crafternoon with my girl thursday and myself

Firstly, thank you to Annika for the clever 'Crafternoon' name. We obviously need people like you to  name things like this for us.

Chantilly and I are excited to announce our second craft along that will be happening this Sunday April 29th at 4 pm EDT on our UStream channel.  Hopefully we chose a time that will work for our local and overseas friends, we would love it if you joined us! This time we will be making a bike bag for all of your travel biking needs. Isn't it awesome?! I can't wait to make one for myself!
For this project you will need:
- 1 yard weather resistent or vinyl coated fabric (if you plan on doing lining with a different fabric buy - 1/2 y shell and 1/2 y lining)
- thread
- sewing machine
- 1/2 yard 3/4" velcro (heavy duty if you can find it)
- 3/4 yard 1" cotton webbing

We will be releasing the pattern you will need later in the week!

We had so much fun at our last craft party and I can't wait to do it again this time. Let us know if you think you'll be able to make it and we'll save you a virtual seat and assign you a virtual snack to bring. Ok, so, seating is not limited and unfortunately the technology required for internet snack sharing has not been mastered yet, I'm just trying to sound fancy.


PS. I'll be back later to announce the winner of the Chantilly (different Chantilly) prize pack giveaway so make sure you get your entries in if you would like a chance at winning!


  1. Woohoo! I'm excited for another craft party! Maybe I should take a study break Sunday afternoon and join the fun again...

  2. Oh man, I will be travelling home from a friend's wedding on Sunday evening (BST=5 hours ahead!) otherwise I would be there!

  3. Super cute! I can't wait until we get bikes upon our moving to San Antonio.

  4. Oh this sounds like fun! I haven't broken in my new sewing machine with a project, so this sounds like a good opportunity. I'm wondering how well it'll work with my bike, though, because I have a step through?

    1. The bag is actually even cooler than you are thinking and you can put it on the handlebars, bike rack or you can even wear it!


  5. (Oh and yes, "Crafternoon" is a genius name that I might use in the future for hosting craft parties of my own. Well done & massive props to Annika)

  7. That sounds so fun! Love the idea of a crafternoon!

  8. Ha-ha! You're welcome! :o) I thought that word was a staple in any crafty person's vocabulary already! I just heard it somewhere, unfortunately I did not invent it myself.
