Went to this pattern and the pieces are printed from several jpg files and do not measure up to what they are supposed to. Even the crosshatch 1″ is not the same in both directions. Can this be fixed. Would be a great pattern. Even better in rip stop nylon, would be thinner to fold up and carry.

Hello! I’d love to make several bags like this but not right now. How can I save the tutorial and pattern?
