I am trying to make the Marrakesh bag in Stephanie Kimura’s “Bags of Style” book but have come to a grinding halt because I can’t understand the instructions. I
have read and re-read them but I still can’t work them out. Is there something I am missing?
The ‘Prepare’ section says to cut FOUR batting pieces of #THIRTEEN 2 but only a total of TWO silk pieces (one brown, one green) of #THIRTEEN 2. Then when I go to the ‘Assemble’ section, Item 3 says to sew the green silk dupioni body pieces (by which I assume it means the lining pieces of Piece 1) to the strips, but the only strips that have been cut are already stitched to the tapestry pieces. Am I supposed to cut extra two green silk dupioni strips for these?
Further, in Item 4 it says to place the two tapestry/silk pieces RST and sew the TOP seam. Is that meant to be the SIDE seam?
I don’t want to proceed unless I am sure that I am doing the right thing. The fabric I’m using is too special to make mistakes with.
Any help anyone can give me would be much appreciated.
