Pick a Pocket or two...

It took me all day to do this pocket.... well, that and it's calico forerunner, all the pattern drafting and tweakings, note-takings and step-by-step photos (lots of these!).

And it STILL needs refining... more tweakings, more notes and probably another sample.


I'm beginning to wonder if it was such a good idea to introduce a new feature to the Laptop Bag pattern so close to the launch date...?

I'm determined to have this pattern finished by the Stitches and Craft Show... so things might be a bit quieter on the blog front for a while while I burn midnight oil.

Nah, I know you Nikki - you won't be able to stay away from blogging! All in the name of "work", of course. The pocket looks great - I reckon that I might be using that one on LOTS of bags! And the fabrics you've used are super nice.

the pocket that I really want to figure out is the napoleon, it's the only thing stopping me from making myself a tote/messenger/laptop bag myself.

But it's sort of like a buttonhole with a pocket attached and it hurts my brain to think about it!

i think i'd make a whole bag just out of napoleon pockets if I could!
