Just in Time to Spoil My Day...Bohemian Bag DRAMA

Hello Fellow Blogworld friends,

I have just had an extremely upsetting realization that the new printing of my Bohemian Bag pattern has a very unfortunate problem. It seems that when I was pasting the template into the instruction document, I didn't have it at the right resolution, so therefore it is really, REALLY SMALL! HOW I didn't catch it then I will never know. But now that many of these patterns have been sent out into the world, and some folks have already found that indeed there is a problem, I suppose it is just too late to make everything right entirely.

HOWEVER...I am in the immediate process of reprinting the template, and will have it up here on my blog as soon as I can to download. In the meantime, if you have purchased one of the Bohemian Bag patterns in the last 3 months, please email me:, and I will send you the new template page as soon as I have it.

In are the dimensions for you right now, so you can have them to create your own template for this bag, if you like.

It is shaped like a triangle, with both long sides the same length, and the top is cut off.
Here is a picture: Click on it to see it bigger.The way I do it is I make a rectangle 4 1/2" x 13" on heavy paper or template plastic. Then I subtract 1" from each corner at the top edge and connect those points to the bottom corners. Now it is 2 1/2" wide at the top, and 4 1/2" wide at the bottom. That's it. Then cut it out and trace around it on your fabric to cut your pieces.

I am so sorry about this, I really am. It's just about the worst thing that can happen to a pattern designer. Just mortifying.

My sincere apologies to everyone affected! Just email me...we can talk.

Deep breaths and count to 10 - As Robert Orben Quoted "To err is human - and to blame it on a computer is even more so"
I'm sure 99.9% of people will be very understanding!
