"It is so refreshing to find a fun sewing pattern that can be completed from start to finish in a day and still have a beautiful, functional bag(s) that you are proud to show off and carry.

Material used

All exteriors are cotton woven interfaced with SF101. The large and medium have pellon foam and cotton woven lining, also interfaced with SF101. The small is lined with ottertex, no interfacing. I chose the zipper pocket option for the large, slip for the medium and none in the small. I used FOE for binding on all sizes. 

"I had a lot of fun sewing the Trio! It is a quick sew that uses minimal fabric but still looks impressive when complete. The instructions are very easy to read and full of helpful tips. The pattern is very well drafted and I love that an AO size file is provided so that I can sew it with my projector. The only tricky area is the curves, but as long as you baste start 1/8” inch first and go slowly you will be just fine." @Colleen Davis

Cutting all pieces and interfacing about 3 hours for all the pieces I need in the 3 sizes. Sew time it took about 45 min for the small, 1.5 hours for the medium and 2 hours for the large because of the card slots and zipper pocket.

Clear vinyl from bombsheller’s some pink vinyl from my pink brooder on small gusset with silver zipper tape.
