A pressie for my Mum

A big happy birthday to my Mum ...but what to make someone who has lots of stuff? Hmm...
I made her a bag, in her colours so I hope she likes it because they are the exact opposite of my colours!  I also popped in a vinyl front on the first pocket and then covered a boo-boo with buttons!

I still hold true to my review here...  the pattern for this bag is terrible & if I could, I'd ask for a refund but after I've seen the designer bully other customers, I'm not game to become one of her victims. I'm trying to make seventeen of these darn bags, one for every dollar that I spent on the ridiculous pattern.
If you wonder why I don't want to spread joy about this bag, it's because the designer is a bully.  This is a screenshot where the designer bullied a customer for asking about her order in a Facebook group that was especially for the orders:

What is a bully? 
Well, I've taken this quote from a handout for school kids: A bully is a person who purposely tries to hurt or intimidate others -- simple explanation.
Now can you see why I'm not so keen on this pattern as it supports a very unprofessional 'designer'.  This is just one of the many comments that she has made and it's just not right.

Have you ever been cyber-bullied? It's not on, bullies are weak-minded beings.


  1. I too have bought this pattern and it is probably the worst written pattern I have ever bought. Pages and pages of waffle. I edited it down to a few pages before I tackled it. I made one bag and never again. Her Craftsy page used to be full of vitriol against the designer of the Sew Together bag - very unprofessional

  2. It is so sad and disappointing that ST is being unprofessional to many of her customers. I have recommended buying her pattern to many quilters and now very sorry I did. It seems Crafty will not get involved, which is also disappointing.

  3. This is awful ! Very unprofessional designer.

  4. You have made a beautiful item though, job wel done :) xx
