Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic bag is perfect for a beginner. Adding options is suggested with only a little experience.

Pattern Description:

Do your bags always over flow?

Do you wish you had a bag that fit it all?
I did, I was tired of fighting the small bags! I wanted something that was big enough to hold a 3 ring binder, and toys for the kids.

I originally made this bag to be reversible, and hold anything and everything. Thanks to many comments and inspiration of others. This bag is now the NEW BIG BAG!

Full of options -
- Zipper to close the bag
- Snap to close the bag
- Side pocket for inside or outside of the bag
- Large pocket
- Key and phone pocket
- zipper storage pocket
- Separator
- And I had to still leave it basic for the reversible option!
You have the choice with every bag you make from this pattern.
