|Pattern Description: Cooper gives you three different bags from one basic body: messenger bag, backpack, and satchel. These highly durable bags can be made in a range of sturdy fabrics such as duck canvas, waxed canvas, twill, and heavy ticking.|
All versions are lined and feature eight large pockets, magnetic closures, and hardware details. The messenger bag (version 1) has an adjustable cross-body strap. The backpack (version 2) has two shoulder straps and a hang loop. The two-handled satchel (version 3) does double duty as a bike pannier.
I made the satchel version (3)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes. I again used their kit. Nice kit and hardware. I didn't want to hunt down the parts/notions, so the kit was nice.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. Great instructions every step of the way. Loved the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I think it's a great looking bag/backpack/satchel
Fabric Used: the kit had oil cloth. Ok, so I've never used this type of oil cloth. When I ironed it the oil would "leak", so I had to protect my ironing board with a towel. My concern with this fabric is what will happen to my bag and contents on a hot day in my car. anyone experience this?
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No changes. Made just as instructed.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I do love this bag. My husband does too, so I may make him one. It would be fun using some fun fabric.
Conclusion: Great bag!!
