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

This is a sew along and the written instructions are available for free on the site. I thank you for your feedback, The video took more than 2 weeks to make so I am at a loss what part makes no sense to you? This is an applied pocket an advanced intermediate technique not for everyone.

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.

YES MOST APPRECIATED !!!
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!
