I just loved the first Stow It All Tote I made from a pattern by Christine at Chris W Designs. You can see it here. I knew that I wanted to make another one soon but have been busy with other projects. I finally found the time.
The one thing I liked about my first bag was the use of prequilted fabric as the solid colored fabric. I decided to keep that component on this bag (you see, unlike many of you, I don't quilt). I used black last time but chose a chocolate brown this time. I have always liked brown and pink or brown and turquoise together and was lucky enough to find a brown, pink and white home dec fabric and combined those two fabrics with a pink quilting cotton with small white polka dots. Here it is.
I left the pocket on the back of the bag as one large pocket so a tablet could fit there.
The bottom of this bag has bag feet. I chose larger ones since this a good sized bag.
I love the way the lining fabric forms a trim on the top of the bag, top of the outside pockets and top of the inside slip pocket. It looks like binding but it's not. It's super simple to do.
The bag closes with a recessed zipper closure.
I love this bag so much. It is made with by Annie Soft and Stable. This foam product provides for a firm but soft support. This bag stands up very well on its own.
I'm sure there will be a third bag somewhere down the line. Probably more!!! No, definitely more!!!
