  1. thanks for the vidoe. do u sell the bag? im not able to sew due to back pain. I love the bag.

  2. does anyone want to make this for me? omg I love it. have bad back and can't bend to see. oh well. I'd literally pay someone to make it and send to me not an outrageous price.

  3. omg I bought this pattern today and I was so confused when I cut the pieces out. I am so glad you showed them glued together!! Makes it so much more understandable! Thank you 🙂

  5. Marina, Love this bag!  Pure genius! 
    I must have missed something but I cannot find where to access the pattern.  Do you sell it on your website?  I couldn't find a link to any actual pattern that we can download and print out?

  6. Hello Marina, please do you use any special sewing foot to sew vinyl?
