I have made the Chelsea a few times. In fact I am teaching it on
My great-nephew got one for last Christmas and he liked it enough to
say he was going to carry it on his trip to visit his dad. <VBG>
(Which I consider high praise from a 10 year old.)
You do need a good needle, I recommend a denim size 14 or 16 for the
construction because there are some pretty thick seams.
Since you choose the fabric, this can be a really versatile pattern.
Can be a bit "girly" or very masculine in tone. I like the way the
strap is zippered to that it can be a one-shoulder sling bag, or a
back pack style.
