Saturday morning walk
Made a carry-all for kiddo. She tried it out for our morning walk, and decided it's perfect.
She can tote around all of her on-the-go "essentials" like water, gum, lip gloss, camera and her kiddie novels.
Review xposted on PR:
Pattern Description: lined bags w/ Velcro closures
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes. view B
Were the instructions easy to follow? GREAT instructions. Very easy to understand - no "duh" moments
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? this was a very easy pattern for quite a stylish bag! I made this as a carry-all for my 10 y/o daughter.
other bag patterns I have looked at seemed so complicated in construction and needed many hard to find notions. this is a winner at ease and potential.
the bag is also very sturdy - all pieces except the lining are interfaced. and one thing to note is to be mindful about choosing heavy fabrics, because you have to go over many layers.
Fabric Used: denim on outside and lightweight canvas for lining
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: used heavyweight fusible instead of sew-in interfacing. Put on iron on jewels.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I think it would look nice in a variety of fabrics - and there is ample space to get fancy with embellishments. I like this for kids and it would be a nice bag for walking or shopping.
Conclusion I want to try all views!
