Yes! well, Im usually pretty good with tuts, but I was having the hardest time with this for some reason. It doesnt include what to do with the two long skinny pieces of fabric or the zipper, but Im assuming you attach the two pieces to the sides of the zipper and attach to the baggie after you make the rest. I dont understand how youre folding the little piece of the bottom of the cassette part, it looks like you could be folding it over and downward or sideways? And after you do that to both parts, since theres two pieces of the other fabric do you attach the cassette part to the bottom piece separately on each side and then attach them together? It seems so silly but Im just not getting it Tongue
