Excellent Fun project!  July 9, 2013

This pattern is well written and easy to follow. If I had used regular yardage instead of figuring out how to use the jacket for my material, it would have been completed very quickly. I plan to use this again!

Excellent Great Bag & Pattern  February 16, 2013

I love this bag! It is a great size for me. The strap is really comfy, making this a very easy bag to carry/wear. The pattern is very clear and well written & thought out. I had no difficulty at all with this. Thanks for a great pattern.
