This bag features three large pockets and can be made in a large and small version. The pockets are created by overlapping the fabric in front and back in an ingenious design that only uses one pattern piece. Each view shows off a different opportunity for contrasting different prints from one product line or multiple complimentary fabrics. View 1 is a simple bag with no base. View 2 is roughly the same size but does include a base and View 3 includes a base but is smaller.
The integrated strap can be adjustable with the use of D-rings or buttons, or can be fixed at one length. All in all this is a very simple bag to make and the pattern offers many options to make the perfect purse or tote.
The pattern includes extensive use of photographs and drawings to illustrate instructions along with a complete template for each size bag.

Kay blogs about her craft at http://www.stitchingtimes.blogspot.com. She says, "I learned to crochet, knit and sew at my mother's knee. She could do it all from sewing to tatting, crochet, knitting, embroidery. I learned to knit when I was about 6 or 7 and just never stopped learning new crafts and techniques."
