If you were intrigued by my post the other day and thought about purchasing the Sew Together Bag pattern from Sew Demented, go right ahead and do it! I LOVE the finished product.
Intermediate to Advanced. You should be comfortable sewing zippers as the instructions are not written for a beginner level sewist. There are no pictures to help you visualize the steps, although there are a few diagrams which may not be helpful.
The finished product. I can't say enough. Organization heaven!
I'll be honest, the diagrams (especially for step 6), were confusing to me. I should have just went with my gut on how to add the side panels, but because of the diagram, I went against my instincts and ended up having to pull out some seams and re-do. I found this step to be confusing....if you have any experience with bag construction you should be able to get through this fine. If you are just starting out, and haven't had experience constructing bags, pouches or zippered items, you may want to find another pattern. This one may prove to be more frustrating than it is worth.
Again, don't rely on the provided images. They are not to scale, and are somewhat confusing. Read and re-read the instructions and stick with the text....it is more useful. I would also recommend using longer zippers than the pattern calls for. This will make it much easier to sew, and you simply trim them to size after they are installed. I used a 22" for the exterior and 3 12" zippers for the interior pockets.
