I've been working on this bag forever and it's been a beast for me to do. I
 set it aside more than once to think on it.The directions could be better.
 I spent a lot of time just thinking, and pinning and then the light bulb w
ould light and I could do another section. Now I mostly hav finish seams to
 do. It could be lined but I've put so much time into this ting I just want
 it to be done for now. Perhaps in the fall I'll make a lining for it.
I bought a kit and then fond out the pattern, which is free had to be downl
oaded from Noodlehead.
I want to make another one eventually but I really need a rest from it righ
t now.
My camera is not working right now so no pictures.

Looks fabulous, but I can understand being frustrated if the  
directions are not clear.  Good luck!

That's the one, Now that  I've made it I know where my problems came. there
 are some pieces that the directions have you cut more than you need. that  
wasn't a big deal. the directions just take time to decode, at least for me
. The biggest problem is attaching the zipper and bottom gusset. Itends up  
being one piece and there's a lot of ease to work in nice and smooth. You a
re working with quilted fabric and thick seams. After doing this piece ,I'l
l never complain about trying to set in a sleeve.

Congratulations on tackling such a complicated project, and sticking  
with it through the rough patches.  It will be a great bag when you  
are done.

I have this thing, If I start something I will work on it forever. I refuse
 to let a piece of fabric win.
