How easy is it? I'm not a very accomplished Sewer by any stretch of the word. It's just i want to use fabric from my wedding dress to make a bag and wondered.

Basically, it's a square or rectangle w/the bottom corners cut out then sewn shut (you do the same thing for the lining). The tutorial here is pretty good. If you wanted to, you could even leave the corners on & after you sew the bottom, you'd pinch the corners diagonally, sew across then cut it off. Some larger companies don't cut the corners off (LL Bean), they just tack the corner as part of their design. Do a search here or outside of Craftster to get an idea of how to do both. I started (before knowing about Craftster & the Jordy) w/leaving the corners then sewing & cutting. It's really not that hard. Once you know that technique, you can apply it to coin purses & pouches.

Very easy! It was one of my first sewing projects to be honest. I taught myself to sew because I wanted to make a bag so that is the one I chose. It really doesn't get much easier than her pattern. Give it a try, you may just surprise yourself! Smiley
