I purchased the Sew Together Bag pattern to create the ‘Sew Together’ Bag written by Sew Demented about a year ago after a customer via Etsy asked if I could create a multi pocket bag to help organize her medicine. I googled to find a pattern for a multi pocket pouch and found the ‘Sew Together’ Bag pattern. Being that the pattern is copyrighted, I contacted the author of the pattern, Michelle Tucker, and requested permission to sell the completed bag. I was granted permission at that time, but for whatever reason I never ended up even opening the pattern let alone begin to create it. This pattern was filed with with the other patterns on my ‘to do’ list until last week. I was kind of intimidated by the pattern. I had read and heard the bag was difficult or complicated to make so that made it so much easier to put on the back burner of things to make. I had heard many went through lots of sewing machine needles attempting to make this bag but unless I did something wrong, which I don’t think I did, the bag construction wasn’t difficult at all. My test for whether I did follow the pattern correctly would be to test if it works and it sure does.
The pattern and bag appears to be designed to hold sewing essentials such as scissors, thread snips, etc. for those who sew at retreats or get togethers. I don’t sew outside of my studio so for me, the bag was designed more for carrying essentials while travelling. It’s the perfect size to hold cosmetics, medicine, toiletries and other vacation essentials. The three zippered pockets plus the space between the pockets keeps everything neat and organized, perfect for those who have organization issues 🙂
The true test though for whether something I create is a hit is if my thirteen year old daughter likes it or more importantly, wants one. She really wanted one of the these bags so I made her one using the Figures Collection by Brigitte Heiland for Zen Chic for Moda.
Dear daughter is pleased and now has a ‘cool’ travel bag for her outings.
These bags will be listed in my Etsy shop soon but in the meantime, if you are interested in purchasing one, simply send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day!
