|My new 'Scooters' bag. I love the print|
Just before the fabric arrived I went to the local patchwork shop, (somewhat pessimistically) to look for a bag pattern for me and see if they had a Moon Shine Designs Backpack pattern that my granddaughter wanted me to make for her. I could not believe my eyes when I saw that they had the exact backpack pattern I was after. Then, to complete this serendipitous event, I saw MY bag made up on a shelf. It was the perfect bag pattern for me. It is big, lightweight, has handles as long or short as you wish them to be, is easy open with a spring loaded closure - no zippers or pesky flaps or open top for light fingers to dive into. It's carpet bag shape make it self supporting and it was just so easy to make! That was a real bonus.

Monica Poole is the designer and I can highly recommend her patterns. I'm a bit of a dummy with figuring out written patterns. This one was so easy to follow and execute with lots of diagrams and the finished product looks so professional.
