It will come as no surprise that I love sewing bags. They're funky, easy to personalise, and practical...or at least they should be. I have come across a few bags that look great, but lack a certain usefulness. Perhaps there are no pockets, thin/weak straps, or it doesn't hold it's shape. When I saw the Stand Up & Tote Notice pattern, from Australian designer Two Pretty Poppets, I suspected I was onto a winner. It turns out, I suspected correctly.
|The outside pockets are great for books, mobiles or casually draping Ray Bans.|
|Every bag needs a slug holder.|
It has 6 pockets...yes, six!!! Four on the inside and two on the outside. This makes it a perfect craft bag. I'm already planning another small one for knitting/crochet and a large for quilting....I suppose I should make a medium too, so it doesn't feel left out.
|Check out all that space!!!|
In addition to the awesomeness of the pattern, there is also a Stand Up & Tote Notice competition in the Two Pretty Poppets Facebook Group with heaps of fantastic prizes up for grabs.
|I love my new bag|
Lisa, the talent behind Two Pretty Poppets, is an absolute delight to deal with. I highly recommend visiting her various social media platforms and checking out her great patterns. I promise you won't be disappointed.
