Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Can someone post the cut chart/measurements of each piece? They aren't listed on the 3 pages of the pattern.

OK, now that I've Googled Vera Bradley (she's not in South Africa) I can turn my attention to the bag, haha! Love it! It looks so sturdy and practical as a travel bag. We do lots of road trips and this bag is going to be great for all my 'stuff' that I like to be handy while actually on the road, instead of having to stop and scratch through cases to find it.

I can't understand the pocket pattern pieces. I think I will use a different pattern.

Thank you for the great gift, I am looking forward to finding the time to make this beautiful bag. Many thanks, Jess

This is beautiful. I would strongly suggest that these instructions be rewritten. I have been sewing for over 40 yrs and cannot follow them. I can make this without reading the instructions since they make no sense.

LOVE! I never would've guessed this bag was handmade. And the pattern is SO Vera.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment.
