I have been sewing up a storm this past few days. I wanted a tote/carry-on bag with lots of pockets for our upcoming trip to England. Something that I could manage easily, get all my airplane necessities into (books, knitting, neck pillow, travel papers, etc.) and still be able to use as an all-purpose bag for shopping (Liberty of London, here I come!) and trekking around. This is McCall's 5871:
I am very pleased with how it turned out. Setting in the side pieces was a bit of a wrestling match due to the stiffness of the multi-layers but I won! The pattern is very easy to follow, well-written. I didn't use as many different fabrics as the pattern called for as I felt four was plenty.
