  1. Hi Eunice! Looks like you have to register for free with the website and then you can receive the pattern. I just had it e-mailed to you. My e-mail is “[email protected]” so that you won’t think it’s spam. ~ Thanks!

  2. Hi, I cannot download the pattern for the laptop bag. Can you assist me or send me the pattern? Thanks

  3. For the knitted shopping bag, I adapted the pattern to use the magic loop method of knitting with circular needles so that I did not need dp needles. Thank you for the free pattern.
