Our 17-year-old designer, Katie, designed this partly for fun, and partly for a teen sewing / quilting class she's teaching. And while it's great for young sewers and beginners, Katie's Draw-string Bag is functional and cute for anyone. The clever design of this bag attaches the draw-strings to the body of the bag, so it can be carried by the drawstrings or worn like a backpack, and the fully-lined interior has finished seams that look like french seams. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing skills Fabric A (bottom stripe) - 1/4 yard Fabric B (middle stripe) - 1/4 yard Flower - 1/8 yard or scraps Lining - 1/2 yard Scrap of batting (for flower) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished size: 14-1/2" x 14-1/2"

Hi! I'm Christine. My family and I started Amelie Scott Designs back in 2008. It was just the perfect business for our family. I love to sew and quilt and create, and so does my daughter. My husband, Mark, has degrees in English, and used to be an editor. (Yes, I sleep with the editor to get myself published, but it has worked well for 25 years so why not.) Back in 2008 my son was taking a web design class in high school, so he was put in charge of our website. Being a teenage boy, he was not keen on a "sewing business," and would tell his friends and teachers that we "sell 'stuff' out of our basement." Later though, he took over creating all the wonderful diagrams we have in our patterns. He is now studying to be an accountant, and is slowing taking over the books. I also work and teach part time in at Quilt Beginnings, in Dublin, Ohio. People often ask us how we got our company name. My daughter's middle name is Amelie (named after my favorite ancestor and pronounced (uh may lee), and my middle name is Scott. I hope you enjoy making up our projects as much as we enjoy creating them! Send us pictures! We LOVE seeing your finished projects.
