Have you ever bought a commercial pattern that just drove you nuts?! I was very frustrated with this one.
The bag itself was a piece of cake. It was the insert that gave me fits.
They wanted you to make a "box" first using timtex stabilizer so it is very stiff.
Then sew on the side pockets. I strained my brain trying to figure out how this is possible. How did they expect my sewing machine to do this? Obviously, I was missing something. I ended up taking the thing apart, sewing the pockets to the sides and then sewing the "box". If any of you have made this pattern, would you please explain how you did it?
With removable insert in place. You can also see the zippered pocket I made (not part of the pattern)
From the side.
Turned out to be a huge bag. It will hold everything you would need for a day at the lake or beach.
Happy Easter everyone!
Talk at you later, Rumi
