That's Mmm for Martha and Mmm for May.
Yup, meet my Martha May bag made from the absolutely fabulous pattern just published by Judith today!
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this bag!
For me it was infatuation at first sight when Judith showed us Martha May on her blog a while back, so when she asked me if I would pattern test this bag for her, I almost bit her arm off for the opportunity (not literally you understand, but close to it).
The shape of the bag is cut from a template which you get in the pdf and then you're off following Judith's cutting instructions and methodical pattern steps. The great explanations and step by step instructions with plenty of photos really helped me to feel confident that I was interpreting the stages of the pattern properly. So, you fine folks out there are bound to find it just as accessible and, as Judith says, while it has been graded as Intermediate, if you have experience fitting zips you could very happily tackle this bag.
The pattern is now available on Judith's Etsy shop at a snip of a price. So, if you feel the need of a new bag for yourself for the autumn, or fancy making a start on some Christmas gifts for family and friends, stop reading this post now and get on over there and buy a copy! And, if you're heading anywhere special in July 2013, buy the pattern now and then this could be your must make bag for the FQ London Retreat - just saying!
And finally, if you go a bit Martha May mad like me, you can even draw up a smaller scale pattern template and follow the pattern all over again to stitch yourself up a matching Martha Mini to hold your lippy!
