Welcome to my blog!!!!
Here is where I'll post updates to my site, arlenesbags.com, my etsy shop and to post comments on my experiences, both hits & misses, with sewing patterns I have used. Finally, here in my little corner of the net, I have a place to shamelessly blather on & on about sewing .
The Abbey Bag in a Bag is the newest addition to Arlene's Bags. The Abbey Bag is literally a bag within a bag. The outside bag has 6 deep pockets and a rear zippered pocket. The inside has 2 elasticized pockets and 2 water bottle pockets.
The inside bag has a top inset zippered closure.
This multi-use bag is especially ideal as a small laptop bag, a diaper bag, a book bag or a general multi-use bag
With its adjustable straps the Abbey Bag in a Bag can be carried as a shoulder bag or converted to a backpack. Converting the bag to a backpack simply involves reclipping the swivel hook.
Instead of doing a holiday sale in my home as I have done for the last few years, this year I will be a vendor at the Carpenter Museum's Folk Art & Artisans Show which will be held at Francis Farm in Rehoboth, MA.
The sale will run from 4pm to 9pm on Friday, November 4, and continue on Saturday, November 5 from 9am to 4pm.
Arlene's Bags will be in the Miller Building at table #7.
I will be introducing several new bags, many of which are made in my newest fabrics.
Hope to see you next week!

The Tami Bag came about as a result of requests for a small bag that can also hold more than just a credit card and some keys.
Although the Tami Bag is small, I think it fits the bill for having a lot of space. It measures 9" wide x 8.5" high x 2.5" deep. Although it can be made with a regular shoulder strap, I did add an adjustable strap so it can be worn across the chest.
The Tami Bag has a stylishly designed split outside front pocket, a rear outside zippered pocket, a top zipper closure and 3 slip-in inside pockets.
