Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The written instructions are detailed but I would not class this as an 'easy' pattern and you do need to have some sewing skills. There is not a printable pattern so you need to measure and cut out your pieces following written instructions and there are lots of links to separate instructions for certain parts of the pattern so the easiest thing is to print the pattern out, mark off the pieces as you cut them and then check the links as given. I am afraid I gave up part way through and changed the bag as I found it difficult to follow some of the instructions.
