And this is the bag reversed.
It is not too big or too small. Just like my friend had specified.
It has 4 pleats and is 12 inches in height and the bottom width is 10 inches. I used fusible iron on interfacing on the green side (my favourite side) and sewed in polyester batting on the orange side of the bag.
When we make it next time I will take pictures of the steps that I followed. I did not have enough time between starting on this project and the scheduled bag making date. Hence there are no WIP pictures. No, I still haven't made this one with her yet. Our scheduled date has been getting postponed for various reasons. But I'm sure we'll make it soon.
My friend hasn't seen this yet. I'm hoping she likes it.
