My first two bag patterns, the Dear Watson and Matsuri bags, are great for all-day outings, but I usually like to travel light when I'm doing everyday errands. The biography bag measures 9½” H x 9½” W x 2” D, so you can easily carry your essentials along with an e-reader or a novel. I find that when I need to get up and go, it's nice to have a large front pocket to quickly tuck my book or phone into, which is why I love the front pocket so much.
My pattern testers made some great bags that I wanted to share with you. Erica (@skynme2) made her bag with an adorable Cotton + Steel patchwork pocket. Fussy cutting really pays off here!
Nicole (@nf_merritts) used a combination of Cotton + Steel and Anna Maria Horner prints for her Biography Bag. She even added some lovely hand stitching to the flowers on her front pocket.
