That is so cute. What a great gift idea to give a child a pair of jammies, and put them in the strawberry bag as the wrapping.

Thanks - did you create this?

Ooooh, I love the jammie bag! My youngest niece will be getting this for a Christmas present.

Your designs are awesome. You are so very talented.

I love the pot of daisies in the bag holder book - do you think I could weight and sew up the bottom and just use it as decoration?

Take care,
Tricia

Hey there! Just a quick note to tell you how much I love the pattern I found on your site for a strawberry PJ bag!!! It went so quick and it turned out amazing. I see a note at the end to please let you know about any errors, but I'm not sure if this was one or I worked the pattern wrong. For the flowers, following the wording how I interpreted it I got 4 petals. However, if I slip stiched in the same stitch as the second DC cluster rather than in the next free stitch, the numbers worked out perfectly. Dunno if that makes sense, but... :)

Also, a question...I can't find anything saying whether you can sell your finished products from your patterns. Is that allowed? Such as on Etsy? Anyway, thanks again for the wonderful pattern! Great job!

You can exchange elastic for the drawstrings and make this or any drawstring patter baby and toddler safe. No risk of strangulation! Happy Stitching, Amanda.

Hi! I just made this bag for my daughter from some strawberry-scented dark pink Lily Sugar N Cream Cotton that I found at Michael's. It turned out great! Thank you for the pattern!
