    My last bowtuck, I used the regular Pellon fleece (about the same wt. as the fusible), and spray basted it. About $4/yd savings on the fleece.

    That's what I love about patterns, they are like recipes for chilli. So many different ways to get a great outcome! :)

    I guess this might be a weird question, but I was thinking of getting this pattern, and now wondering does the pattern just have instructions with the size of everything, but not actual pattern pieces to cut out to go by?

    No pattern pieces, but it is really easy cutting. All squares and rectangles. I know you can do it! :)

    I havent purchased pattern yet - wasnt sure if I could actually make one - you tute is a big help though . Love the extra detailing around bottom and the name one it. - I was wondering if you could use the desigh that you did around bottome for the strings on side and maybebe even the handles. Thanks for sharing. I have bookmarked site cheryl :thumbup:

    Looking back at your tutorial, when putting in the inside pockets, do we go only by the pattern size for the inner pockets or can we make them how tall from the bottom of the bag we desire, and what is a good distance to stop at from the top of the bag on the inside? Sorry if I make no sense.

    You can make them however you like. I would get a newspaper and cut the size you want just to try it out. Also, make sure the top of you inside pocket is at least 1 1/2 to 2 inches from the top of the bag.

    Keep in mind that your button should be above the top of your inside pockets where you sew it on.

    I thought the pattern instructions left a lot to be desired but I was able to muddle through. Once you get one done, the second, third and so on are a breeze to make.

    And I love this purse. All the pockets are FAB!!!

    Have always wanted to make one of the bags, after seeing your pictorial I ordered the pattern. Your page is bookmarked now just waiting to receive the pattern. Can start to pick out material. And I have lots of pony beads. Yippee/

    Ok I am in the midst of this all. lol... I have everything cut out, bottoms, tops, and outer pocket finished. Now I need to know do I stitch together my inside lining to bag, and then add inside pockets all around, and stitch up the pockets to only my lining or through the lining and outer bag too? I am getting there. Just need a little clarity at the end here. I hope this is ok?

    Put pellon on each piece then put pockets on then ..

    Put the inside together, then the outside. Then you put them to each other.

    Please forgive me if I am a pest, but I have another question. I am confused on my pockets inside. Do I sew the bottom piece for the pockets all the way across to the lining? If I do then how do I sew the places where I stitch up to make the individual lines. Those places will pooch out with not an easy way to sew at the bottom to the lining? Does this make sense? Or are the bottom of the pockets not sewn to the lining just vertically to the lining to make individual sections?

    Sew the bottom of pocket straight across, then flip up and start each pocket section at the bottome of the pocket (top stitching) take you foot of machine.

    No problem.

    Thank you so much. So this is what helps to take in some of the extra pocket that extends past the sides of the lining. I am glad you are patient with me. I deal with several autoimmune disorders that give me brain fog, and I get confused easily.

    No problem. I have a friend with lupus and sometimes her meds and flare ups aren't very fun.

    I made mine today in a class at my LQS. From what I was told, there is a newer version of the pattern with much clearer instructions.
