    Yes I agree with all of the above, I started this pattern tonight and cannot believe how poorly explained it is…..aghhh!

    Question to those who completed this bag: Do you remember how you attached the corner bands? The pattern is explaining it as if you attach them before sewing the corners together which makes no sense to me…..also the measured corners seem much smaller than the cut out corners of the bag fabric.

    I think I can figure out the rest but it’s the getting started piecing together that I am having trouble with.

    Anyhow any tips would be much appreciated!

    Completed the bag after getting muddled with the 2 sets of measurements on the pattern. Cut the bag to 83cm wide not 110cm. It turned out not bad in the end with a few pleats here and there.

    This instructions are impossible to follow. I was preparing myself for this bag for quite some time now. It is so confusing. When I looked at the diagram I tough this would be easy.

    I thought this pattern was very difficult to follow. It would be great to have a tutorial. I got very frustrated trying to follow the instructions. I got it made but it don’t look like the one in the picture.

    I’m in the midst of making this bag, and am quite confused about where the interfacing comes into play. I don’t know if I’m missing instructions, or if it is just that I’m not interpreting the directions properly. Bit of a noob here, anyone have some guidance to share? Thanks fellow sewers!

      You’re right, there’s no mention of the im the instructions…

      I’m guessing a little, but it may be used to reinforce the fabric where you’ve stitched the straps. That would make sense since the area bears a lot of stress. Not sure what other sewists would think…

      I’m sure you’ve finished by now, but in case anyone else is wondering, the grey pattern pieces are the ones that get interfaced. For some reason this pattern doesn’t include the key that explains this.
