Kay Whitt’s new Sew Serendipity Bags follows the success of her popular Sew Serendipity book. Sew Serendipity Bags includes instructions for 12 bags with many variations. The twenty projects in the book include everything from a backpack, lunch bag and shopping bag to task-oriented bags (perfect for everything from toting diapers to your laptop!). The (hardback!) book includes some really fun designs, lots of clear instruction and 6 full-size paper pattern sheets.

In celebration of the book’s release Krause Publications is giving Sew,Mama,Sew! readers a free PDF project from Sew Serendipity Bags! The Lunch Bucket Bag provides a great example of Kay’s style and the quality of the design and instructions in the book.

From Sew Serendipity Bags:

What a stylish way to carry your lunch! This little bag is a modern twist on the old-fashioned “lunch pail” from long ago. Featuring decorative hardware on the handle and a convenient drawstring closure, this bag is not only functional, but good-looking and easy to make. Once you carry this little number to work, everyone will want one!
