  1. Sila

    This is a great pattern! I love the size of both bags, the simplicity of it, and her easy to follow instructions. I will definitely be making more and purchasing other patterns.

  2. Sila pattern

    This is the second pattern I have purchased from Apple Green Cottage and it won’t be the last. The directions are nice and clear and I love their simplicity. My zippers were only 1” wide as opposed to the 1 1/4” suggested. I used my zipper foot with a 1/4” seam allowance and it turned out fine.

  3. My new favorite!

    I have made 6 of these beautiful pouches as gifts. The pattern is written clearly and the pictures are very helpful. I have had so much fun customizing each pouch duo for my friends and family. Excellent pattern!
