    I really loved making the Roll with it Tote, I used faux leather and metallic Essex linen and it turned out a treat, so much so, my Mother grabbed it immediately. There is quite a bit of piping but don’t be nervous about that, Lisa has done a great tutorial on how to sew in piping which makes it easy peasy

    Worked up nicely. The patterns is well written, easy to follow and drafted beautifully. I used a canvas and corduroy, which meant I needed to modify the strap placement. I’m happy with how the bag looks- it’s a beaut! I do wonder if I need to alter the zipper a titch- eliminating the gap between the bag edge and zipper start. It’ll need to be carried around a while to see if things really fall out. I’ve already cut out two more to sew!

    I had trouble with viewing thru adobe reader, they responded very quickly with a link for foxit reader, then I had no problem reading the pattern. Thanks for getting back with me so quickly.

    Easy to follow directions. I love this tote! I had been searching for a good purse pattern and I’m glad I found this!

    Great directions and easy to follow. Interesting shape and I liked the fact the lining was well thought out and uses separate pattern pieces; this means the lining is a better fit than most patterns. Only reason I have given it 4 stars is the size. It is hard to judge from pattern measurements and photos. I was expecting a tote but even the large one is quite small and only handbag sized. Probably should not be described as a tote.

    As with all Lisa’s patterns I have purchased so far they are so beautifully designed and easy to follow.
    I will have an amazing collection in the coming weeks and have quite a few orders for future months.

    I loved the pattern. I had a bit of a problem with the recessed zipper but i feel confident the next will be easier. I find that the Andrie Designs are easy to follow and complete.
