Pattern was super simple. I made 4 book bags in one afternoon and gave them as valentine gifts. The girls loved them and want more.
I made a bag to match an outfit. I found the pattern easy to follow and quick to make.It turned out very well, so I plan to make more! I used fabric rather than mesh for the first try. I tried to get the kind of mesh suggested in the instructions, but couldn't find the exact kind. I found something that may work. Any suggestions about where to find the mesh
This is a great pattern. Good instructions and so many different ways to make it. I especially enjoy making the beach bag to match bathing suits. I will be using this pattern a lot !
I was fortunate to be able to review this pattern and I think it's an amazingly versatile pattern that can be made quickly for a variety of uses! Beach bag, library bag, shopping - your doll will be ready - and because it doesn't use much fabric you can easily make this with scraps!
