PC Bag quilt pattern

Today I started on a new bag - a practical bag/purse for travelling.  Maybe I manage to finish it tomorrow.  Then I have to start writing on the pattern - in Norwegian and in English language.  That's a big job, because it's not so easy to illustrate and describe it so the sewer can understand what to do.  So maybe some times during Sunday/Monday the pattern will be published.

I consider to translate some older patterns of bags and purses - first of all this PC Bag.  It fits a Laptop measuring 17".  I sew three.  The bright and the black are sold years ago, but the red one I use when I travel.  It matches my red suitcase.

So check out Scandinavian Quilt Pattern during the Week End if you are interested in bying this e-pattern.

Summer Angles - New pattern

It' still Winter up in the North Norway were I live and we're longing for the spring to come.  It helps with some brighter fabrics and interior.

This pattern was made 7 years ago.  It was published in Norwegian language.  Now I've translated it into English.

It's a table runner with stitchery - cute and lively girls enjoying the summer.

The pattern is available as a PDF for download on Scandinavian Quilt Pattern or on Etsy.

I'm now thinking of what should be my next pattern to translate.  Should it be a bag, a purse, a table runner or what?  Do you have any idea/wish - send med an e-mail or leave a comment.

The Scandinavian style is characterized by clean lines and essential bright color palettes - Nordic expression.

My patterns are inspired by Scandinavian style in fashion, furnishing and decor. 
It’s also inspired by several Scandinavian designers as you can see in some of the pictures.

I’m living in a functionalist house and some of my patterns are designed to fit in to this evironment. The patterns therefore have a kind of minimalist style.

In this issue you'll find several interesting Scandinavian designs:
