Description

The pattern is actually called ‘A Day in The Park Backpack Tote’ by Liesl + Co. It was offered as a package when I bought a pattern from Oliver + s for my son. The design of the straps and two O rings is very clever, making the bag can be carried in two ways. The inside features a zippered pocket and three compartment pockets. The instruction is very clear and easy to follow. I really enjoyed making the bag, and it really came up faster than I thought it would be.

The outer fabric is French linen in yellow with big white flowers, and the lining is purple nylon fabric from Echino, both are so very pretty. My only regret is not using sturdy enough interfacing so my bag is slouchier than the design intended to be. But all my bags are slouchy anyway so I kinda used to it. However, I’m planning to make the bag again in sturdier material.

I carried the bag to our mountain walking trip today!

    I love its slouchy look! I had to go and look for the pattern, but it appears to be out of print. /cry!

    The straps are inventive, and beautifully sewn.

    It’s the color of the lining gets you…MORE fun points! [It must be your week!]
