From my new bag book, Umami Midori, a cute little book full of cool simple designs. Boxy shape bag on page 16, really catch me and no wonder be my first pattern to try. I use thick white canvas for my mock-up test. Why I need a mock-up? When I try new pattern, with my limited experience, my heart go much faster than my hand. I want to get it done fast to see the result. For this time I have made lots of mistakes, cutting the top fabric pieces shorten by 6 cm. so I have to add two funny extra pieces. I did not do well on the corner only get it right 1 out of 8. I start to pick up how to do it and will practice more.
I really like it’s shape and proportion. Can’t wait to try on the next pattern.
