Something new...

So I picked up a pattern a few weeks ago... It looked pretty cool, and I gave it a try last night/this morning. Man, it was hard. I mean, not hard... but it required a level of accuracy that I don't always bring to patterns. I'm kind of a "oops, let's see how we can make that work now" kind of person. This bag was no different. Firstly, cutting out those handles! Ick! Ick ick ick! Then the side panel didn't match up with the outside, and the bag at the end result is actually about 2-3" shorter than it should be because of "adjustments." :) But it is pretty darn cute. And with my "adjustments" I think it might be doable -- I think I may do away with the full-length handle detail though. Just for my sanity.
