Garter stitch bag update

I’m finished with the main part of the knitting and all the ends are woven in that can be woven in.

I numbered each square so I didn’t get confused as to what I was doing.  I kept the little squiggle of the lime green.

I also did swatch and felted it.  You can see the difference in the texture but it didn’t shrink too much.  It’s the one that doesn’t have a number pinned to it.

I’m having a terrible time getting the colors to show up right on here. 

The next step is to trace around the entire bag on a sheet of tissue paper so I have a template for the lining.

The the sides are sewn together: A to A, B to B, C to C, and D to D.

It becomes three-dimensional at that point and gets a little complicated after that since I don’t have those edges sewn together.

I WILL have those edges sewn together before class on Wednesday and then can start on the attached I-cord around the top.

Work is going to be a little (who am I kidding?) a lot hectic the next couple of days.  We have a conference on Tuesday and half of Wednesday so I will be busy.  I may will be working late on Monday so any sewing has to get done tonight.
