So, despite reading many posts, tutorials, etc. on here and elsewhere, I still cannot figure out how to attach the top piece (outer) to the bottom piece (outer).  I'm sure as soon as someone explains it to me I will see how simple it is but for whatever reason, I'm just not getting it on my own.  If you can't understand what I'm asking I can post pics.  So, you have your bottom outer piece facing right side up.  You place your top outer piece right side down on top of the bottom piece.  Here is where I don't get it.  Is that top piece supposed to look like a happy face or a sad face right now?  When I followed the instructions the way I interpret them, it doesn't seem like all of my pieces are matching up.  I'd really appreciate if someone could explain it to me.   Embarrassed

It's more like a sad face (top) over a happy face (bottom) that you force together when you pin it up then sew it.

Ok, I guess I was doing it right.  It was just kinda hard to pin that way so I didn't think I was doing it right.  Thanks!

Again, thank you so much!  That "force together" part made all the difference!  I sewed it together and it looks just like it's supposed to!  Hopefully I can finish the bag tonight!  Thanks!

Har-har, yes, sewing does require a bit of force now and then - the way things come together seems to defy physics until you turn it right side out!

You got that right!  I tend to be a person who has to "see" it in my head and I just wasn't "seeing" it.  I finished one buttercup and am working on a second.  I'll post pics when I get them both done!
