Remember my blog crush on Suzanne? She is one lovely, humorous and talented lady. So, when she agreed to help test my pattern for me, you can guess how excited I was. (hint: very)
The pattern calls for heavier-weight fabrics, but Suzanne fused lighter-weight cottons to use instead. The fabrics are just perfect! Especially the suede detail she added to the back pocket. I’m a sucker for leather.
Suzanne is an experienced garment sewist, but is new to bag making. This is what she had to say about the pattern:
I found your instructions to be incredibly detailed. If I didn’t understand something, I would just go back and read it again…and sure enough, you had already answered whatever question I had. – Suzanne
