Pattern Description: The perfect bag for traveling around the city. This shoulder or cross-body bag has 2 front zipper pockets, 2 front open pockets, top zipper, interior zipper pocket with adjustable strap and top handle. This bag is sure to hold all your essentials!

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. The instructions are really nice and easy to follow. I have always liked SW pattern instructions as they are very nice and thorough

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? A practical bag.

Fabric Used: I got their kitwhich uses a waxed linen
Wow, I just looked at their photo and they had the what I thought was lining only fabric on the outside for some splash and I really like that. Dang, should have looked at the photo or read the pattern (lining vs. outside) details better.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No changes, except mine is more boring now that I see their fabric.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, this is a great bag. It is on the large size though... just an fyi

Conclusion: Fun, easy bag. The fabric in the kit is really nice too.

Cute bag. I bought this pattern to use with some linen canvas I bought in NY, but haven't gotten around to making it. Thanks for the review. I love the color you got.
