Catch-All Tutorial


I promised to make a tutorial for the catch-all bag I made last week.  Here it is.  I love these bags.  You can use them for almost anything.  This tutorial is a bit more complex than my previous ones.  Please let me know if you have any questions, or if something is unclear.  Enjoy!

  11. Well the way this is set up I can't print it out; the individual pages on the left column takes up so much room that the actual tutorial runs off to the right of the page. Only way I can make it is to read it from the computer screen. I can't seem to make that left column go away. Is anyone else having this problem?

  12. I'm sorry the tutorial isn't printing for you. I have not heard of anyone having problems printing the tutorial. I just went to check it with googledocs and everything looks ok. You can email me at sewingsteph7(at)yahoo(dot)com and I'll send you the PDF file directly.

  13. I made this bag for a friend's birthday last weekend. I modified it by increasing the top section by 3 inches and widened it by 2 inches. I don't have access to those cool zippers with the great tabs that you have, so I found a key fob at the dollar store and attached it to the zipper pull with a small split ring. It turned out beautifully and she loved it. Thanks for the great tutorial.

  14. I'm SO glad to hear that she loved her bag! I'll have to figure out a way to add a flickr group so we can share photos!

  15. Hi,

    Wanted to drop you a note with a link to a page that I have prepared on my blog. I have posted it just today but have not publicized it to anyone yet. I wanted to make sure that you agree to the posting for your tutorial/photo and links before I publicize it on my blog.

    It's not the most visually appealing final list but the best I could gather at this point in my bloggy world knowledge. Let me know as soon as possible whether you agree. Thanks

  18. I love this bag but am having the same problem as another poster. Can't get the whole page because of a part at the side that I can't get rid of. I would love it if you would send me the pattern by email. Angelus5@sympatico.ca
    I hope this pattern is still available. Thanks so much for sharing it.

  22. Okay... I had never seen the gadget in this pattern: "seam allowance disc made by Clover"! Off to google it now :)
    I'm only a year or so behind everyone on this pattern release...found it while exploring blogs from Purse Palooza 2012!

  23. That is a little beauty of a bag. I've just come over from Tip Nut. The pdf came thru fine but it looks complicated so will be a little challenge for me. Thank you for your time in putting this tutorial all together.

    Take care.

  25. I'm confused on step 18. I have the two h's side by side but I can't figure out how you get to the addition sign shape. Please help if possible. Thanks.
