Simplicity 2830- you have brought me to new levels of pattern disappointment with your poor directions, lack of inner lining, too skinny handles and complete miscalculation for zipper size. I added a lining for the pockets and inner compartment, resigned myself to skinny string like handles and completely abandoned the top of the pattern when I realized the 14 inch zipper that it called for was miles too long. I also added a rectangle of interfacing for the bottom, so it would sit nicely. The whole bag might have benefited from interfacing, but I rather like the floppiness of it. This is a pattern that seems to have missed out on the testing phase. I am sure that it would be better used with a home dec weight fabric, but that would not have prevented the totally screwed up top and the fact that I was left with a zipper that was the wrong size and handles that were a mile too long. So there is my warning, but that being said, I love what I ended up with, after all my edits! Now to load it up with diapers and wipes!
