This bag is a nod to our camping trip in Cornwall a few months ago, and specifically the Mighty Fine Day we spent at Tintagel with our closest friends and their boys. The colours are also reminiscent of my daily commute during Covid.

Marrying these everyday moments with the ones that make my heart sing will hopefully serve as a reminder that the best days are not the only mighty fine days there are. Sometimes the regular days are mighty fine too!

The Mighty Fine Day Bag is full of texture and mindful stitches. It has a strap closure and a cute little Floral Pouch (for stitch markers or treasures).

The pattern is presented as a step-by-step photo tutorial, written in US terminology.
