ARGH!  I've looked at so many things lately I can't keep track.  I'm making a bag with a rounded bottom and I know I've seen a pattern with two darts on each corner of the bottom.  I just need it for reference, but I'd really like to see the location of the darts.  I'm about to just start chopping on some muslin until I get the look I want.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Lisa Lam of U-Handbag has a tutorial on a round bottom bag with darts.   Go to her blog: http://u-handbag.typepad.com/  and look down the right hand side for tutorials.

The only pattern that I have that has a round bottom is a Mail Pouch.  The dart is located at the middle of the curve and is 3/4" wide and 2 3/4" long.  Hope this helps.

Perfect thank you.  I pretty much figured it out on my own, but the validation that I'm doing it "right" is nice.  There are some other nice tute on there too, bonus!

Thank you too!  The middle of the curve thing is what I wasn't sure of.  I tried two darts one at the end of each curve, but that just made it angular instead of curved.  So one dart works good and I'm not going to worry about it.
