This bag features lots of useful pockets for organising your things. The word Deskasow is Cornish for “teaching” as I designed this bag to be especially useful for teachers.
- 2 Exterior slip pockets big enough for most mobile phones
- 2 Large interior slip pockets big enough for an iPad or magazines
- 1 Divider zip pocket big enough for a mobile phone or small envelopes
- 2/4 Card slots
- 1 Zip pocket
The bag also has two large compartments between the divider pocket and main panels of the bag
This is an advanced sewing pattern. It’s recommended that you have bag making experience before making this bag. For more in-depth tips, watch the video tutorial linked above. If you’re looking for an intermediate pattern, why not try out our Yasmota handbag pattern here.
Due to the number of pockets, and therefore layers, in this bag, we recommend quilting cotton as an ideal fabric. Canvas is also great and more experienced sewists may want to give vinyl a try. However, the bag is turned multiple times as we construct it so stiff and sturdy fabrics are not recommended. Cork is only suitable if it is high quality, malleable cork that won’t crack when turned multiple times. Thin or flexible vinyl or leather will work but they will make the construction process considerably more difficult so we only recommend these for experienced bag makers.
Whatever fabrics you decide to use, make sure they’re suitable for your sewing machine. For domestic machines, it’s usually best to stick with cotton, especially for your first bag.
