|Pattern Description: |
This is a one-piece lined tote bag with a cuff around the top edge and an optional Velcro closure.
Two sizes: 16" x 19" and 10" x 11". I made two of the smaller bags from less than one yard of fabric.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were clear and easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really liked being able to make a lined bag without having to sew in the lining. The finished product is sturdy and attractive.
The bag went together amazingly quickly.
The instructions did not specify sewing closed the lengthwise fold on the straps. I sewed three lines of stitching on the straps parallel to the lengthwise edge, which made them stronger and more stable.
Cotton remnants, a solid and a print, that I pieced to make a rectangle of the required size.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I chose not to use a Velcro closure.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Oh yes, definitely! Christmas gifts, church bazaar tables - lots of possibilities.
Conclusion: I'm really taken with this pattern. I predict it will become one of my favourites.
