There are a couple of things to add. I topstitched around the top of the bag to give it some structure. My thinking was that it would to into the channel of the frame more easily. It does.
...zoom in on the photo on the left
and notice the glue on the frame. You can
remove this easily with nail polish remover and
a Q-Tip. And from your hands as wel.
Finally, thank you all for following along both on the blog here and over at the Carried Away Bag Team thread. I will leave it up until someone decides it needs to go. Thanks especially to Andy, Sherry, Sandra, IslandGirl, SoCalGal, Bagalicious and my DH who worked so hard getting the glue off the bag frames I ruined.
