It is time to show you the bag that I was testing for Christine at Chris W Designs. She just released this new pattern today and it is called The Stow It All Tote. You can find out more info on this pattern and see the variety of bags done by all of the testers here. By the way, "Thank You" to my granddaughter, Maddie, for posing with this bag for me. She is also my model for Christine's Photographic Contest found here. (Christine has extended the deadline for that contest until the end of June.)
The back of this bag has another pocket that can be divided as the front is or left as one to house a tablet.
The top of the bag has a recessed zipper closure to keep everything in its place
The interior of the bag is roomy and has a zipper pocket on one side and a large pocket divided into 2 slip pockets and a pen pocket on the other side.
I love this bag. It is rated as an intermediate sewing project. The most difficult parts of this bag are the gussets on the sides of the bag and you can certainly tackle those if you take your time. Christine's patterns are professional as is the bag you end up with. She explains each step clearly and concisely and shows pictures of the steps along the way. Even if you look at the pattern and think you can't do that....I bet you can!
You can expect to see more of these bags on my blog and on my soon to come Etsy store. Yes...I finally put that in print. People don't believe me anymore when I say it is coming because I have been saying that for so long. Look for it by the first of July. Uh Oh ...now I really better get busy!!!! I haven't left myself much time.
