Great bag! I too have this pattern and am "aging" it. You've got it on bag interfacing. That's usually the key to whether something will be a keeper, or just not practical. Aren't her instructions unique? Love your website too!

Very informative review. I agree with your comments on the interfacing suggestions. I made the Velma bag and found that it needed much heavier interfacing than what was suggested. Her fabrics are awesome! Although I did interface the lining, I was not totally pleased with the final result..it was still a bit *wrinkly* when done. I am thinking of cutting down the size of the lining on my next one..maybe 1/8" all around.

Welcome to PR! I love your bag! I agree with your suggestions to improve the construction directions. Have you considered using plastic canvas instead of cardboard in your bags? That way, it won't be damaged if it gets wet.
