The pattern comes with three different sizes. I made the smallest and it’s still a very generously-sized bag. The largest would make an awesome carry-on bag for travel!
I learn something new every time I make one of Sara’s patterns. This was my first time working with Pellon Foam Flex and it gave the bag a really nice structured shape without being too stiff. It did take just a little wrestling to get the bag through my sewing machine at times, but it was totally worth it. If I hadn’t made this first, I would never have thought to try foam in my Franken-tote bag. It worked great for that one, too, and I’ll definitely use it again when I want bags that can stand up on their own.
