It is quite difficult to photograph bags covered in PVC effectively – too many reflections. Here’s another view:
This bag has a hard structured base with purse feet, and under the front flap there is a pocket. The flap closes with velcro.
Inside the bag is an expandable pocket with flap on one side, and a divided pocket on the other.
I’ve added a key leash (as always!) and the adjustable webbing strap has a shoulder pad. The pattern also has instructions for making a laptop sleeve.
Another great pattern from Nicole Mallalieu Design! I’m not sure what difficulty rating Nikki has given this one, but I reckon that most intermediate sewers could make it with a little patience. This bag is a good size because even if you don’t have a laptop it fits folders nicely (or lots of other stuff, which I always seem to have).
The gorgeous green fabric was a gift from Kirsty and the interior fabrics were a mixture from my stash (I can’t even remember where some of them came from). I bought the PVC at Spotlight – it’s with the tablecloths – and the bias binding was purchased satin binding. Thanks again Nikki for the fun of testing out the pattern!
