This bag is a subtle nod to Doctor Who. It’s big and blue, but it’s bigger on the inside. And, I’ll be toting around the Doctor Who scarf (commission) in it as I work on it.
I didn’t use a pattern, just a general “I know how to make a zipper pouch and I know how to make a tote bag so I can figure out how to put those things together” project.
Everything but the webbing for the straps was from stash (woo!). To give the bag some structure, I quilted the main panels to some heavy interfacing and quilt batting. That did not go so well, as the pinwale corduroy has some stretch to it…lots of bunching that was, thankfully, mostly hidden by the bottom panel and the pockets.
There are two outside pockets and two inside zipper pockets. The lining is a space print and the inner pockets are lined in book/library fabric…see, bigger on the inside and loaded with ‘weapons.’ The outer pockets are lined in a great grey/cream print with anoles and poppies.
It’s 18" wide x 13" tall x 6" deep.
