I've made three of these bags and have been really happy with the end product each time. The pattern is simple to follow and creates a very usable, sturdy bag. Adding a pocket to the inside of the bag made it a bit more organized and added a little flair. This bag was created as a gift for my sister-n-law who will be starting chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer soon. I'm hoping this bag will help her carry necessities back and forth and ensure she looks stylish to boot!
