I love making things that are so cute and so useful! This pattern is that and more. Easy to follow instructions and quick turn-around. The pattern was a download so no waiting for mail to deliver.
This can be made with all kinds of different fabrics and can change the details, too.

This pattern is so easy! I am really happy with the bag and will definitely look at other patterns from this designer. If you have all the required components to hand, you could easily make this in an afternoon.

I have made, probably two dozen of this bag! The detailed instructions are fantastic. I had no problems following, from the very first bag! I love this pattern!

Easy to follow, great instructions. I liked that there were not a lot of pieces to cut out. You could make it as easy or as difficult as you like.

This was my first bag pattern ever and I was thrilled with the result. The bad is quite generous in size without being too big. I used it so much and it now is home to my (unfinished!) crocheting projects.

Very easy and great for a first timer!

This is the 4th pattern I have tried from Sweet Pea Totes. All of the pattern instructions are easy to follow and the techniques will give you the courage to design your own bags or at least make you think you can ;) If you need help or have a question, don't hesitate to contact Mary she is super sweet and helpful. Thank You YCMT and Mary!

This tote is amazingly easy and fun to put together. As others have commented you can change the pattern up a bit by using more than two coordinating fabrics. Now I'm off to purchase another Sweet Pea pattern...................

I bought this pattern along with another. The directions were very simple and it turned out great! Like they said there is a wide range of things you can do with this pattern, i added extra pockets on the inside, and a zipper pocket... you could probably even add ones on the outside if you liked. VERY good pattern! Thank you! :)
