The pattern includes instructions for installing a top zipper closure, exterior zipper pockets, and interior slip pockets.

Nice pattern

I have made 5 of these. First one was a test and then easy peasy. The only comment I have is if you are making this for a person 5'8" or taller I would add a couple of inches to the strap, this is easy to do. I am buying another for my sister in another state. Don't be afraid of this pattern, you will be surprised at the results.

Great Pattern

This pattern is great with very easy to follow instructions. I am really enjoying putting this bag together.

Zippy Bag

The instructions are comprehensive, easy to follow and clearly illustrated.


Gorgeous pattern, exactly what I needed, thank you


I would give it 5 stars but i have one problem with this pattern. There needs to be a test print scale on it. My pattern ended up well over an inch off all around. But other then that love the bag. Easy to make.
