Another Multi-Tasker Tote!

Finally delivered this bag to a friend who was in desperate need of a new diaper bag.  (I also totally forgot to take pictures of it until I was outside her apartment.  Yay! for camera phones!)  I've had it finished for a while, but I was hung up on a few tweaks to the pattern, and had to stare at the bag for a while while I figured out what to do.

I, of course, used the Multi-Tasker Tote pattern, because it's awesome, and added a couple elastic pockets to the inside.  I switched out the interfacing for fusible fleece because it stands up so much nicer, but isn't super stiff, and outlined the butterflies and flowers in gold thread.

The big tweak was that purple pouch inside.  She wanted a place to pack an extra set of clothes, but she wanted it to be removable.  It seems obvious now to just add a couple buttons to the bag lining and buttonholes to a velcro pouch, but I had too many ideas at first and couldn't settle.  So I just made the whole bag and left it to the end.

My favorite part is the key chain.  I found clip hardware at Joann's and now have to add the strap to every bag I've ever made.

  1. Love that removable pouch - a super addition!

  2. super cute bag! It looks so roomy and versatile, and the key chain is genius! I'm forever losing my keys in the bottom of my bag!

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

    1. Thanks! I"m the same way. I'll have to order the clips in bulk. :)

  3. Well done! Great idea with the removable pouch.

    1. The pouch is a great idea, though not mine. I'm definitely going to add it to my list of options, and eventually make one bag with all the little additions I've learned to make.


Go on! Comment! I love reading what you think! -m
