You did a beautiful job on this. I've done a few of these and it's difficult to get the dimensions of the satchel and lining so perfect. Handles look perfect too!

Amie Wilson asked:
I am having trouble with the assembly portion of this back. I just don't understand the directions for sewing the pleats. Any words of advice?
Margipoo75 answered:
The pleats are not as tricky as you might think. You'll need to make sure you've enough stitches across to accomodate the folds/pleats you are making. How many stitches do you have on your needles?
