I haven't tried your pattern yet (but it looks great!). I just wanted to point out a *possible* typo in your new 2015 revised version. The last page, under "Cutting," refers to "The remainder of Fabric B" and "Fabric C" however there is no reference to Fabric B or C (or A) anywhere else in the pattern. I noticed your previous version *does* refer to those letter designations, but your newer version does not. If I am reading it wrong and the error is on my part, I apologize :)

Yes, you are right. I can't tell you how many times I proofread this and missed the B and C. It should read 2 and 3. I was trying to make this more consistent with the fabric designations when using pre-quilted fabrics. I've changed it and will upload the new PDF. The changes are only on the last page.

I understand - I'm a freelance editor and find that it's more difficult to see your own mistakes than it is to see the mistakes of others :) I'm looking forward to trying your pattern and would like to thank you for making it available to everyone!

Have made the Tote Bag and gave out as a gift this Xmas. It was well received and looking forward to making more of this one and the larger tote. I made myself patterns from a roll of brown paper so I do not have to measure all the time. Thanks and keep creating beautiful patters for us who like to sew but do not have the talent to make our own designs.
