    This is a great basic pattern, easy to follow instructions, very few pages to glue together and a quick sew!. It is the perfect blank canvas to make it your own.

    Refreshingly quick and simple pattern. Works great as a blank canvas to let your creativity flow. I used sweatshirt fleece and added a gold zip down the middle. The kind of pattern I will use again and again. I am really pleased with my purchase.
