There are three sizes of the bag included in the one pattern. Here are the sizes: * Small – 9.75″ across x 6.5″ tall * Medium -12″ across x 8″ tall * Large – 15″ across x 10″ tall
The pattern pieces for the small and medium print over two pages each, the large prints on 4 sheets. You can choose to print just one size or print them all. Printing the instructions is optional. You can view them as you sew on a tablet or laptop to follow the instructions, or you can follow along with the sew-along video.
Sewing video tutorial included
The sewing video is also FREE and is perfect for beginners. I take it really slow and go through everything that you would need to know. I assume that you already understand the basics of sewing and how to use your sewing machine, but everything else is covered in detail so you won’t put a stitch wrong and will get the perfect result for your Bampton Drawstring Bag pattern.
