For those of you that have made the bag, do you think it would be possible to use laminated fabric, or too bulky?

I am having trouble visualizing Step 2. It says to lay a pair of pocket linings between each piece (B1-B4). I can't tell from the diagram, are these pocket linings stacked one atop the other? RST or WST? Thanks!

It doesn't really matter, this step is only to help you keep the pieces orderly. The testers & my students tended to get the pieces confused without it. It is very easy to mix them up or loose this many pieces.

I followed so many pages to get here, only to find it was not a free project. I saw it and I knew instantly I needed to make it for my friend, she carries a large bag (purse) and is ALWAYS searching for, well everything! I just don't have the $ right now to make her a gift so am putting it on my wish list .... someday, maybe. I love the design and it is cute AND functional.

So nice! We worked for hours, but the result is great! Will do more the following week! Instruction was good, need to read careful several tomes, but I'm not a native english speaker and get! Looking forward to see more projects of you! 5 stars for the pattern!

I think the pouch is cute, but can't see spending 12 dollars on it. I would pay 8 or 9. But it is a pouch, and I would have to justify the total cost of the pouch, with fabric, zippers and pattern to be reasonable. This one could get pricey. All of that being said, if you are looking for a great pouch with many divided pockets, this is a good design. I have friends who have made it, and they love the ending results.

Personally... I resisted popping $12 for this, too. But, I'm glad I did. I had a nice day watching TV & building this one. There was a thing or two about the way this bag was constructed that were different from things I've done in the past - so I learned somethin' new. :)

Could you please give the measurements of the side panel pieces? The length of the top would be enough, I just want to check that I got my printer to print this exactly to scale. Thanks!

I have left comments about this bag on my project page, but so sorry I did not comment on your page. I bought your pattern, made 5 of these the first go around. I gave four of them away. Then I took it in to my LQS and they asked me to teach it. I taught four women and they are all hooked!! I gave one to one of my friends and she bought the pattern and made four for her friends. It is like potato chips, one bag is not enough. I would say some pictures would help with the initial bag. But once you have it down, it is a piece of cake. And the bag is AWESOME. I have so far made ten with three more cut out. All gifts. My friends and family are lucky .......l,ol Keep up the good work.

I LOVE this bag and plan to make more and am I very happy with the end result. However, I was very disappointed in the lack of pictures and detail in the pattern. I've never purchased a pattern from Craftsy before, but for $12 for a .pdf download I had much higher expectations.

I have made two bags already and I am working on a third. I am trying to line this with clear vinyl for a make-up bag. So far it is working well it is just extra work and a pain in the rumpus. I have figured out a way to take the pocket linings out of the bulk of the side seam since the vinyl will create so much bulk. I am really living the challenge though :)

Lining it with PUL would be easier since PUL isn't so bulky.

I loved this bag and HAD to make it. It does take some time but worth the effort. I would really have to love the quilter friend to make one for her. I liked the idea of using laminates for the pockets to stash toothbrush and make up.

I was looking forward to making this bag and I'm glad I set aside a chunk of time to do it. It all came together so well - the measurements are perfect and the instructions are easy to follow. I was tempted to hand stitch the bindings as I'm not a quilter but I took a deep breath and was pleasantly surprised at how straight I managed to stitch in the ditch! I think next time I'll leave the cutting of the outer layer until I've finished the lining - my outer was too short because of the way I sew zips so I had to add an inch on either end. But a cute fabric turned this extra strip into a design feature! Overall a great pattern with some techniques I hadn't used before. I'll be making many more...

It was not you! The inner lining pattern does turn out about 1 inch longer than the outer piece. In the directions it tells you to trim the inner lining to match the outer piece. I had to do this because when I had the lining pieces measurement exactly correct, the pattern testers mixed up the pieces too easily. So never fear just trim off the extra ! I am glad you enjoyed the pattern!

I am making this bag without the pin cushion to carry in my knitting bag. I would like to make another one and use laminated fabric to line the individual zipper pouches instead of interfacing. It would be perfect to carry a toothbrush, makeup, first aid supplies, etc. to work because everything would be organized in it's own compartment. I am pleasantly surprised at how easy this bag it to sew. There is nothing difficult about it---just take your time with the zippers and binding---the bag isn't hard to sew, just a bit time-consuming.
