Pattern Description:

This bag was inspired by it's larger counterpart, the Sweet Retreat Bag. This perfectly sized tote is strong enough to carry books, laptops, and anything else you throw into it! The tote is quilted and the handles go around the bottom, offering extra support. The bag looks much more complicated than it actually is! The entire thing is constructed flat until the sides are added at the very end. There are two styles included in the pattern, a checker version made with a jelly-roll or bali-pop and a whole cloth version. The bag looks great with fun large prints! There are pockets on the front, back, sides, and inside of the bag. The zipper is optional but incredibly easy to add!

Good baby little sister bag  October 1, 2013


Already made a full size bag, and wanted a smaller version. So adapted the pattern to fit my material available. It is very quick and reasonably easy to sew, especially the second time round. Still a few adjustments to make, but very close to the pattern.

Good Simple but time consuming  September 1, 2013


SO MUCH BINDING! That's the big story of this bag, there's a lot of binding. It makes the bag look great, and I've made two so far with another one fully planned. Just be warned, it's time consuming, but not difficult.

Excellent Carry all  August 31, 2013


My WOF's not long enough, should have thought about it more carefully and worked out what WOF I needed - sheer laziness on my part!!

Great pattern, easy to follow and make. I think the resulting bag looks great.

I wish that none of the Craftsy designer use the word WOF instead of the right measurements, since this word is not a standard measure at all because every fabric has different width especially if we use some scraps from our stash. It is very confusing when have to put together and cut to fit different pieces. Please, just put the right measurement in inches or centimeters. We will decide if has to go wof or lengthwise.
When this was clarified turn out to be a lovely bag.
