“A satchel is a bag, often with a strap. The strap is often worn so that it diagonally crosses the body, with the bag hanging on the opposite hip, rather than hanging directly down from the shoulder. They are traditionally used for carrying books. The back of a satchel extends to form a flap that folds over to cover the top and fastens in the front. Unlike a briefcase, a satchel is soft-sided.” – Wikipedia

    Hi Virginia,

    I just clicked through to the pattern 3-4 times and it takes me directly to the correct page. It sounds like your browser (?) There is no advertising attached to the link. Could you try again with a fresh page and let me know how you make out. Thanks
