The pdf pattern for the Carriers Conquest has 43 pages of instructions which include 109 step by step colour photos. Printing instructions and test squares to check scale are included.

16 Pattern pieces are included as well as cutting measurements so you can choose which method you prefer to cut by! Measurements for both Metric and Imperial are included!

PLUS a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions (9 pages) comes bundled with your pattern for printing purposes, should you not need or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

Do you like pockets? The Carriers Conquest is LOADED with pockets so you can be super organised. This was the first of my patterns to feature my unique quick access phone pocket. I can't live without that now and you won't be able to either!

Also featuring two spacious top edge zipper pockets, with the front zipper pocket also containing two slip pockets. The roomy centre compartment closes with a flap and magnetic snap.

Inside are two more slip pockets and a clever pocket which I designed to hold a wallet up to the ChrisW Designs Penny Inn size.

Make your bag from all fabrics or a combination of fabric and vinyl or pleather. Choose from making your own strap connectors or using metal connectors for added bling!
