Ascent Tester Round-Up!

We are thrilled to share with you all of the incredible sews completed during the testing of the Ascent Backpack and Tote! Many of our testers created multiple versions of the Ascent, so we have put together a compilation of those sews, which will help you conceptualize what this pattern looks like in different fabrics and bases. This is also a fantastic resource for supplies, as we include fabric and hardware sources. Enjoy perusing this compilation. I hope you love all of the iterations of the Ascent as much as I do!
