my go anywhere bag

Hopefully you’re not too sick of seeing my bags.  :)  This is my Go Anywhere Bag that I’m keeping. All I can say is that I was more than happy to transfer my belongings into it as soon as I finished sewing it up.  And you might wonder if I keep all these bag for myself.  I don’t.  I didn’t even keep a 241 tote, one went to my friend Rossie, the other to my mom (whom I’ve finally decided, has enough bags).  I like sharing what I make with people I care about though, so it’s always a good feeling to be able to hand something I’ve made over to a friend.

[lined with linen and handmade linen piping on each pocket]

I had hoarded this echino camera print for too long waiting for just the right project.  I really love using this bag, my favorite part has to be the divided front pocket, I haven’t yet lost my phone or sunglasses or keys in it yet.

Um, well, I guess I should say that I did ‘lose’ them in the back pocket for a while, but then I figured it all out.  I had a bit of a panic attack at the post office thinking I had lost the mailbox keys.  Whew.

Anyway, hope you all have a great weekend! We’re off to Minneapolis to celebrate my nephew Grant’s first birthday.

    Oooh, yours is so pretty! I pulled new fabrics for a 241, but then I got distracted by your go anywhere and now I’m torn! Maybe I’ll just have to make both? :)

    LOVE your boots btw!

    That’s a lovely bag! I can see why you’d want to keep that one. Love the cameras – and – unrelated – but I love the boots too!

  13. Kelly O. 09.16.2011 at 10:04 am #

    love the fabric you chose for this one! I’m having a tough time deciding what to choose but I think I’ve narrowed it down and am ordering today :0)

  14. Carolyn 09.16.2011 at 10:42 am #

    Another great version of this bag! The fabric is gorgeous and I love the piping accent. Now I feel compelled to make one with piping!

  15. chris 09.16.2011 at 10:49 am #

    LOVE the fabric, Anna. So glad you kept it for you. :)

  16. Karen P. 09.16.2011 at 10:55 am #

    Another great bag, as always! I really need one now!
    Love the boots as well, you must tell us where they are from!

  17. Rebecca 09.16.2011 at 11:05 am #

  20. Little Bluebell (Adrianne) 09.16.2011 at 11:42 am #

    Squeee!!! I LOVE this version. I wish I had one just like it. If I saw it in a store I would snatch it right up. : ) I picked out Loulouthi for mine. I’ve got the pattern cut. I hope I have time this weekend to work on it.

  21. Lindsay Conner 09.16.2011 at 11:44 am #

    Glad you found one to keep! :) It looks awesome in that print.

  22. Rosa 09.16.2011 at 12:24 pm #

  23. Miranda 09.16.2011 at 12:59 pm #

    It looks fantastic! The cameras are great. What you used for the lining? Have fun at the birthday party, I live about 15 minutes north of Minneapolis :)

  24. Emily 09.16.2011 at 1:07 pm #

    What a perfect bag! You look gorgeous in these pictures. Happy weekend!

    Love the bag, Love the boots!!!

  26. QuiltyGirl 09.16.2011 at 1:42 pm #

    It looks great in that print! I also have not lost my keys or phone yet. :) (Unless you count yesterday am when I was trying to lock the door to take Addy to school, and realized my keys were in the basement where she had been playing with them. Not the fault of my bag, though!)

  27. Christie @ A Lemon Squeezy Home 09.16.2011 at 2:19 pm #

    Oooh, I love it! It’s so great! That fabric is amazing!

  28. Erin 09.16.2011 at 4:37 pm #

    One of my favorite prints ever! Such a cool bag… Great work! Again!

    I love that fabric. This bag is really great. Have a wonderful time in Minneapolis, one of my favorite cities!

  30. Wag Doll 09.16.2011 at 7:23 pm #

    Love the fabric!

  31. Stitchin' time 09.16.2011 at 7:45 pm #

    Lol, that’s why I follow you – for the bag photo procession! It gives me great ideas for presents as what female doesn’t need another bag? With the mailbox keys maybe you should incorporate a little d-ring on the inside side seam and attach them with a little clip. Hidden but handy :).

  32. Rachel Hauser 09.16.2011 at 10:14 pm #

    A very worthy cut into that iconic fabric. Looks great on you! I just bought some cool black/white fabric from the Miscellany collection. Black in white is really calling me right now.

  33. Mauri 09.16.2011 at 10:56 pm #

    love the bag! And good for you for keeping one for yourself.. I seem to never do that- I like to give my home-mades away.
    Have fun in Minneapolis- I had not made the connection you are a mid-westerner :) My homelands :)

  34. skirtastop 09.16.2011 at 11:27 pm #

    love that camera fabric, and good job keeping one for yourself! it’s awesome. :)

  35. Kirsten N 09.17.2011 at 4:32 am #

    Such a cool bag and I love it in the Echino fabric!

  36. Carla 09.17.2011 at 8:39 am #

    Love it! I seriously need to make me one of those bags. Awesome boots by the way….

  37. MaryAnnB 09.17.2011 at 12:56 pm #

    Love the bag!! Love the fabric, still trying to find some of the same for myself…only seem to be able to locate it in purple or teal… I’ve cut one of these out for my daughter for her diaper bag for the twins. She loved the size and the pockets when I showed her your samples here!

  38. pasqueflower 09.17.2011 at 4:22 pm #

    Phenomenal bag! LOVE the fabric, and the fact that it’s so roomy AND has divided pockets!

  39. Rachel 09.17.2011 at 11:44 pm #

    Wonderful! It’s huge! I love the fabric you chose too.

    And your boots are fabulous! 😉

  40. Tori 09.18.2011 at 12:49 am #

    i don’t have a back door closet. just hooks on the wall behind the door. so i have room for maybe two bags in summer probably zero in winter. i do see your bag tutorials and samples and wonder where you put them all. mostly because they are so lovely i don’t know how you’d ever give any away :)

  50. Nikki 09.23.2011 at 12:35 pm #

    I am so obsessed with your bag patterns. I LOVE them!!!

  51. Le Petite Hoot 09.23.2011 at 4:14 pm #

    Your Go Anywhere Bag really has such a great shape! I love it! It looks so versatile, too. You can dress it up or down. So pretty!
