Simplicity Pattern 1556 Drawstring Organizer is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by KateBA from Photos not representative of the finished product I bought this pattern after seeing the photos on the website, thinking it would create a hefty-sized tote/organizer for my knitting and other needlework projects. When the pattern arrived, there were no finished measurements given on the envelope. The first photo on the website (showing a tailgate theme, multiple rows of pockets and a corded handle) wasn't included in the pattern pieces. Although they appear to be different sizes, the organizers shown on the envelope are all the same size which is definitely not adequate for anything other than small amounts of stuff. For example, the circular base is only 6 3/4" in diameter, which is about the size of a coffee cup saucer. The height of the organizer is only 7 1/2" (not counting the drawstring area), which is smaller than the width of a standard sheet of printer paper. For starters, Simplicity should remove the first photo on their website because it is definitely NOT included in the pattern envelope. Secondly, Simplicity should include finished dimensions on both the website and the pattern envelope. (Those of us who purchase patterns online don't have the luxury of being able to open a pattern and measure the pieces before purchasing. I suppose this pattern is cute enough if all you want is cute but small organizer. But it's not what I expected and I'm very disappointed.
