Noodlehead Caravan Tote + Pouch Sewing Pattern


Here’s another gorgeous creation from American designer Anna Graham of Noodlehead!  We love her sewing patterns and this Caravan Tote + Pouch offers great value for money with its two patterns … one for the tote and one for the coordinating pouch!  How fab is that?

This sewing pattern is perfect for you advanced beginner and intermediate sewists who love a tailored, yet casual looking bag.  And as you would expect from all of the Noodlehead sewing patterns, they are really appealing to Thread Heads as they offer the chance to delve into your fabric stash for all your fave prints and make a something you truly love.

Zips and snaps keep all your belongings neat and tidy/  Oh, and check out the knitting needle slip pocket and yard guides!  This is definitely *the* bag for you crafty, lovely peeps!

Lovely Anna truly pays it forward by giving permission for you to sell your finished products created from her patterns.  Pretty cool, huh?  Not all pattern designers offer this.  So go ahead!  Get carried away and make several so you can try your hand at selling your creations!

Mind if we gush for a while?  This Caravan Tote + Pouch sewing pattern is a dream come true for those who love to make their own uniquely styled bags.  This pattern offers so much choice to include some stunning fabrics into the project!  We recommend some gorgeous Miller Miller Chrome quilting fabric to create eye catching, oh-so-cool linings!

We love Noodlehead’s sewing patterns and we think you will, too!  They are a huge sensation on Pinterest as fellow Thread Heads like to show off their gorgeous creations for all to see!  Speaking of which, we would love it if you sent along a pic of your completed Noodlehead bags to share on our blog.  It always inspires others when they see what other sewists create.

Noodlehead patterns are the creation of lovely Anna Graham.  Multi-talented Anna is not only a pattern designer.  She is also an author, a shining new star in the fabric design industry and one cool blogger!  Noodlehead gets its name from a nickname for one of Anna’s curly-haired daughters.  How cute is that?  She has created a whole lovely assortment of bags so don’t be surprised if you want to make others once you created one!
