I made a doll carrier/back pack for my daughter from this pattern about 2 years ago. It was very easy to make, and it turned out great, and I'm happy to report that 2 years on the back pack is still holding up very well. I plan to make a slightly adapted version of it (but with the zipper pouch option instead of the doll carrier option) for myself to use as a casual purse. Highly recommended.
This pattern was great. Very good directions. I have to make 3 for Christmas, two done and working on one. I will send pictures when they are all done.
Got the pattern & got the backpack done in just two days. I was happy with how it went together the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I am an experienced sewer, but often get bogged down with instructions that don't make sense or pieces that don't fit. Even a beginner should have no problems finishing this up.
