A very pretty bag design. I hit the little green "pattern" and was able to download the whole thing, butterflies included, their diagrams were easily understood, happily no problems, thank you!!

The butterflies are cute, but the directions are absolutely terrible and small and confusing. Why did they make this so difficult to make ? ?
