Another great designer for chaincreative to shout about - Jen at Fable Handmade Goods - who has sent us into squeaks of delight when we saw her meadow handbag pattern. Jen's design odyssey started much like my own in sewing and scrummaging through scrap bags and ending discovering the potential of crochet, and now she 'dreams of fabric and yarn and vintage buttons'.

All the patterns are listed on her website and
sit so nicely together as a collection. Ooo, I really do love that meadow bag though. That might have to be a purchase, I think!!! Patterns are sooo reasonable at $6 (payable online) but if you want to dip your toes into the pattern shallows then there are freebies too. These designers are always generous I find. Hurrah!! I particularly love the passionflower handbag and the colours are divine.

As with many of these designers, Fable* has an Etsy shop where you can also buy the patterns, so there's no excuse!

As you can tell I'm really enthusiastic about all these creative people I feature and Fable* is no exception. Jen also has a wonderful blog, The Fabled Needle, which is an excellent resource for news and tips on just about any handmade activity!
