It's a good-sized bag - 16" wide x 5½" deep x 13" tall, so it will hold a lot of 'stuff'. It has a zippered pocket on the front...
... and a slip pocket on the back. The slip pocket is actually meant to be left open at the bottom so if you're traveling, it can fit over the handle on your rolling carry-on luggage (thus the name "Takeoff Tote") and ride there, so you don't even have to carry it. I chose to sew mine shut, because I don't have any plans for going on an airplane anytime soon (ever?), and one can never have too many pockets, right?
It's nice and wide at the bottom,
opens wide at the top so it's easy to get at your stuff, and has a couple of slip pockets inside.
I'm very happy with this bag! The pattern was easy to follow, as are all of Erin's patterns. She just has a knack for explaining the how-to's and taking excellent photos that demonstrate them, with meticulous attention to every detail. She works hard to make sure every pattern is 'just right'!
Now I need to fill it up and go somewhere again, since it wasn't ready in time for our Thanksgiving trip to Cincinnati. Maybe somewhere south and warm, since our temp is supposed to get near zero tonight! So much for our lovely "spring" weather.
On a side note, I had no fabrics in my stash that matched the colors in that print, so I ordered some, hoping the colors would go together well. I ordered both the red and wine canvases from Fabric.com. I really hit the jackpot when I ordered the red! Have you ever gotten one of these?
Update: The pattern has now been released! You can find it in Erin's pattern shop here for a discounted price until 12/25/14. Still enough time to make one for a Christmas gift! ;)
