Pattern Description:
This is a bugout bag for sewing (or other) supplies. I have just been throwing mine in a tote which is annoying so I thought I could use a case to keep them in and this one looked about right for me.

Pattern Sizing:

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Overall, yes. Some steps, such as attaching the final zipper and zipper tabs could have used more photos, but by following the written instructions, it did work just fine.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
stitching the backing fabric to the bottoms of the sides was a BEAST and not for the faint of heart, but the finished product turned out nicely.

Fabric Used:
Downton Abbey quilting fabric

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None that i did this time, but if i had it to do over, i would stay stitch the back curve of the sides and clip the seam allowance

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, if I really needed another one but I would call it an intermediate level of difficulty

Very nice/useful finished product.

Thanks! It is a super useful bag that could be used for a variety of things. My sisters are already wanting and neither of them sew so they have other intentions. Only thing I'll irk about on mine is the 1st internal zipper is a little off center, but not enough to take it apart and redo it :)

That looks nice. I can imagine a lot of uses for this in addition to sewing supplies. Great job.
