ta-da! This one was a little more labor intensive than the Weekender. I love how it turned out though, but it took FOREVER. It is also massive. The zipper was a pain, but only because of sewing in such a tight space. There is also an option in the pattern to make a tote with no zipper. It would be a great diaper bag for someone who needs a big one.

That's gorgeous!

MORE labor than the weekender? I have the weekender pattern and it's terrifying to me!

The Weekender took me a bit of time, just because of the piping. The assembly is pretty straight forward, and she does write good directions!

I am going to do another, but the tote. I do love the shape. Can't wait to see other people's version of this bag!

The fabric is all from Joann, got it when it was on sale.

Thank you for sharing where you got the fabric. I always wonder where folks find it...whether its something from their stash or something new.
Piping is daunting. I also have the weekender bag pattern & am dying to make it out of some teal & black Elvis fabric I bought in bulk for the project...but the piping scares me away from it. Maybe after some more experience with piping in general & I'll give it a go.

Amy does a good job in laying out the instructions doesn't she?

don't fear piping! Take Amy's advice and use your zipper foot, I basically used the zipper foot to sew most of this bag together and most of the weekender.

Elvis fabric would rock the weekender! I used pink bird fabric, its obnoxious, but I can spot my carryon right away!
