Finally! The moment you've been waiting for:
We are SUPER HAPPY! to announce the re-release of three of Jen's most popular Bala Bag patterns in a new and improved format! PLUS Jen's brand new Forever Kaffe pattern for this bag. Especially for the adventurous, we also re-vamped Jen's Blank Canvas: everything you need to know to customize our Bala Bag with your own hooking design.
If you already have basic rug hooking skills and supplies, plus know how to use a needle and a pair of scissors and sew a simple seam with a sewing machine, then you can make the Bala Bag! Let Jen walk you through each step with lots of description and colour photos - and show you exactly how to make this practical and beautiful hooked bag.
The Bala Bag is the culmination of all Jen's adventures in purse-making. Jen considers the Bala Bag her best overall design - in terms of both its classic and stylish look, and ease of assembly!
