A few moths ago now, Katy @ The Littlest Thistle put out a call for pattern testers for her "Bag Along Bag" pattern and I put up my hand to volunteer.I decided to use up some of my Denyse Schmidt "Aunt Edna" stash with some grey denim to make this large 15” x 11 1/2” x 5 1/2” bag.
I used contrasting red piping and a red zip for the back pocket.
This is a fabulous bag to make as Katy's pattern includes quite a number of different techniques including:
- External zip pocket
- Internal zip pocket
- Bellows pocket
- Elasticated pockets
- Twist and turn lock (I ended up using magnetic snaps as I could not find any twist locks)
- Adjustable strap
- Recessed zip opening
- Bag feet
This bag could also be adapted for use as a camera bag or baby bag - Annelieises daughter is using hers as a dance bag. I am planning to use mine when we go on holidays soon as I can use it for carry-on luggage on the flight.Katy has done a post about the bags that her other pattern testers have made also, so please pop over here and see their lovely versions..
