Your choice of two sizes, reversible or zippered style, both with 7 pockets, AND 1,2,or3 straps (!) makes this a very versatile pattern. I designed this with 2 short straps and one optional long strap (to help the back-challenged!). Outside are 2 pockets that are perfect for a water bottle and a book, or whatever else you'd like to have handy. Inside, there are 5 pockets of various sizes. And there is a stiff bottom insert to help keep the bottom from sagging. Go to the beach, go to an art class, go to the park, go with your baby! You can pack it all up in this great bag. Sizes are: Large - approx 11" high by 17" wide, or Small - approx 9" high by 15" wide. Both are 4" deep. I am modeling the large size in the photo (and I'm 5'2" to give you an idea of scale).

** This is a sewing tutorial! Included are 6 pages of instructions (with dimensions for cutting fabric pieces - all rectangular) and 5 photos.

Cute, easy pattern. I had a question about one of the supplies that I needed and the seller responded quickly and was very helpful. There weren't as many pictures as I am used to in most patterns, but honestly it was so easy that I really didn't need any more pictures than there already were.

The pattern is well written with clear, easy to follow directions. It would have been useful to have more photographs as a reference.
