    Hi Andrea!

    It seems to be that I should make a Estell bag, too. Because You’re not the first on who ask me about pictures to the instructions :)! But at the moment I haven’t really the tome to make one.

    I will try to explain it clearer: In step 3 at first you must fold the pleats at the outer bag piece. But just baste them, not stitch.

    Now the seam allowences from the bag band must be iron inwards (but not on the sides, they will be closed with the side seam oft the bag).

    After ironing you work on the handles. Fold the handles in the middle (right sides facing) and stitch with 1 cm seam allowence. But not the sides, they must be open for turning around now. When you have turning aound the handles, iron and maybe stitch on the right side, too when you want.

    So now, the bag band and the handles come together. Baste the handles on the marked lines on the bagband and stitch.

    After this you baste the bagband (with the handles) on the outer bag pieces over the basted pleats on the right side. Stitch now all together.

    I hope it’s clear enough!

    Best wishes for sewing, Diana

    The Ottobre is a magazine with pattern inserts like the Burda magazines, connected in the center of the magazine with instructions. If you go to the website on the left menu click on English so you can view and read the site: /. You can view what is in each magazine and order them from the site or subscribe. They are really easy to follow instructions as I have been buying their magazine for a few years. Now if your looking for some fun different patterns in envelope type patterns you should try Farbenmix patterns at : /index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_2 . Now not all patterns are available in english but they have a website that gives you an english version you print yourself to go with your ordered pattern. But check out some of the pattern companies on banberryplace.com, they have a pretty good selection of unique patterns for kids and even a few for adults.
