The pattern:
The Stanley Satchel sewing pattern features easy-to-read comprehensive instructions, pattern pieces, and colour photographs. The downloadable PDF pattern features printable pattern pieces and a text only section to save on ink and paper costs.

It is written in UK English and has been thoroughly tested by a team of expert pattern testers. Although this bag can be sewn on a domestic sewing machine, our testing team recommends not using thicker fabrics (such as leather, or some faux leathers and vinyls) for your first make on a domestic machine.
