Pattern Rating:Recommend, with Modifications
Fabric:Cotton - Quilting  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: this is a very large messenger type bag that closes with a magnetic clasp. There are no interior or exterior pockets.

Pattern Sizing: pattern is true to it's stated size.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very much so.

Were the instructions easy to follow? No, not really. Some of the instructions were fine, but some sections gave the wrong directions and some of the directions were not at all clear.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? All in all, it wasn't difficult despite the unclear directions. I wish the pattern contained some optional pockets.

Fabric Used: quilting cotton I got on sale this weekend.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added some batting and quilted the exterior and I added one exterior pocket. I changed the handles to webbing instead of handles made from lining material.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? NYSE, I wouldn't mind making another with some additional moderations.

Conclusion: Really nice roomy bag, should hold lots. I could make this into a camera bag or do some other pocket and partition alterations to make it more functional.
