Fun and easy to follow along :-)
I needed a small cross body bag and this seemed ideal. The instructions were easy to follow, words and pictures and I have a great little bag that holds more than you'd think with zip pockets front and back outside, zip pocket and slip pocket inside.
Wonderful pattern. I made the cross body bag. The video instructions were very helpful. Made a great birthday present for my daughter. I made mine out upholstery fabric and I lined it with a Scoobie Doo printed cotton to make her smile every time she opens it. I made bias tape out of a contrasting cotton. Very happy with the result. I didn’t like the look of the suggested strap material on my bag so I made my own. It was my first attempt at this type of bag but it won’t be my last.
It's functional, practical and fun! The perfect bag :)
I made the smaller size and added 2" to the gusset width. It's perfect for the Disney and Universal parks. As a travel agent, I have to carry a few extra pieces of equipment, and this bag is just perfect. I love that I can carry it backpack or sling style to change things up if I get too hot. Thanks!
I made up the pattern from Harry Potter fabric for my daughter's school trip to London and Harry Potter studios. I enjoyed making if as I learned new skills even as an experienced sewer. I have many more planned ☺️ The sew along on YouTube was fun to follow and very informative - I highly recommend it!
This took me a long time to make - cutting the fabric took the most time- but it was well worth it. I used both the video and written instructions, and it turned out the way it was supposed to. On the next ones, I will eliminate the connector for use as a backpack, as I expect I will use only as a crossbody / sling. I made the small and am able to fit my water bottle, phone, hand sanitizer and more in it.
This pattern is so versatile and the options make it so customizable. The online tutorial makes putting it together easy to understand.
Very happy with this purchase. So many different options. I have made 2 & will make more for sure. E&M patterns are so easy to follow with instructions & especially with the video. Highly recommend their patterns.
I've made a bag with this pattern and it turned out so lovely. The pattern is loaded with different size options and options for pockets, zipped pockets and bag styles. I've made the large and I really like the size. It can hold A4 size or a small laptop/tablet/iPad and all the other stuff we women take with us. With the help of all the different pockets it even stays somewhat organised. I love how well the instructions are written. Definitely recommend!
