    Fons & Porter Magazine Issue

    Does anyone know what issue of Fons & Porters has the "Calypso Tote Bag"? I've been unsuccessful with their web site.

    Thank You in advance.

    I made this bag. If I were to do it again I would make 2 handles somehow instead of 1. Its a nuisance carrying with 1. Binding was not a piece of cake using their directions. Dont bother with the fusible thread. Not a well written pattern but doable. I used Soft and Stable. That was the best part. The pocket placement directions weren't good either which caused a not so good bottom inside. I probably will make another one sometime but do it a little differently. Works good for my laptop which I take to my embroidery group. The pattern is not on F&P website, only the supply list and the link to buy the pattern. I downloaded it.

    It is on the DVD of their 2100 series. Here is the link to the DVD. Cheaper to buy the pattern.

    That is not the one that Fons and Porter showed on TV.
