I don't follow directions very well!

Not even if they are my own! I was making Jordyn a soccer book purse which my tutorial was here. I was so worried about making the bottom flat (because it was a bigger book), that I forgot all about cutting the fabric wider at the top to open. I had it all sewn before I realized what I had done, so I just went with Plan B. It's now a soccer, colored pencil and marker book.




Now you know, I use the pool table to take my pictures.



It actually turned out to be the perfect size!

I'm not going to admit I screwed up to begin with, so don't tell anyone.
It's our secret!

Terri, what a cute idea......things usually turn out great in the end. I'm actually loving the marker bag. We can use one of those over here.

I don't follow directions well, either :) When I screw up, I make things up along the way and just like your project, I get to invent one. Really appreciate you sharing this great post with us at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop.
