Note from the designer
Hello everyone. I was pointed out in January 2015 that there were possibly errors in the pattern. I turned this in in 2012, and since then have a different computer so I don't have any of the original templates or files, so I'm not able to compare my original work with what appeared in the magazine or on the magazine's website. I do want to revisit the pattern one day, but haven't had a chance up until now. Since I can't verify the pattern, I'd suggest choosing a different project; I do have other free patterns on my site under the 'Tutorials' tab on Sew Sweetness. I hate that this shows my work in a negative light, and I hope you will check out some of the other free bags on my site (the Kennedy Bag or the Brookfield Bag are two of the most popular free ones I have to offer). I apologize for any inconvenience! -Sara
instructions do not work
The directions and pattern for the handles do not work. And yes they are too small. I agree with all the other comments. Don't worry if you can't open the file, save yourself the headache and from wasting fabric. Just goes to show that everything that is on the internet or on Pinterest, is not real
Re: convertible clutch
The instructions are SO confusing!! It mentions attaching the handle linings at one point but there is no other mention of handle linings anywhere else- is this the craft backing (which btw is not sold at the website mentioned)? Also, there is NO mention of adding seam allowances to the pattern pieces. I hope I save someone else this problem- I did not add any since it was not mentioned (and I was trying to follow the confusing instructions to the letter!) and the handles ended up too thin to sew properly with the button already attached. I was too far along to start over so my expensive fabrics and sloppy clutch is now a play thing for my preschooler. Not sure if I want to attempt a second.
Por favor podria enviarme el patron a mi correo...muchas gracias. Tengo el mismo problema que los comentarios anteriores.
Why aren't any of the pattern pieces labeled? Which half piece goes to which other piece?????
