The Lombard Street Bag With Patterns Giveaway Link

Finally my second custom order finished and I'm so pleased with this one. It's not a particularly difficult bag but there are loads of pockets as usual with Christine's designs LOLL so it's a bit time consuming but well worth the effort. The lady I made it for had seen the one I tested for Christine but wasn't keen on the velvety fabric so together we chose different fabric. She wanted a bag for her tablet and loved this design.

Christine is having a fabulous giveaway on her blog so make sure you go to the bottom of this post for the link and details.

Sorry for a photo heavy post. Just blame Christine for adding so many pockets to show you LOLLL

I used upholstery fabric for this bag and the alternative I have to soft and stable is a little firmer plus it's shower resistant so there's no worry of the tablet getting wet if it rains.

This is the pocket for the tablet.

Main zipper closure.

The other side of the bag has two slanted pockets and a hidden zipper pocket along with another pocket inside for a cell phone.

This is the hidden zipper pocket.

Inside the main bag there are another four slip pockets.

I put hubby's tablet in the front red pocket to show you how much space there is. Funny how you can only see the dust on it in photos. I'll have to show him.

This is the cell phone pocket.

That's alot of pockets!!!!! No excuse for being unorganized with this bag.

Before I rush off onto my next sewing project I want to tell you about a GIVEAWAY that Christine is having as part of the Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway. It's well worth entering becasue if you win you get to choose 3, yes thats right, 3 of any of her patterns from her pattern shop. Here's the link CHRISTINE'S PATTERN GIVEAWAY.

    1. Hi and thanks for stopping by. If you can't sew then it is a bit short notice LOLL maybe you could start learning with an easy tote. Once you start you'll be hooked.
