A vintage-inspired carry-all that Includes a zipper, piping (piping isnt as difficult as it looks), and two large pocket panels (one large pocket on the outside and 2 small ones on the inside). This is great for a short day or weekend trip, an airline carry-on, or just as a large purse. This would also make a great kid's overnight bag!

You MAY sell bags you make with this pattern.

I purchased this pattern in September and have finally just gotten around to making it. I bought the pattern with the intention of making a few adaptations to make this a camera bag. The pattern was pretty easy to follow and I am really pleased with how the bag turned out. I used 1/2" foam instead of peltex on the sides and bottom and put two pockets on the outside rather than one outside and one inside. I sewed velcro along the inside pieces before assembling the bag to I can attach inserts for my lenses and flash. Also, I added two inches to the depth so it's now 6" rather than 4". My only complaint would be the amount of hand sewing required/expected to attach the lining to the exterior. I HATE hand sewing and used the machine to sew as much as possible. If I had known the amount of hand sewing that was in the instructions I may have kept looking. BUT - as I said before, I am very pleased with the bag I made, it is just what I was wanting, but couldn't pay $200+ for!

While the bag has not been made yet, pre-reading the instructions indicate that the detailed directions will simplify the construction. Logical assembly too!
