This pattern was one of the first bagmaking patterns I ever tried (and it was too advanced for me at the time!)
Recently I'd had a big sewing project that took a long time and I wanted to make something quick and easy. I also have this super cute dinosaur fabric that I designed and I wanted to use it.
I've been wanting to retry the ditty bag pattern to prove I've improved my skills in bagmaking. So I did some fussy cutting of Dino's and made one dittty bag with stegosauruses (stegosaurai?) and another with triceratopses (triceratopsai?)
I think they turned out super cute! And I felt awesome that I have improved my skill to the point that I flew through the pattern with no issues.
Practice, practice! And try things that bested you before!
