Measurements Please!!!
Thank you for the pattern clarifications. They are definitely appreciated. However, please make it clearer by giving us measurements. I personally am just not good enough at this to be able to guess the measurements from a computer screen. This is the first time that I've attempted to use an e-pattern from Sew New's web extras, and it will most likely be my last. It's been a great big headache!

Test square for scale reference?
Thanks for putting the pattern into one file (though like mdinkfield, I would've preferred measurements). However, the PDF still needs a test square, such as a 4" box, to indicate scale. Without it, users can't confirm their printout is scaled correctly. This test square is standard on all e-patterns I've seen, and I'm disappointed that it's missing here.
Thank You
Thank you for sending the clarification instructions for the bag pattern fix. Although I would have preferred just the measurements, printing the pattern pieces is at least a start.
Bag Pattern Fix
I'm so sorry for all the confusion this has created and apologize for not addressing it sooner. As you will see the pattern is now in one link. In order to print it out please either click on the link above for the handy printing guide or read below. In order to print any e-pattern you will need to download (or you may already have it on your computer) the computer program called Adobe Reader. This is a free download. You can also use Adobe Acrobat but this is only available by purchasing it. Either one will allow you to print e-patterns. In Adobe Reader go to the Print Dialogue box. Select 'Poster' which is under 'Page Sizing & Handling'. Make sure that 'Cut Marks and Labels' is selected as well. Ensure that 'Documents and Markups' is selected under the 'Comments & Forms' area. You can also increase the 'Overlap' to .5 inches. Hit 'Ok' and then hit print. After all the pages have printed lay out the pages according to the e-pattern guide. The link is located above. If you are still having problems please leave questions here (this page will be monitored more closely) or at sewingeditorial@gmail.com. Thank you, Jill

Web extra?
What kind of a web extra is it when after 2 months, NO ONE from Sew News has responded at all to problems with this pattern?
yet another pattern with only part of it
totally fed up with the blue jean Queen pattern thought I would try the cushions Along the Lines and only part of the pattern will print. I will never buy this magazine again,,what a waste of money
Very bad presentation
I hope you will get the correct measurements and let us know what they are.
get measurements from screen
I got the measurements by putting my monitor's screen either at 50%, 25% or 100%, depending on the size of the pattern and measuring the pattern from the screen. I got: body - 15.5x12.25 side panel - 6.75 x 12.5 (this is 1/4 inch higher than the body - don't know which one is correct yet. I guess I'll just pick one. handles - 3.5 x 22 anchor - 3 3/8 square side pockets 6.75 x 8 denim pocket 8 x 15.5 base panels 6 7/8 x 15.5 (the 6 7/8 is 1/8 wider than the side panel (??) The triangular pockets are made by cutting the body panel and inserting the zipper, as far as I can see.
Very disappointed
This is the worst pattern I have ever encountered. The pattern pieces were not professional at all, they didn't have any measurements or instructions. I have been sewing for years and this is my first subscription to this magazine which I am realizing may be a mistake. Maybe there should be some proof reading prior to publishing. I also clicked on other links for downloads to see if they were any better but links did not work.
Denim Tote missing pattern pieces
I reported the missing pattern to SN today. Info being sent to head office...hopefully a download update relatively soon??? Maybe!!! Sewing instructions (not great ones) are in the magazine with the article Pgs. 66-69. I'm waiting, too! Looks like zipper triangle drops down about 6" from top at an angle (see pg.68 #3) and about 3 1/2" in from each side seam. Angled down to the corner would take the 7" zipper they suggest. Don't sew over the metal teeth in the side seam or you'll break your needle. Any suggestions from others? jan
Denim tote
I also was unable to print the pattern correctly. Some pieces printed OK on legal size paper but others did not. Pleas send me measurements of tote and the missing piece. dander

Denim Tote Pattern
I'm unable to print the pattern to scale. I also agree with the other posts; where are the directions? This isn't the first time I've had problems with Sew News pattern downloads. ext
Denim Tote Pattern
I agree with everyone else, why would you create separate links to download with a series of squares? Wouldn't be better to list the measurements and put in one file? I'm not sure I understand the reasoning behind it. I'm a designer and create manuals and instructions all of the time, I can help! Lol!

Denim Tote Pattern
I am disappointed in your pattern files, especially the way they are presented in your pdf files. It wasn't until I wasted many sheets of paper that my husband found that the page size is 8.5 x 14 inches. I'm willing to bet that less than 1% of your readers have printers that handle legal-size paper. Furthermore, all your pattern pieces are nothing more than rectangles. You could print the dimensions for all of the rectangles on less than one piece of paper. That would save everyone a lot of time, paper and frustration.
Instructions????
are there instructions somewhere?
Denim Tote
I have had trouble getting the patterns to print. They print one page, but not the whole part of the pattern. I did contact Sew News, but no one responded.
Print Pattern
I sent pattern pieces to adobe and printed the pieces there.
pattern dimensions
I did it! I figured the sizes by the illustrations and made the tote. Body Panel: 14" x 11",Pocket 7 x 14,side panel 6 x 11,side pocket 6 x 7, base 14 x 6, handles 28x 3, anchor 3x3. I didn't make the zipper pockets. Hope this helps, ladies!
pattern piece missing
in the above pattern pieces, you have lieft out the pocket panel triangle and the main pocket panel that are mentioned in the instructions
pattern doesn't fit on pages
Could you please give us the measurements of the pattern pieces? They are too big to print out on a single page.
