This bag is made with Soft and Stable foam stabilizer, which is great for cushioning the iPad pocket. The Lombard Street bag pattern is ChrisW Design pattern. It's loaded with pockets too!
FYI: This is my 900th posting since I began my blog in 2008!
|The front of the bag has 3 pockets, one is a zippered pocket.|
|3 front pockets.|
|A recessed zippered closure to keep everything secured inside the bag. Can you see the zipper pull on the right for the hidden zippered pocket? One of the pockets has another pocket for your Smart Phone|
|Inside there are slip pockets and I always like to divide the pocket in the center for a pen pocket.|
|This back pocket is for holding your iPad. It's nice and cushioned with the Soft and Stable stabilizer that's used.|
|Zipper pull I made for the iPad pocket.|
|The strap is adjustable to wear across your body. Here is the back iPad pocket in front just to show you the scale of the bag.|
|Here is is worn with the front of the bag showing.|
I also wanted to make a couple of little zipper pouches from the leftover fabrics. A friend of mine gave me this pattern for the Zippety Bags (from Bella Nonna patterns) and I wanted to make some of these, so I made the smallest and the one up from that too. The pattern includes 5 sizes. You can sew them two ways: one with the raw edge of the fabric against the sipper or you can finish the edge so it's not raw. I made one of each. I included these with the Lombard Street Bag. The smallest one is handy for holding coins or earbuds, the larger one could hold cords, batteries and recharging plug-ins or whatever she wants for her trip.
|The smallest bag on the right I made with enclosing the raw edges. The one just a bit larger on the left I sewed with a raw edge, using a fancy zigzag stitch. These were fast to sew, especially the raw edge method.|
|They look like an "S" when unzipped. I did add some zipper pulls after I took these photos.|
