I purchased a pattern called the “Tahiti Tote” by Pink Sand Beach Designs (they have awesome bag designs). It is 15.5″ wide at the top and 11.5″ tall and 4″ deep. This pattern was touted as “easy” but I would characterize it as advanced beginner. I was very happy to have a powerful machine as there were multiple layers to sew through (including two types of interfaces). I like the bulk of this bag – it stands up by itself as you can see!!
I used some darling fabric from Timeless Treasures as the main fabric and then found some fabric in my stash which coordinated with it.
The front has two pockets – one on top of the other. The top pocket has a zipper, the bottom pocket is just open on the top and would be a great place for me to slip my keys into…
The top closes with a zipper as well.
The inside of this bag is nice and roomy and has a plethora of pockets – six to be exact!
I’m looking forward to using this one all summer long!
