Runaround Bag

This is my latest bag design I’ve been working on, well, just about forever.  Not really, but when I was writing up my fold-over bag tutorial, this was another design I sketched out thinking I would make it my first pattern.  So things don’t always go as planned, but I’m really happy with the results, and happy that this will be my second pattern!

I’m hoping to have things all wrapped up by this weekend so I can get it ready for sale starting on Monday [available in my shop].

I’m calling it the Runaround Bag because I think it’s the perfect size for running errands and regular day to day stuff.  It’ll hold all your goodies, but not so many that your should will feel like it’s breaking off!

The pattern includes full size pattern pieces, two pocket options, and a magnetic snap option.  I loved making these bags!

I’ll just show you a few sneak peeks to tease you, have a great weekend!

    Those are really nice bags, Anna! I think the best part of this bag pattern is the binding tape – such a pretty addition! Oh and I love the zipper pocket too! That is necessary for a little necessary items like iPhone and keys! I can think of so many ways to use this bag! Love it!
