I’ve found a mistake!
This pattern does have some known errors.
Incorrect cutting information on some paper patterns: Please follow cutting out guide on first page of booklet. The errors are as follows: 1 – Pattern Piece D Flap: pattern piece should read “Cut 1 outer, cut 1 lining, cut 1 fusible fleece, cut 2 medium weight interfacing”; 2 – Pattern Piece G Back strap tunnel: pattern piece should read “Cut 1 outer or contrast, cut 1 medium weight interfacing”; 3 – Pattern Piece I Zip and slip pockets: pattern piece should read “Cut 1 outer, cut 2 lining, cut 3 medium weight interfacing”.
Paper Piece B Lining measurements: Some of the paper patterns have the measurements reversed on the cutting out page for Paper Piece B Lining. The correct measurements are 13″ x 12″ (33cm x 30cm). The paper pattern piece, label, and PDF patterns are all correct.
Material requirements: You may need 1 5/8yds (1.5m) of medium weight interfacing for this bag.
RECOMMENDED FABRICS: Please review the back of the pattern cover for recommended fabrics. Shop our selection of Cork Fabric or Faux Leather, for a designer finish. We also offer quality Interfacing and Stabilizers
