    HI, This is ssooooo cool. PLEASE help with a pattern or at least dimensions?

    very nice and elegant! what's the metal item in step 5?

    This bag has such clean lines which makes it look very elegant. How are the snap buttons holding up? The have to deal with a great deal of load if you put anything heavy in the bag

    If you can save your pattern as a PDF or write the dimensions down (on the template and just take a new photo), many people would try making this. It looks really nice!

    No, you posted a photo of the pattern, that is not a pattern. There are no size dimensions shown on the photo so to a novice, the photo would be of no help.

    I really like this bag, it is simple yet elegant and very functional. It is an example of straightforward and uncluttered design at it's very best. Well done indeed.

    I should have said sewing, not stitching I guess ;)

    What was the name of the tool you used to make multiple holes really quickly?
