"Great pattern, super easy and big impact. I really like this one and will be making many more to come! I really love the mesh zip compartment in the lid - such an amazing feature! The way the entire thing is constructed with the handle in mind is very chic and functional. I also love the consideration for the fussy cut construction - so nice to be able to have all of the panels going the correct direction with ease! The medium is my absolute favorite size. Thank you!" @Nikki Schmidt

Material used - 

Cotton woven and cotton canvas from Kammie Lou Lou’s Fabric shop. I used SF101 on the cotton woven, nothing on the canvas, and attached pellon foam to the exterior with some quilting designs and the lace trim.

This is a really easy to follow pattern with clear photos and detailed instructions that are broken up into short steps, so nothing seems overwhelming.  This is a very well drafted pattern. The pieces fit precisely. @Colleen Davis

Material used -

  • Small - cotton spandex exterior and handle with SF101 & fusible fleece. WPC interior. Clear vinyl pocket with double folded bias tape.
  • Large - cotton woven with SF101 and foam. Peltex bottom. WPC handle and interior. Mesh pockets with double fold bias tape.

As always I love all of the options given in the pattern. Your patterns always make it so easy to customize the item to what you need or want. I love that you provided the fussy cut pattern pieces. Nobody wants to be limited in their fabric selection or have upside down characters on half the item. @Rebecca Hill





Machine used - Industrial Juki DDL 8700-7

Material used - 

  • Large - Faux leather/vinyl from Sew Girlie Fun Fabrics and Woven fuse along with sew in foam.
  • Medium - Cotton woven from Zor-Elle and water proof canvas interior. Sew in foam and some ribbon lace for binding.
  • Small - Invader Zim fabric is from retro stitch custom fabrics, I got the lining from a destash so not sure who printed it. Sew in foam from Joann's.

The pattern pieces were the best takeaway for me. I really like the ease of the pattern pieces lining up so nicely. There's so many ways to make these lunch boxes/storages. It's great!  I love seeing the pictures. So thank you for the visual instructions @Linda Kolb

 It’s yet another addictive and easy sew! Works with various types of Fabric. My personal preference is using Glossy Vinyl. Final output is functional with the 3 different sizes to be used as a make up bag/lunch box bag / snack bag / first aid kit and many many more!!! 👍👍 @Karen Tay

Material used -

  • Medium - Fabric exterior Joann fabrics, Interoir JJ’s custom fabrics with Hello kitty Killers. Interfacing I used Therxfuse and non woven Pellon 931TD. For quilting I used Pellon Thermolam.
  • Small - Custom Cotton woven I believe from Spencer’s custom fabrics, interfacing was Therxfuse from fabric therapy RX, and thermolam.

Such a cute design and so versatile! This is the second pattern I have worked with you that has one zipper and little by little I am improving with installing them. This style always intrigued me but it was daunting because every pattern I found used binding which terrifies me. I love that this is a birthing pattern, something that I am very comfortable with. And I always love your well written patterns which is extremely easy to follow. @Thien Ai Hartop



Machine used - Industrial- Juki DU1181N

Material used -

  • Large - Exterior: Backstitch Fabric Goonies in Lycra Interfacing: SF101 Interior: Water-resistant canvas, Oxford Canvas from A&A Textiles Thermal Insulation: Home Depot Rainbow Thread: Sunny Sewing Machines
  • Medium - Vinyl: A&A Textiles, Water-Resistant Canvas: A&A Textiles. No Interfacing
  • Small - Thermal Insulation: Home Depot, Vinyl: A&A Textiles, Water-resistant Canvas: A&A Textiles

The size options were my favorite feature. I was able to use this with so many options because of it. What I love is that you listen to us. We said that more pockets would be wonderful, and you immediately went to work at making the changes needed. This pattern allowed me to learn how to use thermal insulation for my projects. This is a technique that I will be taking into other project in the future. ie: Grocery bags. @Sew HoneyBea 





Machine used - Juki TL-18 Haruka

Material used - 

  • Exterior vinyl (Hapa Fabrics - Park Hoppers) , interior WPC, stabilizer - fusible fleece
  • Cotton Woven (Sew Girlie Fun), interior WPC, fusible fleece quilted
  • Exterior vinyl (Sew Girlie Fun), interior WPC, stabilizer fusible fleece quilted to WPC

This is a versatile bag that can carry lunch, sewing supplies, children’s toys. It’s a quick sew and the pockets inside make it perfect to separate those little items and keep them from falling into the bottom of the bag. The large size On The Go Pouch is the perfect size to carry sewing projects to my overnights as my mom’s caregiver to keep me busy. The pockets for the scissors, thread and small rulers are perfect to keep those separated and very handy. @Gloria Haney

Really enjoyed this experience! It’s the first pattern I was able to follow that didn’t have an instruction video to follow. Also the first time using net/mesh.  Hiding the zipper inside the bag is brilliant! @Mary Wiess

"Lovely pattern with lots of options for mesh pockets. Multiple uses for this pouch. Great pattern with 3 different sizes to choose from." @Geraldine Tan



Machine used - Domestic Brother VX880 and Toyota SuperJeans 34C

Material used -

  • All of my fabrics and interfacings were purchased at local shop.

  • Large one: exterior- lightweight waterproof canvas fused with fleece; interior- waterproof canvas with no interfacing.
  • I didn't get mesh, so I used tulle (double folded) for pockets.

What I like best about this pattern is that the main body is only one piece but there is also an opportunity for fussy cut, it's fast and easy to sew project, with many options.:) @MayDee

I love the mesh pockets. They are a simple to add feature that really will help with organization of smaller items. I also love the versatility of this pattern. It can be used for so many things.
