There is an awesome local quilt shop here in St. Louis called Janie Lou. They had a class with Casey York who taught her Ginormous Tote bag over two Saturdays. Needing a big bag to carry all of my sewing supplies to sew-ins, I quickly jumped on board.

This bag is gargantuan and I love it! It’s so easy to make, it just takes a bit of time to quilt the exterior and make the straps.

I had been eyeing the Sew Together Bag pattern for a few months, but having heard it was a little difficult to construct, I was kind of intimidated to try it. Then, I saw that The Quilt Barn had a sew along for it and I finally couldn’t hold myself back anymore.

The construction on this bag is super genius! And thanks to the sew along, the instructions weren’t hard at all. The inside is pretty fun:

Comma is one of my all-time favorite fabric lines! Can’t get enough…

I’ve made three more of these so far, but one of them went to my mom as a Mother’s Day gift and I forgot to take photos of it. And the other two (yes, two!) went to my son to hold all of his Imaginext figures. If I can get them emptied for long enough, I may be able to get some photos…

 

I use this last bag as my everyday purse and couldn’t be happier with it. Plus, I made it with Comma. “Nuff said.

My hubby helped me add a few zippers (He’s kind of a genius with the welt pockets… Don’t tell him I said that.)

We added a zipper on the back outside and one on the interior.
