Awesome bag, well done! Good job at lining inside! The strap can be any length, just measure yourself. For a short over shoulder make it 60-70cm, for a cross body wearing make it 120-140cm. Just measure for yourself and you will get the idea. Very cool bag, you did well!
I don't work with wood so can not really comment on it. But the "rub'n'buff" works on many different materials so I guess it might work on wood, too.
I think you need to contact customer service since this is their website and not mine. I am just a user who uploads tutorials and offers free patterns and templates. My job is to upload a working file and I do guarantee that all the files I upload are downloadable and full size printable. I tried to help you as much as I could and since you obviously have no luck with my suggestions you should really contact the website admins. I am pretty sure they can help you. As to your talk about a refund I am confused here as you definitely did not pay me for anything and all my tutorials and patterns are free to use.

Maybe if you could make some screenshots of the process you are going through the problem would be more clear?
I have a feeling you are not doing it right. I guess you are trying to print out the pattern after you clicked the button to download the whole tutorial? You do not need to actually open the tutorial. On this page, the very same page where you are typing your comment scroll up the page until you see "Step 2". In the end of this step you will see a red icon of Adobe Acrobat file. This is a PDF file and it is called "Carmen Patterns.pdf". Click on it. It will not open but will start to download to your computer. Do not open the whole tutorial as a PDF file, stay on this page where you are reading my comment right now. Try and let me know
Hi,The patterns file is in the end of the Step 2. It is a PDF file, you need to click on it and it will start downloading to your computer. I just checked and it is working.The only reason it is not working for you could be if your browser has permissions denied for downloads from this page/site. Try to disable any blocking or try a different browser. If the problem still there try to contact instructables' customer service, maybe they can help you to get this file from their website in some other way. It is perfectly working on my end and since the website is not mine there is not much I can help with. I uploaded the file and it is downloadable thats for sure. I hope you resolve the problem.
You need to click this file (see the photo):
I placed the patterns file in the Step 2 (in the end). Click the file and it should start downloading to your computer. If it does not there might be something wrong with the setting of your browser. Check if you have any add-ons turned on blocking the page. The file is working I just checked. If the problem persist you need to contact instructables support, they should be able to help you.
Thank you!I can not say the exact size, as I mentioned in the previous comment I was making four bags at the same time and tried to use every inch of leather side. Print out the patterns, lay them out on a table and you will see approximate size of leather needed.
You mean you want to buy this bag?
Thank you!All my patterns are done in Photoshop. Tooling patterns are sketched with a pencil on a piece of paper first and then traced in Photoshop.
Thank you!Difficult to say how long it took because I was making four bags simultaneously plus making a tutorial so I can not actually calculate the time for one bag. But I guess it should take approximately three days to make this bag.
Thank you!All the tools could be obtained online or locally in leather supply shops.Here is one of them (select your country):https://www.tandyleather.eu/en/
Thank you very much!
Leather bag "Carmen"View Instructable »
Soooo agreed! How can I enter a 3D contest hoping to win a 3D printer if I don't actually have one to create the entry?? And that goes for everything. Sewing machines should be for prizes in NON-sewing contests, woodworking machinery prizes should be offered in NON-wooden related contests, etc. Give the fair chances to everyone.
They were selling this for $85 and when social media picked this up and started talking about it a lot it was all marked "sold out" for whatever reason LOL
I will be honored to see your creation based on my tutorial, thank you!And Merry Christmas!
Wow, that IS a beautiful color and a wonderful bag! Very well done, I am happy to see my tutorial was useful! Thank you for sharing the photos!!
Oh, yes, absolutely, you can cut the gusset in one piece! Material economy is always in my mind LOLPlus it is always useful to know how to connect and lace two pieces in case you don't have enough leather for one long gusset. Good luck with the project and if there are any more questions please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you! You can use tis technique on just about anything you make. Bracelets, handbags, wallets, belts, etc.
Great tutorial! Thank you!You might want to change your compuer password now...
Thank you very much, it is very kind of you!
The leather is usually slippery while new and polished, but in this case it does not really make any discomfort because the patches (leather pieces) are small and the whole surface is covered with seams in all directions which prevents sliding. Also, very soon the leather will break in and the polished layer on the surface will wear out. Leather will be soft and good.
I don't think you need to vent it, the rug will be flat on the floor and there is no fur on leather so there is no places for moisture to stuck. You would only need to condition it maybe once a year and it will last for years. Apart of that no special care required. As to the slippery thing, if you feel you will be uncomfortable maybe make those patches smaller. It will cause more work for you (plenty of stitching) but will not let your feet to slide as the seams will prevent it.
This one would be great for a prize: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Synology-DS416-Bay-Desktop-Enclosure/dp/B016BTZGM0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480158860&sr=8-2&keywords=DiskStation%2BDS416play&th=1
Thank you very much!! That makes me feel better :-)Thanks!
Thank you very much for clarifying this for me, I appreciate it!
Thank you Mehlani! I am glad you found my tutorial useful!
So cool!! Can't believe there is no comments here! I love doll houses and always wanted to be able to make my own lighting inside the house. Thank you!
"Make it antique" contest.There will be some awesome instructables I am sure. But the prizes must be very much worth it because not everyone is ready to share theiy antiquing processes LOL
The Network Attached Storage (NAS) at least 12TB would be an awesome Grand Prize. Smaller capacity would be great for first, second, etc prizes.Also, good photo lenses would be greatly appreciated I am sure about it. Good DSLR photo cameras will always be valued by almost anyone I think. Not just point-and-shoot cameras but professional ones or at least semi-pro. And not only for Photo Contests.Leather working tools and machines (splitters, clickers, embossers, leather sewing machines) would be absolutely awesome prizes, there are good companies who make these. There is a lot of woodworking tools and machines for prizes but there is hardly any equipment for leather workers except those rare leathercraft contests.All these would be so much appreciated and not just by me I am sure.Thank you!
I am so going to make them! Thank you very much!! Voted!
Wooow!! That is one... thing! I can not even start to understand how you did it but I am impressed and I voted for you!
This is one awesome tree house! You have my vote!Do you have peacocks in your backyard??
Thank you!! :-)

Thank you very much, I appreciate your support!
Thank you so mcuh!!
Hi, I use sheep wool offcuts, I bought them on ebay some time ago. If you keep an eye for them you will catch them. Tandy sells them, too but much more expensive.
Oh and I forgot to say that yes it can be reused. I have one piece for each color I use the most. After the job is done I don't even wash it. It dries out and is stored in a dedicated tray (where all my coloring stuff it). When I need it again I just dip it into water and here you go, ready for coloring again! Hope this helps.
