She has a nice how-to video on YouTube - so I watched it -at least twice! Then I started making the bag. Of course I decided to use the serger so my finished seams would be nice. I ran over that plastic zipper and broke a needle. #%#@....okay needle replaced and all the bits of the broken needle found and discarded. (This is where I lost my concentration) So I went again. WHAM! Yes the other needle in the serger broke this time. Okay, so now there are two new needles in the serger. And onward I go. I slowed down and went over the zipper oh so carefully. Whew, made it.
This is the point where I realize that I sewed the sides before I folded it to make the box. I now have a big zipper pouch. ARRRRRGGGH!
I box the corners anyway and make it work. Well kinda. I have a tall skinny boxy bag.
So take two. I pull up the directions and go one step at a time. It works.
I was also part of a warp exchange on Ravelry. The warp is the collection of threads that you weave on to create cloth on a loom. When you weave the quilting explanations of lengthwise and crosswise fabric are sooooo much more clear.
Here is the warp I received on my loom.
