Then sew each of the darts closed, pulling very tightly and then pin the two pieces together to ensure the patterns match on both sides.
I did intend to begin sewing the pieces together last night but Miss Millie had other plans. Since I was away over-night she was VERY demanding of my attention. The little paw kept creeping over and scratching at the purse. Then when that didn't work, she proceeded to try and push it out of my hands with her nose.
Awwww, how could I resist? So I put my work away and gave the princess the attention she was so needy for.
On my lunch hour today I bought the fabric for the lining and some wool yarn for the whipping at the top edge. Tonights plan is to finish sewing the sides and maybe whip the top.
