Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness is a favorite around here, and just about everywhere else too! The author of the new Windy-city Bags: 12 Handbags and Totes Sewn With Structure and Style, Sara also designs fabric, patterns and she has a new Craftsy class too! Building Better Bags: Interfacing and Structure.

Building Better Bags helps you make any handbag more professional and stylish, with everything you need to know about interfacing with flexible fusibles, medium and heavy-duty interfacings, fleece, foams and more.

Windy-city Bags gives you twelve gorgeous handbag and tote patterns with instructions. The class and the book together will be a powerful kickstart to your bag game!

To celebrate her NEW book, NEW class and a NEW year, Sara is giving away one copy of Windy-City Bags and one free Building Better Bags class. Sara’s an all-around lovely and generous person so she’s also giving something else away… You can download her free Discotech Clutch PDF Pattern! Everyone wins!

The Discotech Clutch is just right for confident beginning sewists. The clutch requires minimal fabric and it’s a nice accessory for everything from casual to more sophisticated outfits/outings.
