Galaxie 5

The day after Thanksgiving means it’s time for shopping! No Black Friday would be complete without a new release from Jalie. This year they’ve created another wonderful pattern (their Galaxie 3 carry on is one of my most used bags of all time), the VEGA convertible bag. This pattern (and video tutorial) shows you how to create a spacious bag that can be used as a backpack, tote, or messenger. It also has a front and side pockets (great for water bottles), zippered pocket, interior pouches, and key leash so nothing gets lost.

I had the opportunity to test this pattern out pre-release and LOVE it! I used Zor-elle’s Winter Skulls & Moth’s Canvas (as well as their skull zipper pulls, zipper tape, d-rings, and clasps) for the exterior and a purple canvas from Joann as an accent, straps, and handle.

You can grab this pattern for the next 4 days at 50% off using the code GALAXIE5.
