Thank you! Nice pattern with lots of pictures, It's the first detailed purse/bag I've made so there were a few parts that were tricky and were a bit confusing for me but this probably had more to do with being a beginner at bag sewing. Overall it came out really great and I appreciated the details in the design of this bag. Great for traveling!

I made the Franny pack and It was easy. The only problem I have with it was that I would have liked it a little deeper. I have made one since then, based on the pattern but deeper and I changed the front a little but I had no problems with the pattern and instructions.

This pattern turned out great! It took me a little time & a message to the seller to figure out one of the steps but all in all it was pretty easy to assemble. I will make more for myself and for gifts. :)
