    Yesterday while my internet was down I put together a couple of rag quilt purses. I had to totally fudge the corners and today couldn't find a video that shows how to put it together. I think it will be ok but if there's an easier way of doing it I would love to see it. I'm sewing the 6 squares for the front (three across and two rows) to the 7 for the bottom and sides and then doing the same for the 6 back squares. It's when I bring the sides up to sew that one corner really gets me. Any suggestions would be great. I want to make some more out of a charm pack I have. The first two are flannel and really thick in the seams.

    Make a flap ... or add a 'design element' to finish it off?

    Hard to tell without a picture.

    Hmmm. I think I would sew the front, back, and sides together, then insert the bottom. oopsies less likely to attract attention there? my take. :) Sounds like fun.
