West Linn PiPs


The West Linn PiPs are singing in 3-part harmony.  Once upon a time I was supposed to teach this bag but it never happened.  I like to be prepared and I'm a visual person so I had the pattern in various stages of construction.  Knowing that I didn't really want to finish 3 bags I decided to finish the one most complete and give the other two to a friend.


This bag is now singing solo and no longer a Pip! It's been a very productive month.  How are your PiPs coming along?

~Piecefully, Stephanie

Sweet bag - love the applique. Good on you for finishing so many projects. My PIP's are doing fine... thriving all by themselves :)

I like to do that too when I am going to teach. And yep, sometimes you are stuck with parts but you can finish them like you did. Very pretty.

West Linn is such a nice bag. This is a very pretty colour combination. - I'm working on a PIP but it is not an advanced one!

Great way to low the number of PiPs. I bet your friends were thrilled with their gift. The bag is darling.
