Really I should have anticipated this and reduced the size of the hand hole and moved it up a little bit when I printed off the paper pattern in the scaled up size :-) For comparision - here they are side by side (and next to my sewing machine to give a sense of scale!)
Unfortnately I am not as determined as Goldilocks and this "too big" bag will just have to do for the moment... at least all the pegs fit into it.
Pattern available from lapp-elisa.com

The first bag is made with the bias binding around the base as per the instructions. I also used Fast-2-Fuse double sided stiff fusible interfacing for the base (as suggested by inspiration blog posts!). I used fusible volume fleece for the main body of the bag.
The second bag is made with Fase 2 Fuse for the base, the main bag/sides are interfaced with heavyweight interfacing AND fusible volume fleece. I sewed the base on right sides together and then turned the bag out. I prefer this finish.
You can see my seam finishes - but it is a peg bag so I am not fussed. The pattern has all seams enclosed or covered...
