Here she is, all sewn up and ready for cutting!
Here is the pleat template, ready to cut off all the excess. It sure seemed like a lot, and after all that work I was pretty scared to cut it, but the other participants said to just go for it!
All done. Both sides cut.
Here's the big scary pile of all the cut pieces. Now what to make with all of these?!
The straps are ready to baste, thereby reducing any shifting during later sewing.
Straps AND border attached. This is really starting to look like a real bag!
Attached and topstitched! Woo hoo!
This is Raygan's bag. Remember, she doesn't have a blog, so I'll be posting for her. Doesn't this look so fab and springy?
Here we go! Borders are attached.
Borders attached, topstitched, and cut! Can't wait to see this come together!
