Cuteness and functionality come together with the Snuggle and Store Tote Bag from Liberty Jane! The doll carrier tote bag features a perfectly size doll bed on the top of the roomy storage bag. Slip your 13" - 18" doll inside and carry her around in style! The fully lined bag includes a large storage compartment to hold all their clothing and accessory items.
The sewing pattern includes full step by step instructions to make the bag using purchased ready-made piping, but you can also make your own to coordinate perfectly. The bag can also be made without the piping if desired. The interior of the bag is lined with a quilted batting layer to give the bag structure and support. This is the least expensive way to make the bag and likely the most convenient in regards to your sewing supplies on hand. Alternately, you can use a stabilizer or interfacing to give it an extra amount of structure.
This pattern is inspired by a bag that Cinnamon (Liberty Jane) had as a child, her favorite treasured "toy" originally made by her mom. This recreation of the item was a team effort and we are super excited to offer this pattern to you! Maybe it will create a cherished memory for someone in your life too!
The bag is offered in two sizes: Small (for 13-15" dolls) and Large (for larger dolls up to 18 inches tall)
The small bag pictured on the cover measures 17 inches long by 10 inches wide, is sized to work with 13-inch to 15-inch dolls such as Les Cheries®, Hearts For Hearts Girls®, Glitter Girls®, Ruby Red Fashion Friends®, Bitty Baby®, Bitty Twin®, Melissa and Doug® Baby Dolls, and more!
The larger bag, shown in purple, is sized a bit larger. The bag measures 20-inches long by 10 inches wide and fits 18" dolls such as American GIrl®, Journey Girls®, My Life As®, Our Generation®, and more.
The PDF pattern document includes both measurement charts and printable pattern pieces that need to be taped together. You can use the charts in place of printing out the pattern pieces if desired.

Found this relatively easy to follow although there was one bit I worked out differently from the pattern. Was very pleased with the result.
It was an easy pattern to follow, although I added some of my own personal touches! I made this for my great-granddaughter and I know that she's going to love it! I used natural duck cloth on the outside and quilted it with foam and pink thread because pink is her favorite color. I made my own piping with pink cotton fabric and quilting the inside using cotton batting. I added divided pockets all the way around inside, using netting for pockets and finished the edges with fold over elastic to store her precious cargo. I cannot wait to see her reaction! Thank you for such a great pattern! I just love it!!!
The instructions were easy to follow. I would have quilted the material first and then cut out the pattern pieces. I did not take into consideration the quilting would cause some shrinkage so the quilted pieces were slightly smaller and I had to do some fudgeing. I would also have used a Bosal type stabilizer to make the bag stiffer. Other than that it turned out well and I am sure my granddaughter will love it.
This was for me the first pattern I made from you. Never used Piping and English is not my native language (I am from Belgium) So i have esitated a while before i dare to start. I loved all the photo's to show how to work and i am very pleased with the result. I hope that my plus granddaughter loves it to, it will be Santaclaus that will bring it to her.
