Jean, Linda & Cindy Sew & Share

I just finished this Meander Bag, a free (until the end of July) download pattern from Sew News magazine ( It’s basically a version of a fanny pack, but with shoulder issues I thought it might be good to have a bag that just goes around my waist. Except for the strapping & the slide adjuster, everything came from my stash - even the buckle.

I made the front of this bag from the Lil’ Twister tool with my own pattern. Adjustable Strap. Pocket for cell on the outside.

I made this cycling Jersey (note pockets in the back) from a $5 yard of fabric from All About Fabrics. Not a great color for me but it is wicking and bright to be seen on the road. The pattern is from Jamie:
Unusual construction and I really screwed up my practice top. Thought I knew more than the pattern writers. Anyway, the construction was magical. That’s all I can say.
