A lovely bag!

Lauren is most inspiring with her video tutorial on how to make this cute bag, it's like having a friend with you as you make it. The darts at the front and pocket allow ample storage for the necessities. I have been wanting to make a bag like this for a long time and glad I finally chose this one. Great pattern and instructions, thank-you!


As a beginner at sewing, this is the second bag pattern that I have attempted. The final product is beautiful! I didn't really use the written pattern but the video was an amazing tool that I could follow along from start to finish! I am extremely satisfied!

Hip bag mania!

The pattern is well written and fun to make. I have made three of these so far. Started off with some fun Halloween fabric and made two and the third Was made with some bright floral fabric. These were so easy to make. Again, thank you for making these patterns.

Marsupial Hip Bag

I honestly love this pattern, I love the construction of the front pocket. I love how quickly it came together.
Very well written, love that there is a video to follow too!
Thanks, Lauren!

Great pattern! Easy to adjust for bigger waist!

Great pattern that is easy to follow. I cut my strap at 48 instead of 36 to give me extra room (I wear a 28 pant size). Can’t wait to make more!
