Read the pattern...then check!

By the title of this post you can all guess where I am headed!
I have been busy working away on my SSCS present....determined to finish it and then relieve a bit of pressure in the rush towards Christmas. Last night I was heading off to bed, then realised that with a bit of focus I would be able to finish the handwork on the gift & it would be ready to whip up this morning...what could be easier!!!!!!!
Patchwork...done!
Embroidery...done!
Handquilting...done!
Lining assembled & ready to go...I feel good!
OMG...why is the outside 2 whole inches bigger than the lining?????????
Out comes the tape measure & I realise my error....
SO always check & recheck.


Thank goodness for these tools....
add a dash of inventiveness & it was saved...whew!
It is now complete...I love it & I hope it is loved by it's new owner too!

It looks really lovely. I have been the same, wanting to get things crossed off the list.
I did a similar thing to dd's santa bag, except I cut and stitched the lining the wrong way round, so it got 'dodgied' up a bit to save alot of reworking, and you can't tell unless you look really really closely!

Dont you hate it when that happens. I hope it still turns out okay and it is bigger not smaller!
