The pattern for Evelyn has a full requirements list with suggestions on where to obtain your hardware, 38 pages of comprehensive instructions which include 67 step by step colour photos. There are 6 photos of the finished bag, printing instructions and test squares to print to check your scale. 10 Pattern pieces are included. PLUS a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions (8 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 Evelyn is not only practical BUT stylish too! Complete with two zippered pockets (One exterior and one inside) to keep your valuables secure. Two elasticized exterior pockets for your phone or keys, 3 additional inside pockets as well as a pen pocket. With a little patience it is easy to make! Dress it up with some nice shiny rivets & bag feet or keep it simple! The choice is yours!
