This is a great pattern, very versatile, and A-B-C clear instructions. I found it challenging to work with canvas and vinyl, but the effort was worth it. If you have never, look at a few tutorials on working with vinyl before you start. I found it very helpful to have the full size pattern pieces rather than measurements alone, as suggested in another review. I truly appreciate and enjoy My Angie Girl patterns.
I never have any difficulty with the PDF files for the patterns, and this pattern is no different, despite its apparent size. I chose the layout I liked, and printed out the only the pattern pieces for that layout. I found the photographic descriptions to be most helpful. I didn't change anything but I did use a few shortcuts.
Made two of these for granddaughters (actually for daughter-in-law’s sanity!) large collection of American Girl accessories. Loved the photos, descriptions and tips. They went together quickly and turned out beautifully.
I have always been happy with the patterns from Pixie Faire, however I must comment on this one. For the rectangular pieces measurements to cut the fabric would have saved a lot of time and paper, a small template to place the pleats on the shoe compartments and the doll holders would have been sufficient for the people that don't need a mile long piece of paper to cut from, it took a lot of time to trim the paper to match up the silly bird and numbers just so I could get the measurement. The idea of this organizer is very good and I appreciate the variety of ways this can be made.
The pattern looks complicated, but really is quite simple. Like how you can customize the various features. Directions are well written and verbal clear. The pictures are a huge help. I used 5/8" grosgrain ribbon instead of the bias tape for the binding and trim. Will definitely make another.
