The pattern for Evelyn has a full requirements list with suggestions on where to obtain your hardware, 38 pages of comprehensive instructions which include 67 step by step colour photos. There are 6 photos of the finished bag, printing instructions and test squares to print to check your scale. 10 Pattern pieces are included.

The Evelyn is not only practical BUT stylish too! Complete with two zippered pockets (One exterior and one inside) to keep your valuables secure.

Dress it up with some nice shiny rivets & bag feet or keep it simple! The choice is yours!
