My Legendary Bag

This is my Simply Legendary bag and it's the bag I'm carrying this week. Loaded with my Diaper Savvy coordinate, colored pencil pouches, snacks, wallet, etc. it's my best mommy bag ever!

I originally designed this bag below for my Mom. She looooves pockets and long straps! She also loves cup holders in her car, but that's a story for another day (Hi Mom!). I used to be so scared to sew pockets in my bags (I don't know why) but my sweet mother helped me step out of that zone. Now we're working on zippers...give me some time, I'll get there.
This bag was a hit at market because of it's pocket overload...there's one in the front (as you can see) and then inside I've layered them so there are 5 pockets...yes, FIVE! A cell pocket, two bottle or longer pockets, a larger pocket for wallets and such, and then a small pocket for gum or keys. Store owners also enjoy the versatility of the pattern, allowing you to design your bag with long or short straps.

I've been told over and over that this pattern is simple to follow, especially with it's template pieces....I don't like to be the judge of my pattern's simplicity because well, I designed them and that just wouldn't be fair. So I'll just tell you what I've heard. ;)
This bag below is one of my favorites by far! It's in my shop right now! It's sewn with the longer straps. I think the mix of colors and Sandi's florals work for all seasons. Don't you?

The Simply Legendary Pattern is also available in the shop! If you hurry you might get a
discount! Shhh...

I am SO behind in blogging. I love your bags. They are gorgeous. You go with your bad self and those zippers! Also, I understand how much you miss Roni. You guys have the cutest friendship ever. And YAY YAY YAY for Sawyer! I never used the Baby Bjorn, but I know a lot of people did and with a high success rate. And how cool is Ruger cheering on his little brother? Adorable!
