The first bag that I made was the Diana Hobo Bag which is a free pattern. The only challenge on this one was learning to insert a magnetic snap.
A few years ago, at the frat house retreat, several of us made the Supertote. It involved lots of fusing, elastic pockets and zippers as well as piping. I added a key fob so that my keys would still be findable. Here is mine…can you tell that I really like Echino fabric?
But what I might like to make is the 241 tote, which I have been eyeing for some time…or a newer bag of Noodlehead’s, the Caravan tote.
And, if you are not into zippers, there is Jeni Baker's Drawstring Bag that we made for a swap a few years ago. Here is the lovely one that Jessie made.
Recently I have eyed some of the small bags that are designed for your sewing kit. I really would like to make one. Should it be the Sewtogether Bag such as Melinda's?
Or perhaps the Bionic Bag? Have you made either one of these? Could you steer me in one direction or the other? I would love some guidance in making a choice.
Do you have a favorite bag pattern that you would recommend? Or one that you will be making for the first time on Saturday? Suggestions for novice bag makers as well as experience sewists are all welcome. Please, share what you want to make!
