I Am Back!
Okay...so for more progress....
I have paired up my fabric pieces. You will have one lined piece with an unlined piece. With right sides together, I sewed up the sides and the bottom. Then, where I cut out my 3 inch notches, I lined up my seams and sewed across. This makes the bottom of the bag.
And TA DA! Here I am with 2 pieces now! More to come in a bit!
