When referring to the MATERIALS LIST, please take into consideration that both the ultra firm & medium weight interfacings should be FUSIBLE.
On the Cutting Instructions, it should say the following:
Cut 1 strip 1½"x 12" (belt loops)
(instead of cutting four (4) 1½"x 3" rectangles; you will see that Step 4 only requires one strip that will be cut into four lenghts once sewn)
Medium Weight Interfacing
Cut 2 rectangles 30"x 3½" (handles)
On page 1, says:
Step 1. Make the Handles
Press the remaining 1/2" of fabric along top and bottom of the interfacing, towards the middle of the handle.
Instead, it should say:
Press the remaining 1/2" of fabric along top and bottom (1/4" on each side -top & bottom) of the interfacing, towards the middle of the handle.
On page 2, it should say:
Step 2. Zipper Pocket
Make the markings for the zipper placement on the wrong side (side without fusible adhesive) of the zipper interfacing (2" x 10"), fuse to the wrong side of the zipper facing piece.
With right sides together, lay the facing rectangle on the bag lining piece 5 ½" from the top edge. (Diagram 2.1)
On page 3, it should say:
Working from the back of the lining, center the 10” length of the pocket lining (10" x 10") to the top of the pocket facing…..
On page 5, it should say the following:
Step 5. Apply Magnet Clasps
Cut two 1 ½" x 2" rectangles from medium weight interfacing.
On the wrong side of one lining piece, mark the center by measuring 7 ¾" in from one side.
Measure down 1 ½" from the top of the lining piece along the center mark and place a mark.
Center one of the 1 ½" x 2" interfacing rectangles over this mark and fuse in place (be sure you fuse to the wrong side of the lining piece).
Re-mark your center over the interfacing rectangle.
Center one of the backing washers from the magnetic clasp kit over your center mark and trace inside each rectangular hole. Remove the washer and carefully make two slits in those marks using a seam ripper or scissors tips.
Place the arms of one magnetic clasp through the slits from the right side of the lining piece.
Put the washer over the arms from the interfacing side, sandwiching the interfacing and lining between the metal pieces.
Press firmly folding each arm of the clasp out and down in opposite directions around the washer. Make the arms as flat as possible.
Repeat for other lining piece taking care that lining top edges meet.
CORRECTIONS FOR OUR VERONA BAG
The correct amount for the PELLON PELTEX #71F Fusible Interfacing is 3/4 yd. Because this interfacing is 20" wide, there will be a shortage of 1/4" on each side of the lower corners of the "Pattern Piece 3"; that shortage could get lost in the seam allowance.
There was a mistake on the Pattern Piece#1 (Exterior Bag Top). The RIGHT "handle placement" should be moved so that the distance from the center is 3½". To see a detailed image of the template, click here.
