|Pattern Description: |
This is a fairly large tote bag! The pattern has four different variations which make it a great addition to your bag patterns collection.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Actually I like my version better than any of those shown on the envelope. Additional Photos
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Well, obviously I LOVE the generous size! The handle construction was new to me and is both cute and clever. The only thing I didn't like was using flannel as an interfacing. I have no idea why when there are plenty of other suitable materials (and that I already had in my stash). I bought and used flannel because I assumed there was some IMPORTANT reason. Ha!
When the local Joanns was closing in preparation for the opening of a superstore, I bought a number of fabrics on super-duper clearance. This plain vanilla cotton denim was one of those. I'm guessing it remained because it isn't stretch, which was perfect for me! The lining is also from Joanns quilting cottons. The bindings are from Hobby Lobby remnants.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
View A was chosen because it allowed the greatest landscape for embroidering. Embroidery Library's Mola designs fascinate me! I'm crazy for the gorgeous colors and bold lines.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely. I wish I'd cut the binding from the lining fabric, and I would likely use fleece for the interfacing in the future. Now that I have it down and know what changes I'd make in materials, I'm considering these as possible gifts for family.
Sewing bags gives me a welcome break from the tediousness of fitting garments. I'm always on the lookout for something a little different.
