The lovely Anna of Noodlehead released her latest bag pattern on Friday, the 241 Tote. I snatched up the pattern right away and decided to make it my weekend project. I've said it before, and I'll say it again-- I'm not a pattern person. I have a very hard time following directions and tend to either give up on them or ignore them completely and try to do my own thing. But not this time. In fact, this was the first bag I've ever made from a pattern.
Anna definitely knows what she's doing. The pattern itself was written perfectly. Not a single error to be found! The curved construction was challenging enough to keep me on task. There are two options-- I chose the option with the exterior side pockets for my first try.
