Pattern Description:

This was the very first bag we designed, so it has a special place in our hearts. We wanted to design a bag with so many customizable details that you could sew it over and over with completely different effects, and we think we achieved just that.

The Whole Shebang is a large multipurpose totebag with fully customizable outer and inner pockets, top or side straps, optional zipper closure, side ties or snaps, optional piping, and keychain clip. The finished size is about 14" x 20" x 10". We have made Whole Shebangs that are serving as gym bags, diaper bags, beach bags, market bags, and light overnight bags. The possibilities are endless!

This is a PDF pattern with16 pages and over 40 color photos.
