The Blue Jay - Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end........
As some of you may know, my first design - lovingly named the Cottonwood, was originally written and released a few years ago under different terms in order to make the PDF pattern available to you. The initial agreement has LONG been fulfilled, & since our patterns are now all under the Lockwood & Webb Designs name, it only makes sense that it should be as well. So with that being said, may we introduce to you the new Blue Jay Crossbody!!!
The pattern has been updated to now be written and illustrated in the same style and format as all our other patterns. We have made a few changes to the pattern pieces and rewritten the instructions to reflect how we personally make this fabulous design, thus making it easier for you to use other textiles such as vinyl and leather.
For those who are seeing her for the first time, we hope you love her as much as we do! She's like the little sister to our Hummingbird. The distinct differences are the Blue Jay has a round bottom and magnetic closure, and the Hummingbird is a boxed bottom bag with a zippered closure. Although these differences don't seem like much, they really do change the look of the bag. Some people just prefer one shape over the other.
If you purchased the original version directly from Gwen via either her GML Designs Etsy or Craftsy store, and would like the updated Blue Jay, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (with your proof of purchase information from either of her web stores) and we will happily send you a copy.
We hope you will love our newest release and we look forward to seeing many Blue Jay's out in the sewing world.
In the meantime please enjoy these beautiful Blue Jay's made by our testers!
