When I first started selling PDF sewing patterns back in 2009, I focused on making bags, purses, and children’s patterns as I built up my pattern drafting and grading skills. Over the past several years, I’ve focused more on sewing clothing rather than making bags and I’ve noticed many of you doing the same. So we decided it’s time to say goodbye to three classic Made By Rae sewing patterns, the Lickety Split Bag, the Showoff Bag, and the Bonsai Bag.
These three bag patterns have been favorites of mine and much beloved by many of you, but in an effort to pare down my pattern offerings and consolidate the shop, I’ve decided to retire them. So I’m offering them from now until the end of July 2018 at a discount.
Just in case you missed the Bag Era here at Made by Rae, here’s a quick run-down of the patterns:
The Lickety Split is a versatile, reversible tote that is super quick and easy to sew. The pockets are super-handy for keys, phones, or water bottles, and the adjustable tie strap allows you to get the perfect length. I always loved tying the top to strollers and bike handles.

The Bonsai Bag is a fully-lined bag, perfect for framing a favorite fabric with that pleated outer panel and optional trim! Features include tied handles and decorative rings. An inner pocket and a magnetic snap or zipper closure make stashing your stuff a breeze!
