but at least I can sew a (mostly) straight seam!
Please note the FULL SIZE items in this bag. I did NOT take note of them. Even when I was cutting the material, I wasn’t really paying attention to dimensions. I had my head to full of figuring out what material should be where since I decided to make the bag with three different materials instead of two. I would like to point out that Gina Allen even included the finished dimensions (7”x13”x6”) AT THE TOP of the instructions I printed out.
It wasn’t until I had already started sewing the bag together that a light bulb went off in my head and I said “wow, this is going to be a big bag.”
I love the way my bag turned out. Love the colors and the instructions were pretty easy to follow. I do think I will cover a piece of bass wood with matching fabric to reinforce the bottom.

Moral of the story…I need to make sure my head isn’t in the clouds when I decide to make something!
