The Abigail Bag


Yesterday I posted that I was going to show you the Abigail Bag I tested for Christine and thought it may be a few days but luckily for me I can do that today. I was busting a gut trying not to post. LOLLL

Christine is one amazing designer to have come up with this one. You wouldn't believe the amount of pockets it has. Perfect to keep everything organized and in it place. If I ever loose anything in this bag it will because I've forgotten which pocket I put it in. LOLL

As you can see from the above photo it has two pockets on the front and two on the sides.

Either side of the main zip compartment there are another two roomy pockets with a magnetic button closure.

This is the inside view.

And if that still isn't enough pockets for you then there's still more. Open up the zipper and you will find another zippered side pocket and two slip pockets and a pen pocket.

Is that enough pockets for you, if not then may I suggest you take a suitcase shopping with you. LOLLL

Now I just know you will all be dying to get your hands on this pattern so you can go to Chris's blog at

Chris has made three in different bright coloured fabrics and also she has a very pretty feature on her front pockets that I didn't sew on mine. If your thinking it looks too difficult, it is an advanced bag, don't worry there is a ton of step by step photos in the pattern so you're not only getting a pattern but also sewing lessons. LOLL

Thanks Christine, this has got to be the best one I've tested for you yet.
