Do you autopsy projects that didn't turn out quite right? I've been wanting to try the Fully Open Bucket Pouch since I started playing with zippers. The directions over at Ikat Bag call for a rounded bottom so I took my measurements from another site and followed Lier's directions for the zipper.
I was confused. Very confused. It probably didn't help that my recycled zipper has metal teeth.
My bag opens wide, which is good. But I should have added some batting or interfacing to give it more body.
It'll work for my socks-in-progress, but I wish I'd made it larger. I was too distracted by zipper logistics to remember how much length boxing the corners eats up.
Next step -- a lined bag that opens wide, has batting to give it some structure, and doesn't have boxed corners! Or maybe has less boxed corners. I'm not sure yet.
