Ella Carry-All

Grand Revival Ella Carry-All sewn by Chris Warmer, Pugsmom

According to Chris, the Grand Revival Ella Carry-All is an easy and very user-friendly pattern. She liked the pattern as is, but went a step further and added a waterproof layer to the bottom of her bag. Chris writes, “It was really easy to work with and I am happy with the way my bag turned out.”
