The BLUE JAY Crossbody - A New Beginning!
The Blue Jay began life as the original Cottonwood by GML Designs. As GML Designs is now producing patterns as Lockwood & Webb Designs it was decided that the Cottonwood start its new life with a new name as well - Introducing The Blue Jay!
The pattern has been updated and written and illustrated in the same style and format as all Lockwood & Webb patterns. We have made a few changes to the pattern pieces and rewritten the instructions to reflect how Gwen personally makes 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 Blue Jay comes with three sizes included -
REGULAR: 14.25"w x 11" h
TALL: 12.5"w x 12.5"h
GRANDE: 16.5"w x 12.5"h
Skill Level: Intermediate
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.
We hope you will love the updates and we look forward to seeing many Blue Jay's out in the sewing world.
