It's done, my new pleated bag. I guess the third time wasn't the charm, but the fourth one sure is! Okay, so there may be a 5th version to correct a few issues, but overall I'm very pleased.
This one is mine, all mine. I already have it packed with 'Beki stuff' and have been proudly wearing on my shoulder.
Now comes the fun part where I play in my sewing studio to pick out fabrics to make a few more of these babies. Yes, I'm almost giddy!!
