Hi I'm Véronique Pinson (you can call me Véro), Sacôtin founder and designer. I'm French and after living in the US (Washington DC) and the UK (Brighton) for a while, I've settled down back in France, in Provence to be precise. I've just launch my line of Bag sewing patterns available both in English and in French. A long-time dream coming true ! #About Sacôtin bag patterns# I create bags that I would like myself and, having very eclectic taste in bags, you will find a great diversity of patterns. For me, bags are the ultimate accessory, the most enjoyable, the accessory that really shows your personality, that allows you to play with styles, to add a touch of fantasy, to have fun and treat yourself. And, because a bag is useful for carrying around all your bits and bobs, it also needs to be practical! #About Sacôtin pattern instructions# I write the instructions just as I would like to read them myself : I put myself in your shoes. I want clear, illustrated instructions that lead me step by step; thus they are something to which I pay particular attention.
