Sometimes it’s nice to have a video tutorial to follow when you’re making a project, especially if you’re new to sewing bags. After all, that’s why our sister site, Make Bags With Brenda, exists.
But not all patterns come with videos, and that shouldn’t stop you from attempting them. For projects made using ABQ patterns that don’t have videos, you can still do a great job just by following the pattern itself.
Recently, I heard from Barb McKillop from British Columbia. She emailed to ask if there was a tutorial for The Woolly, Woolly Bag, for which she had been asked to make a sample for Kismet Quilts in Port Alberni, Vancouver Island.
These pattern instructions are thorough

If you follow a pattern I’ve written, you’ll have everything you need in the way of instruction. That’s what I replied to Barb. Just follow the pattern, don’t read ahead, do it step by step, and she’d not have any trouble. That’s what she did, and now Barb has been asked to teach a class to make the Woolly, Woolly Bag!

Just follow the pattern
Don’t be afraid to use patterns that don’t have videos. As long as you have basic sewing skills, you can get amazing results simply by following a bag or quilt pattern.
Like Barb, those that try are usually surprised at just how easy it is.
