Welcome to my first post under my new blog name 'Crafternoon Teas', I wanted to re-name my blog with what I love and crafting and tea sounds the best way forward. More on my new blog soon...
This post, after my blogging break is a look back a my gorgeous holiday bag I made in April. I was over the moon with this bag as it ticked all the boxes of being contemporary, unisex and very practical for family trips. Here's how I got on with it three month later...

In the last three months we have taken the bag on long weekends, it's been thrown in the back of the car for days out and Mr. Crafternoon has taken it on a cycling trip away. It now lives at the bottom of his wardrobe (his choice).

I love the fabric as it's so easy to wash and the large handles are perfect so you can pop it on your shoulder.  The deep side pockets made without the zip are great for maps and tablets. Being able to make something that works like this is what I love about being able to sew.
If I was to make it again I would make it with a heavy duty zip. The pattern didn't specify a heavy duty version but the amount of use it's been getting I would sew one in when I made this again.
I want to thank Minerva Crafts for supplying the materials and publishing the review on their site. Have you made a bag or want to for you holiday?
Happy Sewing,
