knitting, or crochet projects. It's a wonderful soft bag that you can use for your everyday purse or tote, too.


* Inside hanging pockets for eyeglasses, cell phone, cosmetics, and more!
* How to quilt your own double-sided fabric for the bag shown
* Instructions for making a soft lined bag, too.
* Use quilting cottons or decorator fabrics.
* For a dress-up bag, choose silks or other fashion fabrics.
