    1. I wish I could have made the cardi! It's from Anthropologie a couple years ago. Someday my goal is to knit a cardigan. :)

  22. Just bought the pattern, yay! :-) Let's see when I get around to make it, it really would be a great diaper bag!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Absolutely lovely!! Purchased along with the 241 tote, can't wait to gather all the materials and make it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. bought it. Now I have only to buy two more patterns and am "up to date" with buying all patterns. :)

  25. Thank you so much for this pattern! I've been on the hunt for a big bag that I can convert into a camera bag for a flight home this summer. It needs to double as a diaper bag, and that's a tall order!

    Is there anyway you would suggest padding one or two of the pockets?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You could definitely pad some of the pockets. I think you'd just have to fully line the pocket and then baste a thin foam or batting in between. :)

  26. I absolutely love this pattern and can't wait to make one for myself. But I'm wondering - do you have a secret for how you pick out so many fabrics that all seem to go so well together? Do you use a collection or just eyeball it? What's your preferred method for fabric shopping?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh thank you! :) I usually don't make projects all from one fabric collection. Most of the time I buy what appeals to me and also pick up a lot of solids/semi-solid fabrics to mix in. As far as the actual shopping goes, I shop online and then when it comes time to make a project I pull from my stash! :)

  27. Any mothers that have made this, would you feel this would be big enough for a nappy-bag/hand-bag? I wouldn't need it for a great deal of things other than a few nappies, change of clothes and my own bits and pieces etc...

    1. I'm a mom! It's definitely roomier and more functional than any diaper bag I ever carried. Check out Spotted Stones Studio's version, she's already using it as a diaper bag. :)

  29. Hi Anna, I would like to buy this pattern for a friend. Is there a way to do that? Thank you!

  38. I'm kinda new at this sewing thing....I have made a few bag and a few other small things. I have never made anything that calls for piping so I have no idea how to do it. Is it hard to do? Would this bag be doable for a somewhat beginner? I love this bag and really want to make myself one but I do t want to buy it and it be to hard for me at this point. Thanks in advance for your help!! *Jessica

    1. It's pretty darn easy! Maybe with a little practice you can have it down pat! I'd say this pattern would be for a confident advanced beginner, possibly intermediate sewist. My runaround bag and 241 tote would be great for a new beginner though!! :)

  40. Hi Anna,
    Just finished my Super Tote and tried to send you pictures on Flickr as you asked at the end of the pattern but for some reason I can't get them to post. I did post one on your FB page. It took a while to make because I was trying to incorporate a lot of different things other people had posted like another outside zippered pocket. Your pattern is so easy to follow & your tutorials online are very clear. Thanks!

  41. I love this pattern!
    And I've made 3 of them and got a lot of response :D

  42. At this point I'm pretty sure I'm just collecting Noodlehead patterns. Gotta have'em! What are you puttin' in the Kool-Aid, girl?!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm making the first one for my cousin's wife. She's just been diagnosed with thyroid cancer after fighting breast cancer for almost 3 years. (Like so many of us, I show my love with handmade prettiness.) She's the mother of 6 and always on the go. Her oldest tells me she's a purse and tote kind of a girl and loves showing off her latest finds to fit all of her "mom stuff" in. Thanks again for a phenomenal pattern and for sharing it with us! Incidentally- Noodlehead is the first blog I ever came across. The words "blog" and "tutorial" did not exist in my world before seeing your cute little wallet and pouch tuts. You are very talented and very inspiring! All the best:) - fellow sewist-Colleen

  44. Hi Anna! I'm writting you from Paraguay, I'm in love with your patterns and today I decided to buy this one to try, does the only way to purchase is by Paypal? Cause we don't have that here :(
    Do you have a Etsy store or another place where I could use my credit card to pay for it? Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hello - fell in love with this tote when I saw one a friend made, so I bought the pattern and made my own. It's the perfect size and comfortable to carry. I was impressed with how well the pattern pieces fit together and how clear the instructions were. Thank you - I plan to make more of these, they are really fun to put together.

  46. LOve the look of this tote, but I would like something more of a purse size...does this had modifications for size variation?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm sorry, there isn't size modification instructions, but I have seen many people print the pattern at a certain percentage to downsize it (85% or so). Or I have other more purse size patterns in my shop if you want to take a look: http://www.noodle-head.com/p/patterns.html
