Lobstahs--perfect for the summertime. This is a bag I made for myself this weekend. It's *huge* and should work well everywhere I need to go this summer. The pattern I used was from Sew Sweetness, the "Locked and Loaded Bag," available from Sara's online shop. The bag was straightforward to assemble, though it was quite time consuming with all the interfacing. It's well worth the time investment to make a professionally-finished bag. One change I made was to use a magnetic snap for the flap closure instead of the twist lock. No real preference, other than I had magnetic snaps already on hand.
Here are a few more pictures.
The fabric took on a slightly distressed look after washing. I like it. A lot a lot a lot. It really complements the beachy lobster-ness. I love me some lobstahs.
Knitters are the best! I knit badly, but I love to sew lovely bags to keep their projects, needles and hooks in order. I also teach sewing, and you can find many sewing resources here. Welcome to my blog Dancing Threads RI.
