Pattern Description:

The Multi-Purpose Carry All Bag is a beautiful bag suitable for many and varied functions. This listing is for the pdf pattern for you to make it your own.

The bag dimensions are 16 1/2" long x 14" high x 7" wide (41.25cm long x 35cm high x 17.5cm wide) - large enough to suit many purposes.

As illustrated by the photographs the bag has many pockets both inside and out - externally there is a pocket on each end wide enough to fit a quilter's ruler, babies bottles, kids toys or all manner of things.

Internally there is a pocket on each side which can be divided into any width - the pattern details how to do this.

A big plus for this bag is the Interior Gusseted Divider Section. It is padded to provide protection for precious books, quilter's hoops, electronic ipads or laptops and is 2" wide.

The handles of the bag are long enough to carry the bag over your shoulder, freeing up your hands for other activities.

The bag is lined with Peltex to give it a rigid and sturdy structure - it won't collapse the minute you put it down and therefore offers great protection for all your precious goodies inside!
