Loved making this front pocket !! so much easier than it looks ! Charlotte Salvi-Ganichaud from Les envies de Charlotte

This is a wonderful pattern. The front pocket gives it a designer look. And the size is perfect for your basics. I can't wait to make another. Linda Myra DeRyder from MyCreativeBranch

My first Saddle Bag beginner version. I'm a newbie but the pattern was well written and had pictures to make it doable for me. It was a learning experience as well. Linda Hamilton

Welcome to DesignBlanche. I am DesinBlanche designer Catherine. I love design & art and enjoy making something beautiful & functional. Once I started making a bag in a quilting class about 20 years ago, I was hooked. Since then I have come this far. This is my creative outlet and helps me relax and relieve stress. It's such a satisfying activity as a middle aged woman :)
