Gemma©️ Bag Pattern Testers!

It’s been a busy few months for Lányos Handmade. Lots was accomplished. The Gemma© Bag was finished and released! It was great fun and now I am happy to share the Lányos Handmade Gemma© Bag Pattern with you, over at my new shop Lányos Handmade:

I want to introduce you to my wonderful team of Pattern Testers:

Anne @amcclure54 I met Anne on Instagram, Facebook and her blog. A meticulous tester, she was a real asset and a joy to talk to!

Anne cleverly made her Gemma Bag with a cheerful striped cotton. Even more cheerful was the polka dot lining for you polka dot lovers out there! Anne’s Gemma is just perfect for a sunny summer day!

Next we have Hélène @hportemanteau I know Hélène from Instagram. Hélène used an upholstery fabric from her stash. She took the extra steps with her Gemma and turned it into a backpack. I love it when someone takes my patterns to the next level – like these straps, or perhaps those rivets, or ? What do you want to do with your Gemma?

Now let’s look at Leah’s Gemma. @theladydeejay Leah used black twill, printed woven cotton and a lightweight denim for the lining. Leah and I spend our time chatting on Instagram and Facebook mostly. I’m just wild about Leah’s chicken print, and a bit envious that I have not found the same fabric through my usual suppliers yet! Leah took the opportunity to turn her slip pocket into a pen and notepaper holder.

I found Sarah on Instagram @sarahguthrie_stitches Sarah made her first Gemma Bag from a cotton print with blue cotton accents and her second with an elegant Cork fabric. I think I have seen this printed Cork fabric for sale on my supplier’s website. This print is a favourite of mine! Sarah told me she sees more Cork Gemma’s in her future. I can’t wait to see them!

So that’s the line up! Well along with the couple that I have posted about here and there!

Edit July 5, 2019 – The Gemma© Bag is now available in the shop, Lányos Handmade!

What kind of fabric are you going to use for your Gemma?

Happy Sewing!

STASH BUSTING WITH THIS PROJECT? None, actually. I purchased two sheets of Cork fabric (1/4 yard each) and used 3/4 of it. The lining was scrap busting fabric. I still have 131.2 meters left in my fabric stash … and a pair of jeans to sew up!

    1. Thank you kindly! Funny! I had one person ask me if there was a pattern, then I thought Well, why not? It was fun! I’ll be back with another new pattern in a month or so. I have another one almost drafted out! ☺️

      1. Fabulous!! You definitely have a talent for designing lovely handbags and I’d love to try my hand at sewing one of your designs once I get up the courage to try sewing something other than clothing!

        1. Thank you for your kind words! I always figure, when making bags, start with something simple … or start with a “muslin”, fabric that is inexpensive, at least, to get the idea of it. Happy sewing to you!

          1. You’re so welcome!
            Such great tips! Thank you!! 😀
