Excellent Great boutique style  July 13, 2013

24 darts are a bit much for a beginner but it gives the bag a great body. It is not very difficult to sew, just a lot of threads to cut off. The final product is a gift for my neighbours birthday. We are going on vacation next week so she can use it there.
