Are you ready for a large dose of inspiration?! I cannot wait to show you all versions of the Alice bucket bag & Alice backpack that my pattern testers made! They used a variety of fabrics, colours and prints. Few adjustments have been made, some on purpose, others by accident, but each and every Alice bucket bag and backpack is beautiful and unique!
Pattern testers feedback
“This is such a cute bag and I like that it can be made as a crossbody style or backpack. You could also mix and match by adding the flap to the crossbody style or just use the drawstring closure on the backpack style. The pockets are great to keep things in their place and I love the shape of the bag.” @patchoulimoonstudio
“This Alice bucket bag and backpack is a must have. The inside pocket is great while leaving most of the space open for your stuff. There are many ways you can customize this bag or backpack, and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.” @edgeanddolor
“It was a pleasure to sew the Alice backpack. Not too big and not too small, just a perfect size for everyday use. It’s very roomy inside, and what I really like is the keychain strap inside the bag! A new pattern has been added to my favorites!” @May Dee Designs
“This bag was a fun make! Not too difficult and includes options to customize your finished project to your needs. I will make it again. Good size for the essentials when you don’t want to carry a ton of stuff.” @ovesonlife
“I LOVE the pattern, maybe it’s my fabric choice :-). It sews together very easy and quickly. The “hardest” part could be the front pocket, but if you go slow it’s absolutely doable for a beginner.” @iamglendasam
“This pattern is so well written with step by step instructions and pictures. If you love a smaller sized bag option, this is perfect for you! And who doesn’t love having all the pockets!” @hilltop_stitches
“I love this pattern! It was easy to make. I’m not a fan of drop in lining but that is easily changed next time I make it. Pattern was well written, concise and easy to follow.” @Bagsandbling50
“The pattern is super easy to follow and understand. I really liked how the pattern is indexed so you can easily find what section you need.” @Neadas homemade
“A fabulous pattern and 2 for 1, backpack and crossbody! Went together really well and even the grommets …… I will use them again for sure.” @Peg Coombes
“First time doing anything with grommets! I’m in love with the outcome! The bag looks amazing (even my hubby said he loves it).” @bunfordorsi
“The backpack is definitely for a young active person. It will hold a lot. My niece has her eye on it for a birthday gift.” @Pattyodesigns
“Alice is a fun and a fairly quick sew. It is a adventurous beginner pattern, just because of the front pocket.” @J Spears Designs
“This pattern is very thorough and detailed. Super easy to assemble. And is a really cute bag!” @Debbie Lynn’s Closet
“My 1st time putting grommets on a bag, once I got the hang of it, it went together very well.” @Sheonte Douglas
“The most difficult part is the front pocket. The rest of the bag is easy to put together.” @anarosieocasio
“This was a very nice sew. I really enjoyed it.” @Joolie125
“This is a great size knapsack type bag for everyday carry.” @bagsandmorebysabrina
“It is a nice little backpack and love the card slots and pocket. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.” @Colette Straatsma
