Noodlehead created the pattern for this lovely bag especially for the beginner sewist!  With soft pleat detailing, a flat bottom, a single strap, optional zippered interior pockets and optional magnetic closure, even intermediate sewists will fall in love with this design!  Lots of options to make a Runaround Tote that suits your tastes to a ‘T.’

Noodlehead’s designer, American Anna Graham takes you through every step so you can create a gorgeous Runaround Tote bag of your own …. or two, or three, or ten!!  Be warned, you can become addicted to making these beauties!  You’ll want to make enough to go with your favourite outfits and several for each season!

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 designers offer this!

Noodlehead recommends using heavy linen, denim, canvas, twill, or home decor weight fabrics for the bag exterior and medium weight quilting cotton for the interior.

The finished bag is 15.5 inches (39.4 cm) wide x 5.5 inches (14 cm) deep and 13 inches (33 cm) handle drop.  It is 25.5 inches (65 cm) tall including the strap.

Roomie, functional and gorgeous, the Runaround Tote will become your go-to bag – particularly when you create it with your favourite fabrics!  We love the option to add in the magnetic snap and zippered interior pocket to keep your belongings safe and sound.  We’re picturing winter Runaround Totes in gorgeously textured corduroy or velvet with deep, rich toned interior fabric.  Or how about a summer tote in pastel linen and a floral interior?  How about a Christmas-themed one?  Tempting, isn’t it?  Make several to give as gifts, sell on, or keep for yourself!

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!
