    I tried to download the template pattern for the yin yang tote and was unsuccessful. I tried in on my PC and tried it on my apple through safari. I also tried the additional link in the posts but was again, unsuccessful. Just curious why I can’t seem to download the pattern. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  15. Rose McGeeh says:

    Would like the pattern if possible…I love love this bag….Thank you

  16. Leafy says:

    Has anyone been able to download the pattern yet? :(

  17. Roxanne says:

    The link to the template results in page not found. :(

  18. Angela says:

    I finally got it. I clicked on the little tiny “Pattern YYbag” above the facebook icon. Good luck!

  19. anna says:

    HI there. I’m having the same problem as every one else. Just a suggestion, but maybe a “user friendly” pattern might be helpful. i.e. Imperial measurements for your mostly North American audience.

  20. Cindy says:

    It’s really easy to get the pattern, as mentioned in the comment 2 above mine. Click the little “Pattern YYbag” link above the facebook icon. I can’t wait to make this. It’s a GREAT pattern. Thanks for sharing!!

  21. Lillie says:

    Gorgeous bag! I can’t wait for a bit of time off work so that I can have a go at making it, thank you for sharing. I had no problem getting the pattern :)

  22. ewelina says:

    could I get the pattern by e-mail?
    Tryed and it doesn´t work =/

    1. Caitlin Kelch says:

      Hi ewelina! The link is working for us but we’ve sent the pattern to your email address :) Enjoy!

  23. Joyce Pleier says:

    Would it be possible for you to email me the pattern? I’ve tried to download it to no avail! Love the look of this bag. Would really appreciate it if it would be possible for you to email the pattern! Thank you!

  24. Lotta says:

    Any chance I can get the pattern emailed to me as well? I’ve been planning on making this bag but I can’t get the pattern to download…says the webpage is not available. Thank you so much!

  25. Winnie says:

    Sorry to pester with another template request! The link isn’t working, would it be possible for you to e-mail me the pattern, as well? Thanks SO much for sharing this!

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      I’m afraid we don’t have the template- I emailed the maker when I got your first request but have not heard back.


  26. Barb smith says:

    would love the pattern to be emailed to me as I can’t get the link to work. Thanks a bunch in advance

  27. Cimi says:

    Many thanks


  29. Candy says:

    I am having the same problem unable to get the pattern, has anyone been able to download it? Would love to make this.

  30. Yvonne says:

    I would also like to make this bag but there’s no “little icon” above the Facebook link, so I would also appreciate it if someone could send me the pattern. Kind Regards….Yvonne

  31. Betty Wind says:

    Response to Yvonne – there are several comments above yours that give a link to the pattern for this bag. I had the same problem you did, but found and saved the above link. Good Luck!

  32. Svea says:

    I can’t find the pattern. Can someone send me the pattern?
