More Info provided by Maryall

Pattern Rating:Highly Recommend
Fabric:Upholstery Tapestry  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description:
"Not too big, not too small – just right! This Carry-All Bag might be just right to carry everything you need to the gym, as a carry-on bag for travelling or even for an overnight stay. There are lots of pockets both inside and out so you can quickly and easily keep everything organised and to hand without having to rummage about.

A wide zipper top makes loading and unloading the bag a breeze and zipper pockets inside and out also keep things secure. All pockets are optional and can be placed either inside, outside or both."

Pattern Sizing: N/A

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, especially since there are also video instructions provided

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked it being so easy to sew, despite the large number of pattern pieces. I never felt alone when sewing it, the instructions are very clear.

Fabric Used:
Medium weight upholstery cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Left out the bag feet and the square rings (didn't have any )

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, and yes! I had many compliments for it!

It's a great pattern, I don't think we can ever have too many bags or bag patterns, right? ;) More details on my blog Here

Thank you for your compliments, ladies! :) @ LinnG: "Finished bag measures approx 12 inches tall, by 17 inches wide and about 6 inches deep" - from Deby's launch post ;) I'm not using it as an everyday purse, because it is a bit too big for that, for my taste. But it's perfect if I go out for a whole day, and I need to carry my stuff, as well as my daughter's :)

I love the way your bag turned out. Love the vibrant colors. I bought the pattern a few days ago and have it printed and taped together. Fabric is chosen. Now I just have to find the sewing time. Do you use yours as a purse? I don't know if I saw a finished size in the pattern for this. Deby does such a good job with her patterns and video instructions.

Nicely executed! Looks wonderful... Like that the top zips shut... no spilling out when/if slides off the car seat, etc... Thanks for sharing
