I'm sure it will come to no surprise to you when I say I'm a big fan of Anna's patterns. Her step by step explanations make what might be a nerve-wracking actually completely doable. Things like strap extenders and snaps are actually kind of easy when broken down step by step. Even the inset zipper went in like a breeze!
I used a natural linen for the exterior and some of the sugar resist cotton I dyed last summer for the flap and binding. It's lined with Summersville which always makes me smile when I see it.
I would say I'm looking forward to using this bag but I don't think I'll get to. I used it one day, but lulu saw my things in it and wondered why I was using her bag. She said that was fine for the day, but my time is up and I think it's all hers now. I really can't blame her.
