Finished my first bag from this pattern yesterday. Really easy-to-follow instructions and am delighted with the end product! Will definitely be making it again.

Love this pattern! This was the first time I tackled a project without a paper pattern was worried I would not be able to follow . But this was super easy to follow turned out a great tote that I use to carry to work. I enjoyed the no pattern pieces process. I improvised and added a stable bottom. Will be trying the smaller version next. Look forward to buying another project from here.

Another great pattern from Svetlana, easy simple to understand instructions. Made this bag with fabric from my stash, similar bag for sale was £48.50 and I had the pleasure of making to my exact requirements. Highly recommended.
