I did a class a couple of years ago to make this bag. It has lots of techniques and the idea was to learn when and where to use the different Floriani stabilizers. In the class all of the various pieces were prepared but not fully put together. The bag took much longer to make than the one day class run, so there was quite a bit to construct at home. That is usually not a problem, but the directions accompanying this pattern were very difficult to understand. So….. the bag got packed into a container for “another day”.
Last week that day came and I pulled it out, read through the instructions, thought about it, tried a few things, then got stuck into it. Needless to say, it eventually turned into a completed bag.
It is a beautiful bag, a really useful size with zippered pockets on the outside and pockets inside as well.
