Sophia Carry-All

Pattern: Sophia Carry-All
Fabric: Nigella Collection by Amy Butler
Notes: Yikes. This one is tricky. It's nearly as much work as the Weekender Bag. I have read online that people have added a stiff interfacing to the main panels to give the bag more structure. It's a little slumpy. It's also hugely difficult stitching the bottom corners where the piping from the base the piping from the sides meet. The Weekender bag only has piping around the main panels, not the base. The interior is very floppy and needs to be stitched in place. I also spaced out and forgot to sew the dividing lines on the interior pocket so they are two enormous gaping pockets. But I'm very proud of myself for getting through this without any assistance.
