Behind every RLR Creations pattern that is published...

     is a team of hardworking and dedicated pattern testers. The unsung heroes! No pattern would ever be as good, or really even make it to publication without them. They all have big jobs on the team that go beyond creating a new bag for themselves. They are the ones that have read the instructions, printed and used the pattern pieces, and completed the new handbag. Feedback on the pattern is also a big responsibility of the testing team, for if they don’t love it and support it, chances are neither will you. 

Talking new handbags and the testing team.. if you need some inspiration for purchasing the new Koala Handbag or are just looking for some amazing ways to combine textiles to make your very own Koala  take a moment to view the fantastic bags made by them and read their feedback on the new pattern.
