Also confused, same reasons, plus the fringe looks thick in the photo, not like yarn, but I can't blow up the photo to see better. I see the other comments are from 2012, so expecting it's not being updated or answered.

Hi there, Since this pattern was submitted by a manufacturer, Caron, you will have to contact them with specific pattern-related questions. Their website can be found by clicking on the word "Caron" below the project title on this page. Thanks!

Yes, I agree. I can't picture how to attach fringe onto front and back side. Please clarify. I really like the purse.

The Finishing instructions are not clear at all. "wind yarn around cardboard...." then do what? cut them/tie them?
