PurpleHeather, it is
wonky. Even if no one else could tell, I would always know it's wonky. Thanks, though.
Shsh, thank you so much! That third link is actually where I got the basic shape for the bag. Even though I didn't know how to get mine to look as good as that. And it was sort of on short notice that I had to make this bag, so I didn't have time to send off for her pattern. I might do that now, though, since this stupid thing is vexing me so much. BUT the second link is a great resource - I think that might be just what I was looking for! After I'm done with the three projects I'm doing now (two of which have to be done by tomorrow, yikes!) I'm going to start another purse using that method for just the face. Thanks again!
