    I’m finding the front pocket part of the video really hard to follow and I’m not a novice sewer. Are there written directions somewhere?? The video makes no sense

    When sewing on the side gussets after completing the zipper I believe I see two gussets with rounded edges being sewin on each end of the zipper. However I only have one side gusset pattern and it say to cut one each of lining, fabric and interfacing. Should that be two each or am I missing a piece.

    I can only imagine the amount of time spent.
    I reviewed this, perhaps an embarrassing # of times, to “get it right”.

    Thank you so much for this sew-along video, Mayra! Any time there is video instruction, especially with a more difficult project like this backpack, it is incredibly helpful to the reader/viewer/sewist! This video must have taken a lot of time to film and edit. Much appreciated!

      You are welcome Kimberly, It did take a long time because I am not a video producer so your appreciation means the world to me. Thank you!
