First bag turned out successful!
Took 1 hour to cut fabric and fuse the fleece interface and 2 hours to sew! It would have probably been quicker had I had a better handle for what the tutorial was saying...
Here are a few snapshots of the some of the various steps.
Pieces cut // Marking Pleat Location // Clipped and Pinned pleats
Sewed Band pieces to bag part 1 // Band pieces attached to bag part 2 // band pieces to lining
Inside of bag // Making boxed corners // Finishing up: Outer bag inside liner prior to sewing it together and turning it all right side out
Finished Product! Ready to take it to work in the morning!
Made a snow angel today!
