The Running with Scissors tote is finally finished. This will be a gift for a friend, but I think I will make another one. I wasn’t 100% happy with the process. I think if I make another the process will go more smoothly.
I think the ByAnnie pattern was written really well. I do really need to get hold of the video that Mrs. K bought for me. I think it will tell me why I have leftover pieces. 😉
This bag has some interesting features. An add on project that comes with the bag is a pad that can be used to protect your tools from rubbing against each other when the bag is closed.
You already know that I used the center facing with thread holders on the 4 Zip Organizer. I learned about those in this pattern.
The bag also has a lot of zippers. This wasn’t much of a challenge for me since I have gotten used to dealing with zippers. In this case, however, I had to move the zipper pull from one zipper to another. That was a hassle, but it worked out in the end.
I cut the stripes wrong so the viewer doesn’t get the full effect. I want to try that again. Because of my fabric choices this bag came out a lot more Hallowe’en -y looking than I intended. I hope the giftee doesn’t mind and notices the Philip Jacobs fabric rather than the Hallowe’en look. I also need to figure out why I have extra pattern pieces. LOL!

Perhaps the extra fabric was from the flap protector that you didn’t do? I have no idea, was just guessing.
I think it is autumnal looking, not Halloween-y.
I’ll have to figure it out. I am supposed to have access to the video, but haven’t gotten that figured out yet. When I do, it should explain all.
The fabrics you used look great! The person receiving it will love it!
Thank you so much for your kind words!
This looks so professional! I wish I had the patience to make these.
I am not sure it takes patience. It did take organization and determination.
I don’t think it reads as Halloween-y at all, just peppy & fresh, ie Phillip Jacobs! The gift-ee is going to Love It.
Thanks for your vote of confidence! I appreciate it. I can’t wait to send it along. I just want to show it at the BAM meeting on Saturday.
