What's in the kit?
I made the small sling bag, which is still very large, and I had plenty of fabric left over. You'll also need matching thread, fusible woven interfacing (like Pellon Shapeflex 101), fusible fleece, and a small amount of Peltex to complete the bag.
The pattern was pretty easy to follow, but I did have some hairy moments. Some of the pattern pieces are used multiple times, but you have to fold at dashed and/or solid lines for the right piece, so I found myself triple and quadruple checking before cutting. I appreciated that the pattern included a complete glossary of terms, so if you're self-taught like me it's nice to have. Also included is a complete cutting layout. This is a bonus for me, because I find cutting the longest step of every bag, and most of that time is spent thinking out the best, most efficient way to cut the fabric. I should also mention that every piece has a pattern, so you don't have to measure anything out. The pattern consists of mainly text with sparse diagrams. I think more diagrams would make it a bit more beginner friendly, but the instructions are clear enough that a beginner should be able to make this bag, not as a first project though.
