Hi Karen, We are sorry but unfortunately we don't have pdf instruction for this block. We are trying to vary our instructions between video tutorials and pdf instructions since all makers have different preferences. I am so happy you love the block.

So happy you like it! The dimensions are about 9" long x 6 1/2" wide. It is about 2 1/2 depth! I hope this helps! The bottom of the bag looks just like the top part of the bag just without the zipper. I hope this helps! Thanks again!

Hi Barbara, I am happy you like the tutorial! It was a really fun make! I used faux leather string. This project is great because you can just use whatever scrap fabrics and string you have laying around from previous projects! https://www.etsy.com/listing/207949171/suede-string-faux-leather-strip-leather?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_e-craft_supplies_and_tools-jewelry_and_beading_supplies-findings_and_hardware&utm_custom1=ff07fa6e-8306-41c1-ab77-9b4867023c7b&gclid=CLD2jr7KlNECFUsGhgodgDQF3Q

Hi Lauren! You will need about 7/8 yards of fabric for your backing. The finished tablerunner is 12" x 48" so you will cut two rectangles from your 7/8 yard of fabric and stitch them together to get a piece long enough for your backing. Also you are correct you will need four of 1 1/2" x 4 1/2 strips! Hope you have fun sewing this project up. This is such a fun block to make!
