I am so excited to share my latest pattern with you,
The inspiration for this bag came when I found myself moving past the need for a “chuck everything
including the kitchen sink in” diaper bag into the “my kids are old enough to carry their own stuff, I just need my phone, wallet, keys and essentials” bag.
The size suited my needs perfectly so I thought I’d share the pattern with you.
The “All-in-one” bag is a small grab-and-go bag with different compartments for all your essentials.
It hosts a pocket for your phone, pen, 8 card holders, a central dividing zipper pocket and a spare side pocket.
At 7.5 inches wide by 11 inches wide (19cm by 28cm) it is a lovely, light compact size, yet the inside is suprisingly roomy.
You can see I’ve made it in 2 different colourways so far and plan to make a more scrappy version next.
I’ve also had 3 different friends test the pattern for me. They have each done a fantastic job!!!
Here are their results…
Niki made her bag using fall colours, perfect for the season she’s moving into.
I love how it turned out!
I especially love the blend of fabrics that she’s used on the inside. They really pop!
“The All in One Bag Pattern was a delight to sew — clear instructions, clever construction, and neat features. It fits everything I need to carry to keep up with my kids in style, and I love how it converts from a shoulder bag to a wristlet!”
In fact, Niki liked the pattern so much that she went right ahead and made a second one for a friend. Two great bags in the space of a few days – nice work Niki!
Next up was Mary…
Lucky for Mary she doesn’t live locally, otherwise my girls would threaten to snatch this bag since Mary went with a pink version!
I especially love how the pink and the brown dots play together. Not to mention that bright pop of blue. Love love love!
