When I saw this pattern on Etsy I realised that it was just what I had been looking for, a Posh Project Bag, once I’d bought the pattern I was eager to get on and sew it
Piecing together the pattern after printing was a little tricky but I managed it ok

I love the detail, the pleats make for a special look and I just love the button closure which completes the straps
I machine embroidered on of my logos onto the pocket, the magnetic snaps work so well here too
I can fit plenty inside, I’m crocheting a blanket in case you’re interested
I love all the topstitching, the bag was fiddly to cut out and I had to go very slowly around all the curves and then there was all the snipping and clipping of the curves
As with my other bags, it is fully interfaced, I love a crisp finish to my work
My only concern is that it might be a little shallow…I am going to adjust the pattern a bit to make the inside pocket slightly bigger and the depth of the bag about 5cms deeper
What do you think? I think I might be adding this little beauty to my shop when I’ve made the adjustments…
