11  Re: Need help finding pattern/tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by JennasMommy on: February 13, 2008 09:01:32 AM
Love seeing everyones Sanibels Wink. Been drooling over this bag for months.  I sure would love to make one but not sure I am capable (started sewing a few months ago) of making my own pattern and putting a purse like this together..yet. I found this pattern today and was wondering if any of you think it would be easy to turn this bag (top quilted duffle) into a Sanibel. Its suppose to be a duffle bag but I don't see why you couldn't add rectangle sides & bottom (instead of circles), the height and width or the same as the Sanibel. Hobby Lobby has all its Simplicity patterns for 99 cents Grin. Do you think its doable?
~~Thanks, Mary

12  My first bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by JennasMommy on: January 23, 2008 07:59:42 AM
After weeks of searching for the perfect pattern, I finally decided on Amy Butler's Nappy bag. This is my first real project (with a pattern) post and I very proud of it, even with its boo-boos  . I have to admit that I did struggle with a few things that was suppose to be easy but thats how you learn, by doing...right? The exterior fabric was a real pain to work with b/c it unraveled very easily, when I ripped a seam nearly 1/2" of the material frayed  Shocked . In general I would say it was an easy pattern to follow but it was very time consuming. There were over 20 (big) pieces to cut out  . I taught myself alot, how to install a magnetic snap, a reg snap, and how to add a carabiner for my keys. I definitely plan on making more of these down the road, some in a reduced size. I can't wait to show off my bag! Hope you like it!

P.S. Thank you Maggi (magpie0816) for all your help on this project!

6 big pockets on the inside. I omitted the 2 bottle pockets. Can't really see the magnetic snap here. It was surprisingly easy to install too Grin.

I love the idea of a cell pocket on the outside, but with the pattern dimen given you surely wouldn't be able to fit a phone bigger than a Razr in it. I lucked out, my Razr fits perfectly.

Always losing my keys, this key ring with come in use Wink.

Great job! Such a great wallet, so many places to fit everything. Going to have to look into getting that IN STITCHES book. I'm also a AB-holic. I love everything she comes out with. I'm working on her Nappy Bag pattern right now. Has anyone seen her SWEET LIFE bags? The Sanibel is my favorite, but I surely can't afford the 125 pricetag Embarrassed. Hopefully she will come out with this pattern for this bag in the near future..........
