It was a fun and an easy go pattern  with lots of tips on how easily you can get the professional look on the Bags u make..It comes in two versions

The frill that closes with a magnetic snap.

and the vinyl  flap which closes with a twist lock and an add on  interior zippered pocket and  a slip pocket on both the versions


Her bags have a unique “WOW” Factor and I just love the way she has presented the pattern instructions.It was a pleasure to test her Revised version of the Emma Bag With the braided straps and the Vinyl Flaps.

It would be the best Beginner project to work with vinyl.. and just requires your leftover fabrics to work on..

I am happy to share my tester version of the bag emma-bag-1edited

It goes well for adults and kids …


This bag is so cute and pretty that kids and teenagers would definitely love to have it ..
