This is another project from the "Sewing Green" book. It is suppose to be a simple, simple project. It was anything but. It is made out of four placemats, two for the sides, half of one for the bottom and two 1/3 pieces for the sides.
This project turned into a disaster for me. The problem was that the placemats I had were way to thick to sew with any kind of ease, especially the bottom corners. The reason I chose them, besides I loved the color, was because they were heavier and therefore would make a more sturdy bag. During the course of sewing it I broke three, count them three, needles. I can go months without breaking a needle and in one night broke three.
Now that it is done I am going to make sure we use that bag until it wears out.
