    Thank you for this fantastic pattern, and it’s even FREE. I sew for foster children and this is the perfect little cross body bag for teen girls to carry their little essentials! It is so perfect! The design is rather easy to put together and directions understandable. There will be some teen girls who are helped so much by this little bag. It’s easy to use a variety of fabrics on this.

    Please help! Ive double checked that I cut all the pieces the right size, and sewed it all to the instructions. But when I went to step 6, to sew the pocket panel to the exterior back panel, the back panel is shorter than the pocket panel so it won’t line up. Also what’s meant to happen with the back panel top piece after being sewn in step 6 as it’s not mentioned again. I’m so confused, sorry and thank you.

    I made the Dolly (at 120%) for a 6 year old to carry all her treasures. The pattern directions are excellent, clear, and easy to follow.

    This was the first bag I ever made and it was much easier than I thought it would be. The instructions were clear and easy to follow!! My version was not the prettiest but my 5 year old loved it lol. Will definitely try my hand at it again! Thank you

    This is the perfect on the go bag for me. I like that it is small but yet big enough to carry the essentials. The pattern was easy to follow and it was a fun project. I’m sure I will be making another one of these soon!

    I love this little bag! I got to the part where I was supposed to attach that back pocket, and was thoroughly confused. The pocket was too big! I simply could not figure out how/where to attach it. I came back here onto Swoon and looked at the photographs of the Dollie bags that others had created. Then I realized what I had done. I had missed that note on the pattern that said to fold that pattern piece over before cutting the pocket! Luckily I found that note (which was VERY clearly stated on the pattern) before I sewed it on wrong! It turned out great. Now that I’ve completed one (and know how to read instructions), I’m ready to do another one!

    This bag pattern went together very well. I did have to pay close attention to the diagrams for cutting the pieces, but they fit together perfectly. I really like that it is a small size, but holds all my important stuff. Just finished it and am already planning to make another one! I very much appreciate the time and effort you put into creating this pattern.
