Practically finished

The bag is so close to being done that part of me just wants to finish it tonight. I know better than to do that, though - if I did, I would just make mistakes and have to do everything twice. I'm already quite tired and I don't think staying up would help. It's not like I could ship it at 3am if I finished then, is it? :) So I may as well get a good night's sleep, get up early, and ship it in the late morning/early afternoon.

The bag isn't quite perfect yet, which is part of the reason it isn't done (the other part is the hand-finishing that's yet to be done). I'm going to take out some extra padding in the laptop section of the bag because it isn't needed. I also need to make the shoulder strap and attach the parachute clip parts to the webbing left out for this purpose.

I'm really, really, really pleased with this bag. It is at least as good a quality as the first one I did - the stitching is good, the colours are pleasing, everything is fitting together, and it looks like something you could buy in a store. Well, I think it does, anyways :) I hope that the recipient is as pleased with it as I am. I will put up pictures somewhere tomorrow.
