A new bag

I made myself a new bag! I've been seeing lots of Poolside Totes popping up recently on blogs and Instagram and I've been itching to make one for myself. Yesterday that stars aligned for me and I got a couple of hours sewing time.

I used what I had in my stash, and as a result my bag is a bit floppy, but I think it's better that way because it's my new work bag, and I can squash it in my locker more easily while I'm working :)

I had planned to have the lining a different fabric but I got distracted while cutting and had cut the lining out before I realised what I was doing! I kind of wish I'd made the zippy pocket version, but I'll definitely be making another so I'll do that next time.

It all loaded up ready for my nightshift tonight, and it's so roomy there's still room for my lunch box! Yay!

  2. Oooh yum! I reckon you'll be the envy on your shift tonight! Jxo

  3. Love it! It is proving the bag of the season :)

  4. Gorgeous Poolside! I love mine, great size and I have another planned too! I did zippy pocket one side and open pocket the other, I'd like a hidden zipper pocket on he inside too! Xx
