I downloaded this free bag pattern from very purple person a while ago, so I’m glad that I’ve finally managed to make it.
I made a lined patch pocket using the embroidery test piece I made. It isn’t a perfect finish - it’s a bit wobbly on one side, but I still like how it looks.
I used a 1/4 ins seam allowance instead of the recommended 5/8 ins, so there would be less trimming needed. It means my bag is a little bit bigger too.
I wasn’t sure if I was doing the right thing when it came to turning the bag out through the handles, but the instructions reassures you.
I like that it’s reversible - it makes it more versatile.
The instructions are really clear and easy to follow. I really recommend this pattern. It’s an enjoyable make.
