Its in the Bag

If you reside in New Zealand you would be forgiven if you thought this was about some 80's Tv show, when in fact its a pattern review.

For some time now I have been meaning to make some more bags for myself and others, but there never seems to be enough time in the day. So when Jenny from Seamingly Smitten Patterns sent out the call for pattern reviewers for her Fall 2014 pattern tour and giveaway and one of the items happened to include a bag, how could I resist.

The Slouch bag as it is aptly called is suitable for the  beginner sewer, all instructions and fabric requirements are all laid out in an easy to read manner, with lots of images to show you exactly what is required.

Inside the bag
The bag has a magnetic clasp and an external and an internal pocket, lots of room for all those bits and pieces. I made my bag with the extra long strap for across body wearing but it can also be worn on the shoulder. It was quite hard choosing fabrics, only because I had so many to choose from but love this combination of colours. 

This bag could easily be made reversible, just omit the clasp and another option for the strap would be to add a slider so that the strap  can be adjusted. If you like tassels and fringes this option is also included in the instructions. I can see many of these bags in my near future, one for each season perhaps.
