I’ve started work on my partner’s Bag of Talent….
and I have to say, I’m not thrilled with the directions (they seem a bit confusing, but maybe it will sort itself out as I start sewing more of the bag). I would have opted for a different pattern, but I already have everything cut out so I’m feeling stuck.
I have already made a slight change to the pattern – adding a utensil pocket to the lining of the bag. It’s difficult to see in the photo below since the print is so busy (she likes skull fabric so I thought this would be a fun lining), but I made an interior pocket that can hold a fork, knife, and spoon with a larger area that will allow her to put in ‘extras’ like salt, pepper, hand sanitizer, etc. I always think these things just get lost inside lunch bags and keeps them out of the way when you’re packing you lunch or snack.
