I love to come up with a creative approach to a conventional need. My mother has been a great influence on me. She has always been very creative and resourceful. And she tells me that my great-grandmother was a terrific seamstress, too (which I do not claim to be!).
In addition to my sewing patterns, I have designed unconventional lamps, window coverings, table accessories and wall hangings. My inspiration comes from pretty much everything around me.
I left the corporate world in 2001. Although I have been creative in varying degrees ever since I can remember, now I get to be creative full time - a total dream come true. I live with my husband, a woodworker, and 2 dogs in beautiful, rural Chatham County, North Carolina.
I wanted a large bag that I could take projects in for traveling or use as a day or overnight bag. And I wanted a different shape for the overall bag than my other totes. Et Voila! Big Bag was born :).
Big Bag is a fun-to-make and great-to-use bag that is big and roomie with plenty of pockets - twelve of them! The overall bag is zippered and has a tapered side-view.
** This is a 5 page sewing tutorial! (dimensions for cutting fabric pieces is included) All pieces are rectangular and 6 photos are included to clarify instructions.**
Copyright 2007 - Feel free to sell what you make from this pattern, but note somewhere on your bag or tag that the design is mine - thx.
