If they gave frequent flyer miles for sewing by the seat of your pants I'd be on my way around the world. Goodness I thought this would be the easiest thing to make...that's what I get for thinking. Have had this material for many years.. just got it because we liked the pattern but never used it. Decided to make a library book bag instead of toting the books back and forth in my Walmart bag. One thing after another...didn't have enough fabric so I made panels, found a scrap piece of red denim I had but it frayed so had to french seam it..then that didn't work folding over so had to cut piece for the top...well you get the picture. Now it's finished and I love it but would think twice before tackling it again.
