What are you most proud of? The bias binding and stitching all that bias in place, without too much repeating of seams.

Thank you for posting a picture of the inside - it looks as though the bag is bigger than I thought it was. I like your colours, and I think it's rather elegant! Well done!

Thank you. I did include more pockets than the original pattern. It is a big bag, 24x24 in total. Have now made two of them.

Hi Cari, great bag! I have a question re: your pockets... did you use the decor bond? Also how does it work with the pockets going all the way to the bottom of the lining when you sew everything together? I'm making my 2nd tt, for my mom, as a knitting bag & wanted to do a longer & deeper pocket, similar to yours. Would love any tips! Thnx! :)

Hello Meredith, with the pockets I cut a piece of fabric the width of the bag and double the height of my pocket choice. eg: 24 x 20. I did line the pocket but with a light interfacing, not the deco bond. Press the interfacing on and then fold the height down, with ragged edge to the bottom. I made 2 pockets per bag & sewed them together in the middle to make extra pockets. I only used fusible fleece for my bag lining, so everything sewed together really well. Oh and my name is actually Anita, I used the valley I live in as part of my craftsy name.
