Looks fabulous finished - not a beginners pattern - some parts need to be read and re read

I agree with Gaia's mom. I love the concept, and really wanted to make several of these. But, the directions were very difficult to follow. Even after reading, reading again, and rereading the directions, I still have no idea how these side zippers are supposed to be inserted. I disregarded the directions completely, and sewed them in the manner that looked best to me. The directions are hard to follow and the sketches don't make any sense. My opinion - don't waste your money on this pattern until the directions are updated! At the very least there should be color photos!

I find it very challenging to follow. Directions are messy and don't follow a coherent order. For example, the author says we need three 9" zippers, but then she shows where to use two of those and the third should be shorter as it is for the inside pocket. I even asked my mother-in-law who has a wide experience in sewing and she can't understand the directions. It's a shame.

Wonderful pattern, directions were easy to follow & loved that the measurements to cut were presented two ways. Made two of them for the grandkids for Valentines Day, they absolutely loved them & use them whenever they are in the car.
