I'm stuck on a sewing pattern I'm translating and I need your help. The pattern has few words and a good amount of diagrams, and I usually like that. If I was sewing this myself, I'd just fuss with it and figure it out, but since I'm translating this for a person I don't even know myself, I want to stay as close to the instructions as possible.
I've gotten as far as the second picture, but the instructions below it have me stumped. "Stitch side seams." Does this mean to hem them, or are we actually sewing the lining and the bag together? And what about the next paragraph (underneath the following picture)? How is the tunnel the straps go through actually made?
So confused. Head starting to hurt. Help me!
