Now -- Isn't that the truth!
Anri finished the bag on Sunday and gave it to her Mother for Mothers Day. Sweet girl she is!
It turned out really well - it is just the two fabrics - the lining is the pink fabric as well. There were some technical issues that we discovered with the pattern. The binding really should have been bias binding, it would have been much easier to sew on. Also - it seems that some of the pattern pieces had seam allowances and some did not! I guess if we could have read the Japanese instructions we would have known that. Anri changed the actual design on the bag a bit. Cute bag -- I might have to make one myself (now that I know how)!
