I made good progress yesterday. I backstitched the bottom of the bag/top of the box and interfaced it. Since I didn't follow directions, I was not sure if lacing this piece to my machine stitching would work. But it did!
When this is laced together I can join it to the bag. Happy day! Somebody mentioned that they had a hard time envisioning how this goes together. I hear you. I was puzzled by this also. After reading the directions, I think that the large panel will be joined on one side to this panel and not directly to the bag. Hopefully, I'll be able to show you that tomorrow.
It is a sunny Sunday. Our snow is almost all gone and I could walk outside today.
