Sidekick Tote Bag tested for Noodlehead


Hope you all had a good weekend. I was busy sewing a test bag for Anna at Noodlehead and it's a beauty.
Here's the link to her blog so you can take a look at hers.

It won't be on sale until the end of the week so check back then to make sure you get yours.
It really is a lovely bag with a recessed zipper, inside and outside pocket. You can choose from two bag sizes and two styles of outside pockets plus the strap is adjustable. What more could you want.

For those of you who are visual sewers her pattern is perfect. Loads of lovely photos and clear instructions. No wonder I finished so soon.

Ok here's mine. I chose to make the larger version.

I used upholstery fabric as the pattern said denim would work so figured it wouldn't be too thick.
The binding is a very thin pleather to match the pleather strap.

The way the zip was put in was also new for me. It's sewn into the lining.

Great bag and a good size. I'd love to make one in denim some time.
