    Pattern was very easy to understand, I made the biggest one and its huge! I will probably make the next two sizes as well. Love this site and have now bought two other patterns to have a go at.

    This is a great pattern, good instructions, and nothing hard about the construction techniques. I’ve made it in two sizes and been pleased with both bags.
