Summer Satchel
Would you please send me a pattern I can print. I have the directions from the magazine...thanking you so much
Written instructions
Are there written instructions somewhere for putting this bag together? I was able to print out the pattern, but knowing how to put it together might be nice. :) Thanks!
Summer Tote Bag
I am looking for the written instructions to make the summer tote bag.
How to use and print e-patterns
There is a link above for help in printing out e-patterns. It necessary to follow the directions in order to get the pattern to print out to the correct sizing. I have also created a tutorial on the blog with step by step instructions and photos of how to work with e-patterns. Below is the link for the tutorial.
I'm on the step that says, "With right sides together, align the body and pocket-backing body; stitch the lower edge." Which parts am I putting together exactly. Cute bag, just wish it was a bit more clear on the instructions.

I got it! You have to do it in "poster size" instead of portrait or landscape in your print options. It prints out 6 pages and then I taped them all together. VERY EASY
I have tried every way to print this pattern and it dose not work. PLEASE FIX IT
I download pdf patterns daily. This one does not work and is so frustrating that it keeps being posted as a free pattern!!! I would love to make this but can't keep printing patterns that don't work. Please help
open the pattern in PDF adobe, and the measurements are there, if you select 100%
I had to uncheck the "fit to size" print option and then the pieces printed correctly.
This pattern needs a size for the completed bag so I can tell if the pattern I printed is the correct size.
to get full size, you must change the % to 100% it will print full size
Try to download & print the pattern but it does not print to pattern correctly it is very small and it does not print the full pattern Is there a way that this issue can be corrected so the pattern & pages can be printed. HELP{
unable to print pattern to actual size
I agree,what good is this pattern with no measurements. Is this a what ever you want pattern to play with?
Yes, we need directions on how to enlarge pattern to size. Especially being there is no measurements to go by.
the printed pattern seems too small
Do you have a method for enlarging the pattern?

I have tried several times to print out a copy of the summer satchel. For some reason, I do not have the tiling option on my computer. So please post a printable version fo this very cute bag.
