I'm trying to buy this pattern, but nothing happens when I click on the "Add Pattern to Cart". The same, when I click "Save To Wishlist". What gives? I finally managed to select it by going to the designer's page, http://www.craftsy.com/user/670962/pattern-store, and selecting it from there and clicking on the "Add Pattern to Cart" in the pop-up window.
I had a couple of tiny glitches on here this morning too. Someone said Craftsy works best in Google Chrome. I am on Internet Explorer right now, so maybe that is your issue too? I am glad you figured it out. Happy sewing!
Hi Cherie, This is great! Will a checkbook fit? Thanks ~
Oops, realized the measurements are already posted...nvm ;)
I will be putting out another one that is sized for checkbooks - it is what I have been carrying for a while now to test it. It holds a checkbook AND the small sized Kindle e-reader. I have been fussing with what is best for pockets and how to include my reading glasses. The padding I put into that one made it come together different than this small wallet, so it has to be a whole new pattern.
I'm looking forward to that pattern. It would be nice if it would also fit a Nook Simple. A place for glasses is a real plus.
Now, if you look here:http://www.craftsy.com/project/pattern/sewing/accessory/professional-zip-around-wallet/52106You can see that sew Kate took my instructions in the pattern for making it a bit longer, and added 1.5" which made it fit her checkbook. It looks fantastic too.So, yes, you can make it big enough for the checkbook, you will be lengthening a few of the pattern pieces.
Excellent, thank you!
I sew and this pattern in way too confusing.... disappointed :(
I struggled with understanding this pattern as well.
Unless you are the worlds best sewer and have a PROFESSIONAL sewing machine and enjoy pictures then do not download this pattern. 4 days on this... absolutely horrible... gave up
Donna and Wendy, sorry you spent time on it. It is an advanced project. I know sometimes people are looking at things from their phones and not able to read all of the description. I do try to discourage people from getting this one if they are not ready for it. Maybe one of these days, I will do it in video format, but it will not make the doing it any easier. Thank you for adding your comments here, maybe it will save someone else from getting a pattern they are not ready for.
Hi Donna, I am not speaking against this pattern at all. I just need to spend more time with it and email you with questions. I am a very experienced seamstress and love the patterns that I see on your site. I will be back for more patterns soon. Thank you very much for taking the time to get in touch with me privately. I really, really appreciate it.
You are welcome Wendy. That is the beauty of buying directly from the designer. Thanks for the kind words. :) Cherie
hi there, I started sewing it today and yes you sometimes have to read things twice or more often till it gets clear. it is like donna said, you have to sew it and than youll understand what is ment.I am not an advanced sewer (sorry my english isnt the best) and started sewing one year ago but I think Ill get a really great resultat.So please dont give up, the pattern only needs time and yes sometimes you have to rip seams (I did it 4 times in one section till I understand what I had to do ;) ) but it is worth it. sandra
