When I started carrying pattern downloads,  I asked you to recommend pattern designers that you would like to see me carry.  More than one person recommended Keyka Lou patterns!  That is always a good sign. :-)  Mary made the Easy Reusable Grocery Bag and was kinda enough to share a picture and review of the pattern.

The bag is very well designed.  It is sturdy and perfect for trips to the farmers’ markets.  I had no problem printing the pattern because she has given detailed instructions on scaling and even a 1″x1″ sample square to make sure you’ve printed the handles correctly.

The pattern itself was detailed with pictures and instructions that even a beginner can master.  I made my bag exactly as the instructions said.  However, when I make it again I will increase the size of the bag and lengthen the handles a bit.  Even as a beginner, I am confident that I can alter the size according to my needs because the pattern is so simple.

I would definitely recommend this pattern to everyone.  It might be fun to try it with a laminated fabric or to add your own embellishments like a few rosettes or an maybe an applique.

Thank you, Mary!  I do think you should start a sewing blog just as a journal of your sewing journey. :-)
