    Anyone working on one that can give a tute?
    Read directions but not clear.bought a panel so don`t want to srew it up.
    Do you all use fuseable batting?
    I made a bag before and just put 2 pieces of fabric with batting and quilted it.
    Are the sides a different piece?
    Thanks Gale

    Ok, here are pics of the front outside pocket I remember it was a little confusing the first time for me too, so I took pics in case someone else needed help.

    Ok, the first picture is "sew the front pocket piece to the front pocket lining piece..." "fold in half right sides together ... and press"

    The second pictures is Open and fuse PFF to the wrong side of the pocket along the line you just created..." Please keep in mind this was my first one and I was more concerned with directions than perfection. :)

    the third picture is stitch along sides.

    I am working on posting the last few pics for the outside picket.

    the first pic here is "turn, and press."

    The next pic is step 7. and the pic after that show it on.

    Again, this was my very first bag and I just did the basic steps to practice. The last one is a bag I made for my daughter.

    Hi Gale, I just finished mine and I too was a little confused with the pattern directions. I am more of a visual person so I think I had to read them about 4 times before I started cutting and sewing.

    There are no separate side pieces. The sides are formed by joining the front and back and boxing the corners (step 13). If you are using panels, these will then wrap around to form the sides. I used fusible fleece on both the lining and outside portions. I also quilted both lining and front and back in a cross-hatch pattern. I think it looks better quilted and the fleece will stay put between the fabrics especially if down the road you decide it needs to be washed.

    Good luck with yours and post some pics. I plan to do so as soon as I add my button and cover my bottom insert.

    Thank goodness you posted these pictures. I was very excited to dig in, but didn't understand the first step. Your pictures helped immensely. Thank you!!

    Thank you for the pictures. I, too, am trying to make my first bag. I have to admit the directions aren't very clear and missing a few steps. Thank goodness for people who know what they're doing!

    I've quilted the outside pocket. I can't find in the directions when to sew the outside pocket to the outside fabric. Step 2 says to sew bottom to outside top. It doesn't say anything about sewing the bottom of the pocket in that seam. I'm getting very confused. Somewhere in here I have to quilt the upper part of the bag. Isn't the outside pocket going to be in the way?

    Anyone know of a pattern that has drawstrings about two inches from the top and draws from the sides? Thnaks.

    I didn't see directions as to when to attach the pocket. I had the bag assembled for the most part before I saw the picket sitting there, detached! I was able to attach it before whip stitching the lining closed, but I had to be careful about not catching in part of the bag. After you quilt the outside pieces, I would place and stitch it then.
    Here's my first attempt without the side ties. I may still add them, depending on what I choose to do with the bag.

    I think blue would be perfect! I did add the side ties and like it better now, but I'm still not sure I like the pocket material. I thought it went together well when I bought it, but the assembled product doesn't work so well.

    I think I will make paper pattern pieces for this since I plan to make several for gifts. It's really time consuming to measure each piece for cutting.

    Does this bag gather at the top?

    The ties are attached for about 4 inches on each side, so you can cinch it up for about 2-3 inches on each side. It doesn't completely close the bag by any means.
