Cute bag but horrible instructions Review by Terry
Rating

The instructions for the zipper install on this bag are completely wrong. The instructions even tell you to sew the zipper in such a way it ends up wrong side up. Also the picture of the zipper install is so bad that if you sew your zipper in to look that way, the bottom of the bag won't lay flat. I had to do the zipper three times to make it work right....and the only reason I was able to get it to work at all is because I am an experienced sewist. The design of the bag is really cute and worthwhile....but some attention needs to be directed to creating some decent instructions for the zipper install. If you are NOT experienced with unconventional zipper installs, you should NOT buy this pattern.
