The Adventure Bag **has just been released by Mamma Can Do It and for being part of their Facebook Group you can get it for free with a code (check out the pinned post) otherwise it’s currently on sale.
I got to test* this tote bag which comes in medium or large and best of all it’s reversible. There is also the option of colour-blocking and since everything is a rectangular shape, you don’t have to print the pattern as a cut chart is provided. This is a beginner friendly bag, really quick to sew, and instructions are accompanied with great photographs and descriptions. Although a medium weight woven in recommended, a lighter fabric can be used but is probably best interfaced.
I used Montreaux Printed Drill Black Stripe (100% cotton) and Hot pink drill (100% cotton) for the exterior, with white broadcloth (100% cotton) for the interior. I chose not to make mine reversible. I have just started working again since having my baby and made this as my lunch bag. The medium is perfect to fit a lunchbox, fruit, notebook and the all important coffee mug.
The large bag is great as a beach bag or overnight bag whilst the medium size bag would make a great library bag or gift bag, just fill it with goodies for the recipient.
*The pattern was provided to me free of charge for testing but all opinions expressed are my own and I received a copy of the finalised pattern for taking part.
