So, after some practice with scraps, I sat down last night with Gnat (BarknKnit) to sew up a box bag for my Mom's birthday. She was very patient as I had a lot of doubt that I could make it work.
Surprisingly, it turned out good! Here is a picture. The color is bad because I took it on my cell phone. It is bright green, pink and blue flowers with a pink interior.
I think more will be on the way, as I really enjoyed making it!!!
