The bag is not yet done but I'll be going to sleep very soon anyways. I have a zippered pocket left to insert into the bag, which is something that requires only two seams. After that I have to make a shoulder padding thing and get the straps all together. The bag looks very, very good. It's quite sturdy and attractive and I don't think it's too big.
It's been hard to work on this bag because I've fused a stiff buckram to a lot of pieces, making them very stiff and not at all pliable. Add in all this padding and, well, you've got a difficult thing to sew. I'll be glad to be finished. I hope its owner will be at least as pleased with it as I am.
But for now, sleep.
