In the Nick of Time

I just managed to stitch the Mushroom bag. A very good thing since my brother flies out tomorrow morning.



The short drawstrings are as per his request. The inside is a barely patterned black. It actually doesn't close since the batting makes it too fat at the top.

A perfect indication about the eye of the beholder: When I gave it to him I gave him a heads up that the top was very wonky and that the opening was a bit of a tight fit and that the top was wonky. He couldn't care less and was too thrilled by fact that it held his DS and was custom made for him.

What a great idea! I know as a perfectionist stitcher, I always worry about little mistakes, but no one ever notices them.

Those are sooo cute!
I need something just like it to carry my new bluetooth for my car around... *wanders off to see if she can figure out a good way to build drawstrings into cases*
