My bag won't close! I've threaded it with ribbon according to the directions, but because of the thickness of the fabric (quilt store fabric, so it isn't thin/broadclothy stuff) it won't draw up any more! Their bag draws up just fine - I'm thinking they used thinner fabric, but I wonder if that's enough to explain the different results? Am I just a bad sewer? LOL!! I hope some of my spicy friends will try the bag too, and post their results - it's such a sweet bag, I'd really like to conquer this pattern!
A few hours later - well!! Spicy Karen tried the pattern and ended up with the same results I did, so I know it isn't just me :D I'll post at the Cotton Spice site and see what they say - if it's both Karen and I, there might be others out there too, that got the same results! Perhaps they'll have some hints and suggestions for us :)
