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. 

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!

    Totally love that bag! I love the inside with the zip pocket. The binding around the top is going to make this easy and sturdy. I’ll be back Monday :)

    Love it Anna! Can’t wait to get a pattern. We’re headed down to your neck of the woods today to visit the farm where our CSA comes from (Rushford Village). Love that purple fabric! And of course the Far, Far away print! 😀

    LOVE it!! Totally perfect for running errands – and one strap – even better! Can’t wait to see your pattern. I’m thinking of starting to do some patterns for little girls clothing (I just don’t even know where to begin). Love the Heather Ross too :-). Go girl!

    Another practical, stylish, unique addition to the Noodlehead range of wonderful bags. You’re on a total roll! x

  22. Leah 09.18.2010 at 7:56 pm #

    Super cute! I actually sew a bag very similar to this, only instead of a making a pleat I gather the sides and do a tie to close. Looking forward to more fun stuff!

  23. Trish 09.18.2010 at 8:50 pm #

    beautiful! The inner pocket was a sweet surprise.

  24. sophie 09.18.2010 at 10:03 pm #

    I love that gathered strap/handle, so pretty. And that purple fabric is amazing, what is it?

  25. Sew Much Ado 09.18.2010 at 11:44 pm #

    That is so adorable Anna! I love the gathers, especially in the lining, it’s so feminine. Hehe, now you’re committed to Monday!.

    Thank you for always making cute things that I can understand how to make. You are awesome!

    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!

  34. hart44 09.22.2010 at 11:27 am #

    Wow! I just love the fabric you have used to make these wonderful bags :)
    I cann’t wait till payday so I can get the pattern :)
