The Book Club Bag is a sturdy book or tech bag with a top snap closure and a variety of interior pockets.
Not just for books, this easy-to-sew bag is tech-savvy too! The customizable large interior pocket can be sewn to fit a typical e-reader or tablet, or it can be customized to exactly fit the e-reader/tablet you own. In addition, an inside zippered pocket keeps valuables safe and an additional subdivided pocket can keep loose items organized.
I designed this bag to hold a books or an e-reader or tablet for a book club. I wanted to create something that was sturdy and kept a kindle or other e-reader in a separate pocket to protect it more.
I also was interested in creating a fun technique with strips. This pattern will show you how to sew a bag with strips. Note that the strips show more on the back and the front using the simple trick in the pattern.

I started selling purse pattern designs in 2011, and have enjoyed sewing and crafting since I was a kid. I have dabbled in sewing kids clothes, drapes, quilts, and other home projects, but I am completely addicted to designing and sewing purses!
