Sallie Tomato is Relaunching Molly!
Molly is a great bag by Sallie Tomato that I recently tested for her relaunch and she is a beauty!! I never made the original bag under its original name Union St. Satchel so I can’t compare but I can say this bag is a pretty easy make with big style!!
Molly is a great tote bag that has a really cute feature that allows you to clip the sides in to make a fun new shape. Coupled with the snap closer I feel this also helps with the safety of this bag that does not have a zipper closer. I like the extra security. The bag is 19 inches wide, 12 inches high, and 7.5 inches deep.
My Make, I must admit I was a little worried this bag was not quite my normal style but I truly love it now that is made. I made it with Terrarium by Jason Yenter purchased at The Fabric Candy Shoppe.
I used a shiny black croc embossed vinyl for the handles. It took me forever to figure out my fabric choices and was a bit nervous if this would work but now I love it!! Even my husband commented on much he likes the look!! “It’s very Springy!” was his exact comment.
Now that I have carried the bag for couple weeks I can say it is such a fun bag to carry! It is perfect for the summer and to wear with fun solid summer dresses. It also pairs well with jean shorts and a tank top I am living in to survive the Texas summer heat. Overall this pattern is a real winner in my book. A pretty quick make and I would say good for even a confident beginner. The only thing I would change for my next one would be to not put on the side strap D ring and clip and just attach it all the way up. Definitely not a flaw just a choice.
What do you think of this bag! It you would like to try it head over the Sallie Tomato and grab a copy!
