I have a new sewing pattern for you today! This is a functional tote that I designed to hold all our nature study supplies but you could use it for anything!
I shared in one of the Charlotte Mason groups I’m in and a few asked for a tutorial so I made a second bag to create a pattern with photo directions to take you step by step through construction. I’ll be honest – I don’t usually sew bags!!! LOL! My friend Veronica is amazing at bag construction and my friend Lindsay has written an amazing book about bags (check it out!) but I always feel so daunted when I think about cutting out all the pieces and the stabilizer. And then the hardware, etc! So, this bag is just what I had already on hand but I used a few techniques that you can find in some of the other bag patterns around!
We took it for a spin today and spent a little over an hour at a local walking trail. I find that my kids do better with nature study when there aren’t playground distractions around.
We found insects inside of fallen branches, drew trees with our art supplies, and ran through tall grass today and it was heavenly! I look forward to many more opportunities like this during our homeschool adventure!
If you sew a bag from my pattern I would love to see it! You can download the pattern here or by clicking the image below:
I would love for you to share pictures on my Sewing Mama RaeAnna pattern group page!
And I’ll even include a picture of me taken by Eva Mae! Notice the hunch to help her get the subject in the camera lens! Haha! There are a few with my head chopped off!
