Project

Departure satchel

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Good pattern, all steps are well described. Love how the inside pockets come together and are attached to the bag: no saggy lining, no need for binding, minimal sewing by hand. I wanted to have a bag that would 'stand' even when empty, so I used Stiff Stuff interfacing. This is not what the pattern calls for and it was indeed incredibly difficult to sew through the many layers.
