I've been sewing for over 40 years and have never experienced such frustration as this "easy to sew" handbag brought on! The directions are confusing, lack information and don't have pictures that show how to do what you are told to do. One set of instructions is given in step 3, and then again in step 8!
This should have been an easy project, but I have many hours of my valuable time into this bag; each step was excruciatingly slow and difficult to figure out, and I now have a nearly completed handbag, made out of expensive home fashion fabric, that I cannot finish because I can't figure out how to make the darts, which is nearly the last step. Terrible pattern!
