I'm not happy with either of these, lol

Forgot to put the ribbon (cherry) on top ... the cupcake came out smaller than the icing so the icing doesn't cover the top edge nicely ... plus the turned under area (where I turned the cupcake right sides out) wouldn't press nicely, so the topstitching is a bit wonky.  Just an overall not-so-great project, BAH! :D

The sewalong tote didn't fare much better.  I kept having brain fart after brain fart during construction.   The biggest problem is that the lining doesn't fit inside nicely - it's poochy and baggy.  I could make a purse bottom that would hide the pooch, but I still don't like the fact that it's so baggy.  I can barely stand to look at it because I know all the places I screwed up.   Yep, I've decided - I'm redoing the whole bag - this is bugging me too much, lol.  Good thing I have extra fabric! ;)

Edited for clarification:  I didn't follow the sewalong author's directions - I used her design idea but did the tote my own way - the screw-ups were - unfortunately - all mine!!
