    I could not open any of the attachments. They all say invalid attachments.

    When I was putting it together, it was going along great - pics were coming up just fine. Then it came up with too many pictures so I started and new post, part 2. I got along ok on part two then all of a sudden it magically merged part one with part two. Then none of the pictures worked. I spend an hour and a half just loading pics and typing - Something isn't right and it isn't my pictures. I have posted the SAME pictures in other places and they work fine.

    This mando bag has a different shape at the bottom but is a nice bag - the patch bag I did has square corners and comes out a lot wider at the bottom.

    For some reason, when I try to open your attachments, it says the attachment is invalid.

    Miriam,
    I can't believe that you spent soooo much time, only to have the QB mess up on your photos. Thank you so much for your efforts; I really do appreciate the time and effort involved and the frustration level that you had to have had. I think that I might have blown a fuse if I had been in your shoes. In order to "get it", I took your photos...the ones that came through unscathed, and your narrative, piece by piece and pasted them into a word document. Having the first and last photos on the same page allowed me to get a better idea of what you had done. A couple things still confused me and then after re-reading it all again, your words finally struck me when you said to sew it like a child's block. I still haven't figured out the last step in the lining unless you top stitch it closed but then it wouldn't hurt to top stitch all around the upper edge, I guess. It may be a while until I get around to giving it a try but I will do it soon as I get my Christmas stuff done. Again, THANK YOU!!!

    Yes, I stitched the last lining seam from the top - I just folded the raw edges in and then sewed on top - you could sew that by hand if you prefer - it would be nicer but I'm lazy... It took about 3 hours to put together. Top stitching all the way around would be a good idea and maybe some kind of iron on stiffener would be good in there - might give it a bit of shape - I used some drapery weight material for mine - it was some stuff I had around. I'm glad you were able to print it out. I left out some words because there were pictures and that should be worth a thousand words... LOL
