    What a gorgeous bag. My daughter would love it.

  2. Katrin says:

    This looks like a great pattern. Thanks!

  3. Joy says:

    I’m always looking for the perfect bag.

  4. charmaine west says:

    Great retro pattern.xx

  5. Cindy says:

    I am always on the lookout for a great overnight type bag that is lined, zips up, and can be worn over the shoulder or with short handles both!). It has to open wide though, so having a zipper that only spans across the top isn’t acceptable, it has to zip part way down the sides as well.

    Love the pattern!

  6. Kelley says:

    I have been looking at this pattern for a while now! thanks for the chance to win! kelleyetg (at) gmail (dot) com

  7. I’m not a very purse-y kind of girl – I’d rather use my pockets. But, especially in summer (love winter coats for the extra pockets!) I just can’t fit it all in my pockets. So I’m constantly on the lookout for a pattern that can hold a paperback book (to read while waiting anywhere really), my phone, keys, and can double as a wallet, or hold a wallet. But not something so over the top that I can fit a beach ball and umbrella stand. Something with the ability to showcase a few favorite fabrics, but is durable (especially on the bottom). And honestly, it looks like the rucksack might fit all that. 😀 So I really hope I win, but if not, it’s going on my “to buy” list.

    I’m constantly looking for the perfect bag. Just started making my own. This bag give-away looks great.

  10. Hannah says:

    I would love to buy a pattern for a classy but functional diaper bag. Something with a bunch of pockets (inside and out), maybe an interior divider, but that doesn’t look super handmade (I’m thinking cool hardware, leather accents maybe).

  11. Audrey says:

    Actually, this could be the pattern I’m looking for…I have a bag that I use right now that’s falling apart, and I’d like to replace it. It converts between a bag and backpack and has about a kajillion pockets so I can attempt to keep my mommy life organized. This is super cute! Thanks!

  12. Kara says:

    This pattern looks adorable – nice work!

    This would be a great bag for me as I am chasing my toddler around in the park! I love the chic design and I would use a mix of denim and canvas to make the bag!

  33. It looks like a great bag. Right now I’m in pursuit of the perfect purse (not too big or small, nice lines).

  40. SonJa says:

    I’ve been hunting a pattern for a Kokka purse I saw a snapshot of on Noodleheads blog…it’s a short tote with funky slip handles and end pockets plus side pockets..I’m totally in love with it….I can’t seem to figure out how to design it, though I’m usually pretty good with figuring out purse patterns…but this one has me miffed completely! Sooooooo many layers, there must be an easier way?
    I love the rucksack pattern too! Your bags are very professional looking.

  41. Stephanie says:

    This looks like a great bag! I’ve been wanting to make a satchel, but part of what my issue may be is finding the hardware. Thanks!

  42. Tasha says:

  46. Leo says:

    patterns that I’m looking for … ehh a dress pattern that actually fits … running shorts … those round bags – a circle left and right the look a bit liek a roll, but are large for travelling ..

  47. Victoria M says:

    I love this pattern. Will it fit a MacBook Pro?
    The pattern I can never find is a stylish tunic sort of garment that can be made of thin wool knit and used over a shirt and skinny jeans. It could be belted and should not be bulky of loo homemade.

    I need to find good bag patterns – not tote bags, but more like this and / or like a messenger bag or and / or an overnight bag like someone already mentioned. I have a nice messenger bag, but it has suede and I live in Seattle. I have a cute fabric purse but it’s not a design that works for me.

  55. Tawny says:

    This bag reminds me of the bag that my husband had and sorely misses. I bet if I made it in masculine colours, it would make a good replacement. Thanks for the chance.

    What a cute bag! I’d love to make one for myself now that we’ve grown out of the diaper bag phase!

  102. Jody Herbert says:

    Love the rucksack! A great design. I have been on the lookout for a great swimming bag pattern – something that primary school age kids can easily carry and open themselves. The drawstring bags just don’t work (the kids get tangled up in the drawstrings or I end up carrying their bags!)

  103. WendyMD says:

    I don’t know how to describe the pattern I’m looking for. It’s cross body, and the back part with the flap that folds over the front is actually a long pocket with a zipper. I’ve seen some big brand names/mall stores that have them, I just haven’t been able to wrap my head around how to DIY 🙂

  104. Linda Webster says:

    I love making bags and totes. Thanks for the chance to win.

  105. Susan says:

    I am always looking for a great travel bag. I want my phone,camera, wallet, sunglasses and keys. I have a two zip bag with a pocket, a small cross body with adjustable strap but it doesn’t open wide enough. Just a tiny bit too small.

  111. Susi says:

    What a wonderful pattern!!!
    I would love a bag that can be big if it needs to be, but small when you just have to carry some little bits around. And it should look great of course and it should allow me to have my hands free, so kind of a cross body bag 🙂 xo

    I’m always on the lookout for bags that are functional for cycling and that also look nice. It’s difficult to find both qualities in the same bag. Your lovely bag looks as if it would fit that description. I really hope that I win a copy of your pattern. Thanks for the chance.

  116. Ahh, my children would love ruckasacks from your pattern. 🙂

  117. Anita says:

  133. --anu says:

    I would love a pattern for storing knitting stuff: I have maybe around a dozen douple pointed needle sets and around 15 or so circular needles. I want to store them all in one vessel but separated by sizes and pockets marked for sizes. I have yet to see anythign even remotely suitable and I have been on this quest for oh, around 6-7 years.

    Trying to find some loose tunic dresses!

  135. Colleen says:

    I constantly look for a pattern for a toiletries bag that really works for me. Every one I try either doesn’t hold enough or is so deep little things get lost and bottles fall over. Can’t even buy one that seems to work.

    I would love to see a pattern for a backpack with lots of pockets & a few different interior sections.

  147. Morgan says:

    I like this bag very much, especially in that pretty tealy colour!
    A pattern that I’d love to buy but can’t find… The pattern for a particular bag that I’ve fallen in love with in real life, I suppose! Or just a really comprehensively written one with proper finishing instructions for a Jansport bag (or something very similar). I took apart a Jansport bag so I could make one, but I’ve gotten better at sewing since then and now can’t find the pattern pieces I drew up :/

  148. Hazel Pepper says:

    Love this bag, and would love to win to get the pattern. I’m still fairly new at this sewing stuff, but I am addicted!

  149. marjolein says:

    what pattern do i look for? the perfect bag, or a perfect shirt (although it must match my less-then-perfect skills).

  150. Sue says:

    Love this bag. I love bags anyways…….and always on the lookout for that perfect bag! Great design !

  151. Audrey says:

    Love this pattern! I’m obsessed with making bags right now, would love to give this one a try!

  152. Karen says:

    Always looking for a good bag pattern and this looks great! I always think tote bags are the way to go but they don’t seem very stylish unless they have pockets and zippers. I tend to make them then after shortly using them, they get donated :). This bag could fit so much and be stylish. Thanks for the chance!

  153. jeifner says:

    I’d like a large bag that is wider than it is tall, with perhaps a divider and many pockets with handles large enough to sling over the shoulder

  154. Patty Howe says:

    I would love to find a “Mary Poppins” type bag. I have been looking everywhere for one.

  156. Kel Price says:

    I love this bag! And I appreciate you using subtle fabric to really let the bag’s design shine. I love bags in general and am always looking for fun new patterns…but sometimes the fabric used in tutorials/pattern pictures can be so busy/loud that it’s hard to really see the actual shape/design.

    But I digress, I would love to see some bag patterns for sturdy medium sized totes that have multiple compartments.

    Thank you!

  157. Jodi R says:

    I have to admit I am yet to think of something I want to make that I haven’t been able to find a pattern/tutorial for or near enough that I could modify it to suit my need.

  158. Amber Hunter says:

    I just started following you on Bloglovin’! Thanks for the giveaway! I love this bag!

    Most bag patterns I find are rather large. I would just like something that’s smaller but with pockets.

    I still haven’t forgot about this bag. I know I was probably one of the first to comment when you first released it. It has been booked marked on my computer. As soon as I finish with one project and things slow down with my work and kids sports…. I am DIVING into this bag!!

    This is a pattern like no other!!


  178. Erin says:

    I’d love to find a pattern for well fitting underwear and possibly other lingerie if I can find the materials. 🙂

  179. Kathryn says:

    I’m looking for a bag that will hold my Macbook air in a safe way with room for my tablets and my phone and a gadget bag of cables and some crochet work and maybe a spare pair of socks and a lipstick. That isn’t a geeky backpack. I keep dreaming of making websites during the day and bags at night (or vice-versa).

  191. Audrey says:

    I’m a bag lover, this pattern looks great!

  192. I love bags with pockets, lining in a contrasting fabric…. maybe with sparkles so its a happy surprise every time, something durable… and I need the top to zipper. I imagine it as a diaper bag– I need one for two kids and its hard finding what is exactly right.

  193. DebbieK says:

  196. auschick says:

    I am trying to find the perfect diaper bag pattern. I want something big since I carry a ton of crap, ahem, necessities, around with me, but i also don’t want it to be super heavy. I want a shoulder strap that is strong and doesn’t get all shredded up with use over time, and I want the strap connectors to be metal. It needs lots of pockets and probably laminated fabric on the inside.

    I am always looking for a messenger type bag with a zipper closure, but I don´t like those zippers with a tab sticking out, I wanted a zipper fully enclosed inside of the bag…

  227. brandi says:

    i have been looking for the perfect pattern for a clutch that has a glove style hand hold… hard to describe but the “handle” is on the side of the clutch and your fingers slide in like a glove and you grip the bottom of the clutch. that sounds so awful, but they look cool!

  228. Ashley says:

    Love the bag and the name is fitting for it. I would enjoy sewing this up!

  229. Amanda says:

    I am a musician and I have trouble finding bags to carry my music in and that can be zipped closed. Part of the problem is music varies in size–any where from 5 x7 inches to orchestral folder size which is around 14x 16 inches.

    I’m always looking for a purse that looks as amazing full (or overfull) as it does near empty, but isn’t overly stiff. Must have pockets and a place for my crochet hooks as well. Final requirement is that it can take a beating and come out on top.
