I spent some lovely hours recreating these! I took my time and I have a few ideas to help me the next time: Make the pockets a smidge longer so I can be sure to get them sewn IN. Also, when I sew the middle seam to create two sides, I will always start from the bottom edge and sew UP. I messed up on the Oriental fabric one, the ONLY one that had a one way design... figures! So, it opens backwards! The woman I will give it to, is very sweet , and will overlook my mistakes! These were so much fun to make, and I will do several more, to keep aside for gifts for folks who need some TLC ... and a cup of tea!
I am too new to post the pics, so i hope this link works!http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=515825&cat=500&ppuser=262076
