Did anyone add a handle? I want a handle instead of a tab. Seems like the tabs are more work then they are worth.

1. Tab problem: I cut these at 2" x 3" so I had something to grip while I sewed them down. (no interfacing either). 2. Try sewing the gussets at 1.5" instead of at 2". My homedec outer fabric was so stiff, it was difficult to sew those gussets.
3. match your out fabric weight to your lining weight. Overall, this was a well-written free tutorial. It turned out as I expected. Those gussets can be done by a beginner but you need to read the directions carefully.

The pattern calls for two 1 by 3 inch pieces for the pull. I believe that it's an error as I did the math from the PDF and saw that the original is a 2 by 3 inch piece. This will really help save fifteen minutes of WTF during the beginning construction. :D

I made this last night. I agree with other posters that you need to cut the tabs larger. Pattern was okay, if you hadn't made bags before it would have been quite difficult. I am disappointed with the lack of structure. My bag will only look good when it is stuffed. I would use fusible fleece or soft and stable instead of light interfacing if I made it again.

I'm confused on the last step on page 4. What seam am I sewing? It's not really clear to me. Help!

I am having a lot of trouble figuring out the tabs. Am I supposed to fold lengthwise or widthwise? I did it lengthwise...fold each side toward the middle then folded in half, but it still seems so tiny. Please help me... :/

I am having the same trouble as you are. I think that to get the tabs to look like the pattern example pouch, they need to be cut to 2 x 3" rather than 1 x 3" and then follow the directions as written.

I too had trouble with my tabs so I cut them 3 by 4 inches and folded them opposite of how she said to do it. I like how they turned out. This is a great tutorial by the way!

I had trouble with the tabs too. But I just folded them the opposite way and they were great!

Thank goodness you all posted! I tried for 10 minutes to figure out the tabs, came on here, and realised the issue!

I followed the instructions carefully but wasn't sure how it would turn out. Then Voila! once I turned it right sides was perfect! Clever design and will make great gifts!!
