The yellow ribbon tied around the 'old oak tree' has for many years represented homecoming and the end of long absences. In the 90's this idea developed into the crossed red ribbon representing AIDS awareness. Today there are as many ribbons and variations in ribbon color as there are causes and diseases. Each one expresses the empathy and the awareness of the wearer.

It is my hope that the making of this bag will encourage others to start their own personal positive action campaign making use of their unique and diverse talents.

This bag is easily assembled in about 3 hours and is a fulfilling and fun project for ambitious beginners to intermediate level quilters and up. The bag shown on the front cover, symbolizing Breast Cancer Awareness, is from the Passionately Pink collection by Northcott. The back cover shows two examples made with Hoffman Bali Pops. This pattern is ideal for use with precut strips or with yardage. Inside the pattern you will find a list of all the awareness ribbons , their causes and their colors.

A portion of the sale of this pattern will be donated to the Cancer Society.

Has hubby been complaining that he has not seen the top of the coffee table in months? Are the rugs in your home and your clothing covered in loose threads from your latest sewing project? Have the appliqué scissors ever fallen and speared you in the foot? When looking for that embroidery panel you just put down are you horrified to find it under the cat? Has anyone in your home been heard to say #!!X@!! when the remote went missing?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions then the Sofa Saddlebag is for you! Here’s a great little organizer that will hang next to your favorite chair. Slip the weighted side arm under or beside your seat cushion. The big catch-all pocket snaps shut with the help of a short length of springy metal carpenters measuring tape! Customize it to fit your own chair or sofa by taking one simple measurement. It’s easy!

Be perfectly organized when taking your baby out for quick trips.

Inside, a zipped moisture proof pocket holds diapers and wipes. The adjustable handle can be used over the shoulder or worn cross body.

Make the bag in one of two ways. In Option 1 you use designer fabric for the outer shell and waterproof P.U.L. on the interior. In Option 2 use Babyville brand P.U.L. inside and out. Instructions are given for working with both types of P.U.L. product.
