First off, I love this bag. LOVE!
I was very excited when Anna asked me if I would like to test her new bag pattern. I’ve made a few of her tutorials and the 241 tote and I knew I would love anything new she was creating. She definitely didn’t disappoint!
It’s a decent size bag, but well organized. I can’t stand big bags that are just empty shells where all of your stuff is impossible to find. There’s 3 divided pockets on the front and one big pocket on the back. I like that the pockets are easily accessible so I could drop my keys in and retrieve them quickly.
It holds a TON of stuff. I took it today on a trip out of town and I managed to carry all of this:
- makeup bag
- 2 snack bags of pretzels
- epi pens
- pen + day planner
- my glasses in their case
- a leapster in it’s case
- and a partridge in a pear tree (i kid…)
I know I won’t be carrying this much everyday, but it makes me happy to know I could carry that much if I wanted. Options are good, ha!
The interior has a slip pocket that’s perfect for my phone and a pen. Lots of ways to customize too. I chose to use resin snaps on the large outside pocket and the inside slip pocket and I added binding to the outside pockets for an extra pop of color.
Well written pattern and great end result, A++ in my book!
