Hang About Toiletry Bag

Finally I can show you my Hang About Toiletry Bag and give you details of a great offer.

The Hang About Toiletry Bag is part of a trio designed by three designers two of whom I test for so know they are brilliant and the other I haven't had the pleasure of testing for but her bag looks fabulous so I'm pretty sure her pattern is just as good as the other two. The designers are Lisa of Two Pretty Poppets who is the designer of this one I tested, Kylie of Little Moo Designs who designed The Tiny Essentials Tote Bag and Rachel of RLR Creations.

This is the mens version, and a ladies version will be released soon after this offer has ended.
The hardest part was trying to choose manly fabrics as most of mine are florals but I thought this one would work.

Lisa's pattern was brilliant as usual. Easy to follow instructions with photos for the visual sewer like me. I kind of panicked when I saw all that piping and although it's not perfect I'm happy with the result.

My favourite feature of this toiletry bag is that you can hang it up. Check the photos further down and you will see there are three options for how you can hang your bag.
The pattern uses a mesh for under the flap but you can also use clear plastic or fabric like I did.

Another zipper pocket on the outside of the bag leaving the main compartment free to fit in loads of stuff.

I did make a slight mistake here can you see what it is?
Yes I put my zipper in the wrong way. Although it's fine if your left handed LOL

A nice large main compartment for you guys to add things guys add to their toiletry bags LOLL

You can hang it this way on a towel rail.

Or this way on a door knob. 

Or this way on a hook. Love it. There's one thing that really bothers me when I go somewhere and I have to take a toiletry bag, no matter how clean the bathroom is I really don't like having to place my bag on the counter so this is perfect.

I know you'll want to buy this and the other two in the set of the Total Toiletry Trio Pattern and you can find it HERE on Craftsy but hurry becasue for a limited time the pattern is on SALE.

Have fun sewing your trio set. I for one want to make this one again but this time in girly fabric.
