I wrote/drew up my first bag pattern. I can't tell how clear my instructions are since I've made the bag numerous times now. I know I understand what I'm trying to say haha. Does anyone feel like actually sewing it? Or at least want to view the pattern instructions for me? If anyone would like to, please email me: aliciavr6 at gmail.com (edit: can download PDF pattern here: http://www.aliciavr6.com/sewing/patterns/bag1_pattern_pacobean.pdf). It has a recessed zipper and basic pockets inside, stabilizer, fleece, etc.

Also I'm not sure what skill level to recommend.

The bag:

It looks really cute. I'll download the pattern and take a look. I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination but I like making totes and purses, so I'll enjoy trying it out. Thanks!

YAY!!! I'm super excited I drafted my very own pattern, I'm glad it's easy to follow! I first learned how to sew with Amy Butler patterns - she's very good at explaining. Once I started using other patterns, like BurdaStyle, there was a huge learning curve! ha

Thank you for taking a look!

I read the instructions and sent you an email with my comments, you did a great job. I think you can make this a beginner pattern - the instructions are very clear.

Good luck with your sales on Etsy.

I was able to open the Etsy link, but got the 404 error when trying to open up the bag pattern pdf link. :0(
