I don't do well with 3-dimensional projects. But somehow, I occasionally convince myself that this time, it will be different. It never is.
But I was feeling confident after my project bags. And my friend Snow did a bag with a Clover & Violet pattern, and their whole thing is that they design bags for quilters. And they had a free downloadable pattern for their Pepper Tote that they claimed was a good place to start.
So I bought a solid, went through my stash for everything else, and got started. That was in March. I finished last Friday.
I found the pattern to be okay as a beginner, non-bag maker pattern. There were some parts that were not as clear as I would have liked, and the end was not clear at all. (There are 2 finishing options, but not all the steps are included in each of the options, so there is more detective work and guessing than I felt there should have been.) I also did something not quite right with the zipper, as my lining is showing.
This was a Q3 goal for the finish along with Adrianne. My original goal list is here.
