Sara at SewSweetness had asked for some patern testers for this adorable bag.
I had to jump at the oppertunity! It is too cute to pass up.
This is my bag:
I love it, I use it as my to-go craft bag/purse.
Here is a cut from the e-mail she sent us with it's info:
"Whether you have a new baby or just have a ton of stuff to carry around in your bag, this one is for you! On the exterior, this bag features two elastic pockets, a three-dimensional snap pocket, and a back zippered pocket. On the inside, there are four elastic pockets and a zippered pocket. All of your things will have their special place! The bag is finished using bias tape on the lining side, so there is no hand sewing necessary!"
Finished Size: 16” long x 12” tall
1-1/4 yard of Exterior Fabric
1 yard of Lining Fabric
1-1/4 yard of Secondary Fabric (for inside of pockets, etc.)
2-1/2 yards of 20” wide Pellon® SF-101 Shape Flex® fusible woven interfacing (or light-weight fusible interfacing)
3/4 yard of By Annie’s Soft and Stable™, available at local quilt shops or on-line
(Soft and Stable is a 1/8” thick, foam sew-in interfacing; one of my testers also recommends automotive headliner fabric in place of the Soft and Stable; you can also substitute a needled fleece fusible interfacing for the Soft and Stable, such as Pellon #TP971F Thermolam Plus fusible interfacing)
14-1/2" x 5" piece of Pellon #70 Peltex sew-in extra-firm interfacing (optional, for added stability on the bottom)
