The pattern for Sugar & Spice has a full requirements list with suggestions on where to obtain your hardware, 27 pages of comprehensive instructions which include 51 step by step colour photos. There are 2 photos of the finished bag, printing instructions and test squares to print to check your scale. 8 Pattern pieces are included. PLUS a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions (6 pages) comes bundled with your pattern for printing purposes, should you not need or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

ALL my patterns have measurements for both Metric and Imperial and seam allowances are included too!

The Sugar & Spice Bag is not only roomy and functional but has loads of storage space too! There are 4 exterior slip pockets and a main compartment closing with a recessed zipper which is super easy to make. Two pen pockets and an additional 4 slip pockets inside complete the ensemble. Lots of wonderful piping, metal rings and shiny rivets give your bag that professional look. Your friends won’t believe you made it yourself!
