Noodlehead :: Go Anywhere Bag


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:

  • camera
  • wallet
  • makeup bag
  • 2 snack bags of pretzels
  • epi pens
  • cellphone
  • pen + day planner
  • my glasses in their case
  • sunglasses
  • 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!
