The pattern was super easy to follow and took me a couple hours. The pattern included helpful illustration of the steps. I would recommend this pattern to anyone, would be a good project to a confident beginner sewer.

I got the download pattern. It came right away and I made it the next day. It was very simple to make and instructions were very easy. I was well satisfied with this pattern.

Finally used this pattern for a Christmas gift for my mother. Wonderful pattern with very easy to follow instructions. Love this bag. Will be back for more patterns. I do sell bags on my Etsy site but seldom more than 2-3 of each design. I will honor your rules of use. Thank you!
