This is a large, reversible tote bag with two pockets- one inside, one outside.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were, very straight forward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The only thing I had trouble with was the handle fold- the pattern has you fold the handles in half in the middle and sew them together for 3 inches- makes it easier to grip the bag. But I had trouble lining up the top and bottom sides seams to make the fold stitch not show, and with the fabric, interfacing, and fleece interfacing, the folded fabric was almost too thick to get it under my machine's foot.
Joel Dewberry home decor fabric that I had left over from a coat and cotton calico from JoAnn's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
none. though I'm making this bag as a gift for 3 different people, as well as one for myself, and I am planning on making those shorter bags- the pattern as written makes a bag that's about 19" tall. I'm planning on making some that are 15" tall instead.
Different versions of this bag.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Great bag, easy pattern.
