So I tried my hand at my first solo sewing job. I think it's fair to say, this is going to take more patience and practice than I'd first anticipated!
I'm afraid I tend to err on the side of laziness for this type of project. I started it committed to measuring it all out and carefully cutting the fabric. Then I couldn't find a ruler. Or a pencil to mark along the fabric.
Note to self: "that looks about right" will NEVER be straight.
