Tried something new, but it wasn't exactly successful, lol

 This was my first attempt at a boxy bag where the top box was a different width than the bottom one.  Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat, you ask?  LOL this was the tutorial I meant to follow, but after I studied her instructions, I went ahead and tried things on my own without referring back to them.  Consequently, my scale is way off (so is my bathroom scale - it LIES!).  You can't tell from the photo but my sizing just didn't work.  As well, I should have put a tab on both sides of the top boxes like she did - if I had checked her page before sewing, I would have caught that :)  The bag certainly isn't horrid or unusable as I made it, but it's not quite what I wanted, so I'll be trying again :) 

Sorry about the yellowish background on this picture - both were taken at the same time in the basement, but ... ???!!!!

Linking this project up to Celtic Thistle Stitches' "New to Me in 2014" May linky party :) 


  1. Well, it may not be quite what you were aiming for, but it's still quite a nice bag!

  2. I can feel your pain… It really bothers me when things don't turn out just perfect like I imagined they would :) I made this travel case last week and the zipper ends didn't come out nice. I would have begrudgingly used the case, but I wouldn't have been happy. Lucky for me, my sis-in-law doesn't mind the "rejects".

  3. It still looks very pretty. I'll have to have a go at one of these when I have the time.

  4. It mightn't be how you wanted, but it looks great. I understand what you're saying though. It's frustrating when you imagine one thing and something different emerges.

  5. I can't see what's wrong with it, it looks good to me!
