We LOVE the Snap, Grab, & Go Tote at JWD Publishing! That’s because we’ve had first-hand experience with it.
We didn’t realize how very useful and clever the Snap, Grab, & Go Tote was until we started using it this summer. Once we actually used it, we realized how fantastic this bag is. In fact, this tote far surpasses the typical quilt bag in usefulness. Besides it’s roominess, it has a wonderful vinyl liner that snaps into the inside of the outer bag. How wonderful is that?……it’s wonderful! Here’s why:
Today I packed my Snap, Grab, & Go Tote full of food from my favorite market, Harbor Greens with meat, vegetables, fruits, and other food items. Then I headed northward for a babysitting gig with two of my grandchildren. I chose to use the Snap, Grab, & Go Tote because it has a vinyl liner—-actually it’s a vinyl-liner inner bag (it’s very clever, indeed). Because of this vinyl liner, I didn’t have to worry about anything leaking out onto the outer bag and leaking onto the seat. Everything was safely contained within the vinyl liner.
You can see this snap-in vinyl liner insert in chartreuse (above). Perhaps you can see how it strategically snaps to the outer bag in the photo image. As you can probably tell, it’s a duplicate of the outer tote, but it’s made of vinyl. All you have to do is purchase the vinyl and a fun fabric and then press the fabric to the vinyl. It’s very easy to do.
Recently I went to our grandchildren’s swimming meet. It was chilly, so I wanted to take both my jacket and sweatshirt, along with my Kindle, purse, and some food—-you know how long swimming meets can be. I piled everything into the bag….but with one big difference: I made a magical change. I unsnapped the inner vinyl-liner, took it out, and repositioned it as the outsider bag. In other words, the vinyl bag became the outer bag and the outer bag became the inner liner.
Having the vinyl lining bag on the outside meant that my bag would not get dirty nor would it get wet at the swimming meet. Everything fit inside and stayed clean and dry. I can do the same thing when I head for the beach. How cool is this…..two bags in one! Who could possibly think up something so clever? Teresa Fields of the Quickie Chicks did. Teresa is always dreaming up something wonderful for us to use.
BTW, did you notice the quilt behind the tote? It comes with the tote pattern….in other words, it’s a tote pattern with a freebie quilt pattern. Teresa is keen on creating quick projects and both of these are no exception. The quilt is deceptively easy. Tote and quilt are great partners for outings.
If you are a quilt shop owner, the Snap, Grab, & Go Tote is a perfect half-day class (or a one-day). Check out the Snap, Grab, & Go Tote page for more details.
If you are a quilter and this tote sounds perfect for you, you can order from your local quilt store. If you do not have a local fabric store near you, you can purchase this pattern online. See the Snap, Grab, & Go Tote page for more details.
I love my tote—either side out…….I know you will too. JWD Publishing is proud to publish the Snap, Grab, & Go tote pattern.
