Testing, Testing.. Mommy Poppins Bag

Another first for me.. I tested a bag pattern for the lovely and talented Jodi of Sew Fearless

I knew Jodi was working on a new bag pattern as I follow her blog and facebook and she posted some sneak peaks of the bag.  She also made a similiar one before and this pattern was based on it.

I was excited when she posted she was looking for a few pattern testers but alas, they needed to be located in the States as Jodi was suppling and shipping the hardware which includes a frame.  I casually mentioned I had the needed frame but in a smaller size.  Well lucky I did as Jodi got back to me and said her pattern has intructions from customizing with different sized frames and if I wanted to use my frame she'd be happy to have me test.. Of course I wanted to! 

So here's my version of the Sew Fearless Mary Poppins bag... Jodi hasn't released the pattern yet, but was fine with the testers sharing.

I used some fabric I've been hoarding for a while and vinyl for he contrast and handles.

It has a removable crossbody strap

Side view

Front large pocket with flap

Back view with another large pocket

And inside.. I LOVE how the frame holds the opening nice and wide.

I really adore this bag..

Once Jodi releases the pattern I'll be sure to share!


  1. Oh I love that. It's like a doctor's bag. I have internal frame on my list of "gotta do that". Well done!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous. What a lovely design and your fabrics are perfect. Love all the pockets and the size looks perfect too.

  3. Nissa, this bag is beautiful. You did a nice work on it, I love it. I like the colors you've chosen, thanks for allowing me to discover a new blog.
