Or maybe I should say "to spite me." Bags can't think, right? Nah.
Okay. It's a nice bag. It's just not the bag I was trying to make. This was supposed to be such a simple project, just doubling the size of the tiny tote I did a couple of weeks ago. First my reading skills failed miserably. I needed TWO not one of some of the large pattern pieces I had cut and there was no more fabric. Improv time! Sadly, my math skills were not up to my improvisation. The bag changed and changed and changed some more.
Now all I have to do is figure out what to do with a rather long, squat bag with lots of pockets. If only I knitted or crocheted. It would be perfect for skeins of yarn.
