The pattern comes with either a top zipper version or a flap version. I made the top zipper version for the test, but just got in the hardware for the flap version. It also comes with directions and tips for using faux leather (vinyl). The bag finishes to about 10.5" high x 14.5" wide x 5" deep. The handle drop is 11" (28" in length). It is a really nice sized shoulder bag. My test version secures with a top zip and has two divided slip pockets and one zipper pocket inside.
And now let's look at the Isobel Grab & Go Crossbody Bag:

Isobel Grab & Go Crossbody Bag finishes to 11" high x 10" wide x 3" deep, making her a perfect sized bag to carry everyday. The interior is loaded with even more pockets that go all the way around inside!!! As with the Eve bag, the directions are excellently written and easy to follow. It is labeled as an advanced pattern and, once again, has faux leather (directions). You can order your own Isobel Grab & Go Crossbody Bag pattern here (or if you want to order one already made, you may contact me privately).
