Poolside Tote – Bag of the Month

This is my newest design!  I’m so excited to finally show you.  This is for the Bag of the Month Club (if you need to refresh your memory, the whole scoop is over here).

I’m definitely excited to be able to share it here.  And of course to take it to the pool this summer!

If you haven’t signed up for the Bag of the Month Club, you still can!  There’s just one month left but you can get all the patterns right away (except you’ll have to wait for June’s design).

After the club is over the Poolside Tote will be available like a regular PDF pattern on my site (and in print shortly after). I’ll be sure to let you know when. And will fill you in on all the juicy details.

This tote has a couple fun exterior pocket options, a zippered pocket and a slip pocket.  I love being able to have a really big bag just to pile things in on our way out the door. I’ll probably be sewing up a few other versions and posting them in a few weeks, too. Can’t resist!

There you go! Thanks for joining along, your support and friendship means so much to me.

Also, I loved reading all your fun trips planned for the summer!  Lots of babies being born and moving and trips to the beach!  Oh and sewing, too, of course!

The winner of the Arizona Fat Quarter bundle was Taya,
who said: “Well, I’m not sure if it qualifies as “fun” but we’re moving house this summer. What will be fun is having some space to start sewing again!”

Congrats Taya!!  Have fun sewing with these in your new space!

    We carried ours to the farmer’s market and the zoo this weekend and when we got home my husband commented on how it’s a “genius design” with the elbow cut-out! I think if you have the boys loving it too it’s a clear winner 😉

    I love the bag! And it’s size looks perfect! I have one large bag I made last winter. It’s huge. But I am always amazed that I manage to fill it every single time!

  29. love the simplicity of this one and how you can highlight a special fabric on the strap!

    This looks like the perfect summer beach bag! Just wondering how much fabric you need to make it so I can get everything organised for when the pattern is released?

  42. Sue Connell says:

    I’m confused. The comments are from 2014, but the Bag of the Month Club seems to be for 2015, at least it is posted on the Noodlehead blog in 2015. I would like to get the Messenger Bag pattern, but don’t know if it was available in July 2014 or will be available in July 2015 and how to get it. (download version.) Thanks. The bags look great!
