I am SO EXCITED to announce my new pattern that I do not even need another cup of coffee!! It’s fitting that I’m writing this at 1am, since 80% of this pattern has been designed and written after Emmett goes to bed, often ending with me staying up until sunrise! (Get it?) But, I assure you it has been thoroughly tested and we are overwhelmingly in love with this new bag!
Here is it, the Sunrise Saddle Bag!
After being encouraged by my customers to design a smaller bag, I decided to work on a small cross-body bag. It was quite the evolution but I am thrilled with the result!

Every hour of lost sleep was WORTH IT. Is worth it. I love it. And I think you will too!
It even pairs perfectly with Get Carded!
May 8th is my birthday, and I will be 30… something. So until Wednesday night (your time) the whole Pattern Shop, including the new Sunrise Saddle Bag and Get Carded, will be 30% off!
We are launching straight into the next pattern after this, so stay tuned! My babysitter will be thanking you for adding to her college fund! :P
Thank you and HAPPY SEWING!!!
P.S. I will be back tomorrow with all of the tester photos!
Congratulations on another fabulous pattern! Having been part of the testing process, I already know what a beautiful job you’ve done once again. Your attention to detail is outstanding, and combined with your photos and extra tips, it makes for a pattern that’s easy to sew and turns out a bag to be proud of! Way to go!
I’d wish you a Happy Birthday, but since it’s still only the 7th in the USA, I know you aren’t really that 30-something yet. 😉 I’ll catch you on FB. 🎂
I’ve only ever bought one of your patterns (which was brilliant and I must make another bag from it) but I have to say I think all your designs are fantastic! And I have been so inspired by reading here about the whole process, and especially reading that you go through many ideas and prototypes before you get it perfect. I say inspired because I have made many bags in the past to my own designs (nothing like as good as yours though!) and am currently trying to work out a bicycle bar bag. I’ve only made two prototypes so far and thought “Oh I think I’ll give up, I’ll never get it right!” but you have inspired me to keep going. Or maybe you should design one………………………..
Oh and doing all this with a toddler on hand is even more amazing!
Keep up the good work!
[…] be the front of a bag. Erin, from Dog Under My Desk, released a new pattern last week called the Sunrise Saddlebag. I thought the flap on the bag would be perfect for my quilt block. I had to enlarge the size of […]
Hello! I’m looking to try out the Sunrise Saddle bag. Does this have a boxed bottom? If not, what type of bottom? Also, does this have a video tutorial? I couldnt find one on yt. TIA!
