In Bags & Accessories, In my shop, Sewing Pattern

Yesterday I shared with you my new bag pattern, The Field Study Tote! Today I’m showing off the great bags made by the women that test sewed the pattern for me. I love my testers! They are always full of suggestions and catch little mistakes that can happen when I’m writing out the steps. They did a great job and, as always, I love seeing their fabric choices.


Angie FST

Angie F of Daisysaid used a wool blend plaid and solid. It looks so cozy!


Pamela FST

Pamela of Sovanisa made her Field Study Tote in a graphic striped canvas with a faux suede accent. I love the combination.



Linda H used pretty floral print and solid bottom-weight cottons for her bag. Very classy looking.



Jennifer W used a Paris themed print quilting cotton combined with some denim she upcycled from a thrifted pair of jeans. Nice touch!

If you missed yesterday’s post,  I made my version of the bag with a wool plaid for the main fabric, an olive green corduroy for the bottom accent and brown waxed canvas for the handles and tabs. The wool is from Heaven’s to Betsy and the fine wale cord is from Robert Kaufman. Waxed canvas can be found online on Etsy as well as at Gather Here. The pattern for the Field Study Tote is available  in my Etsy shop and my Craftsy Pattern Shop.

Have you sewn with wool much for bags? Stay tuned for an upcoming post with tips for sewing with wool and resources to find great wool fabrics.

    This is a great pattern–I love the waxed canvas and wool combination; it’s nice to have some good options in bags that are feminine and durable in style!

    How do I become a tester for you so that I get the inside scoop! ??!
