Introducing the Nest Egg–my newest pattern and
contribution to the Road Trip Pattern Club. (UPDATE: Pattern now available here.)
I had a lot of fun putting this project together! It all started with a desire for a cross-body-style bag that could be used not only for a purse, but also for carrying some sewing necessities. (I’m planning to make at least one for each purpose!)
I liked the idea of a super round shape that could open up flat, so there’s a zipper that runs around the entire side and then a hinge at the bottom to hold it all together.
Inside, I played around with a couple different ways to hold some things. On one side are some elastic bands, and then on the other are two big pockets.
It’s very canteen-esque, which I like, but I couldn’t seem to work that aspect into the name. So I went with calling it the Nest Egg, the name of a local road and a name that I just kind of liked for this project.
Other fabric variations are definitely planned and in the works.
It’s been a lot of fun being a part of this pattern club!
