Bionic Gear Bag

I’ve made several Bionic Gear Bags for myself and for friends, and while I dearly love them, this was probably the last one I will make. I fell in love with this fabric! It’s “Handmaids” by J. Wecker Frisch. I have more of and plan to make another sewing bag of some sort with it.
I love all the pockets in these bags! After making so many of them, one would think I would have figured out a little earlier on, that rather than use the zipper size the pattern calls for, it’s much easier to use a long one and cut it to fit.
The bags are wonderful for holding sewing supplies. I have several tote bags dedicated as “grab and go” quilt bags, and I usually keep a project bag in each of them, loaded with the things I typically need for a project. Scissors, spare needles and pins, pencils, wonder clips, thread, tweezers, etc. It all fits!
I originally purchased this pattern on Craftsy, which is now Bluprint* but the pattern is no longer available on that platform. You can purchase the class for it on SewLikeARockStar, but it’s unclear to me if you can buy the pattern or not. There is also a new and improved version of the bag, called the Bonza Bag.
I used Soft and Stable by Annie for all the bags. I like the added structure it gives to the bags, and it really makes the quilting pop.
Have you made a Bionic Gear Bag? Did you find it challenging? Some people struggle with the pattern (myself included) and others had no problems following it.
