On the Move Day Bag - pdf pattern

About the Pattern:

This bag was designed for parents like me, who don’t need a large bag but still carry a load of children’s bits and bobs about with them as well as their own essentials. Think drinks bottles, snacks, mobile phone (cellphone), lip balm, plasters (band-aids), cards, keys, sunglasses and so on.

I had ripstop (nylon) in mind because it is durable, lightweight and wipe clean, however variations can be made with any fabric. (see blog posts)

The bottle pockets can be made from the exterior fabric, or alternatively, stretchy mesh for a different look.
