betsyf asked:
what is the size it should be finished?
Deena answered:
it measures~ 13 " w x ~ 13 " L and ~ 2 " deep (from making the square corners) -
quiltbug asked:
Verrrry, very cute! At first I thought the shape was like a bucket but then saw the picture of the tote when it was "flattened." Some of the directions are a tiny bit confusing such as putting a square in the corner (not sure I remember exactly how it was worded). I'm not sure what you are doing with that square of fabric (which you mention again later). Thanks for sharing -- real cute & real inspirational!
Deena answered:
yea- well - I am not the best on doing patterns/tutorials - I was merely giving a quick synopsis..the square corners - are once the sides are sewn - fold the ends (seams together- on top of each other0 and sew across - about 1 " - then it makes the squared corner once it it turned right side out. I hope this helps
