The instructions are written on the design in the seam allowances- here's another copy.
(Red star) Step one- Straps- fold both long sides in 1/2 inch, iron, fold in half, iron, top stitch around, with right sides together, (Blue star) sew to top of bag with strap loops aiming toward bottom of bag. Repeat with second strap. Pin straps down so they won't get caught in seams.
(Green star) Step two- Sides- Fold right sides together, tops matching, sew matching lettered side seams. Repeat with other three side seams. Leave marked seam in lining partly open for turning later.
(Purple Star) Step three- Bottom- Fold along marked triangle so seam is centered on top, and raw edges meet in a straight line. Stitch across raw edges. Repeat with other 3 bottoms.
(Gold star) Step four- Assembling- Put lining inside bag, right sides together Sew across top, being sure to catch straps. Turn right side out through opening. Hand stitch opening shut. Reinforce straps with more stitching if you wish.
I wish to thank Sef for generously sharing the bag pattern they'd created and also to thank Dejachic for sharing a photo tutorial on how to sew their very similar pattern.
