Suzi is ideal for keeping things together in a busy purse, or easily moving your things from purse to purse. Suzi also makes a great organizer or caddy and is wonderful to use for sewing or desk supplies. Two sizes.
Medium: 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 3"
Large: 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 3"
I made the large one, but struggled with the american measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy, though all measurements are only in yards and inches. As there are no pattern pieces, converting all measurements and keeping myself from getting mixed up wtih original vs my measurements was hard.
The instructions have a lot of pictures and detailed text and even the finishing touches have pictures to clarify.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the idea of having a movable bag organizer and the possibility to use fabric remnants from other projects though it turnes out that Suzi uses quite a bit of fabric.
The construction is clever and easy to make and the outcome is very cute and highly practical.
Note: A rotary cutter is needed as there is only 6mm (1/4") seam allowance.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did use a directional print, so made the main pieces in two parts reversing them so that pictures are right side up when finished. There would have been a seam anyway, so it did not make a constructional difference. Directional print in inside
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes (I only need one for bags, but will make one for desk use and as gifts) and yes.
Highly recommended, but be prepared to use inches and not metric measurements without paper pattern pieces.
