UPDATED! This bag is taking us longer than we estimated!!
Here's the tentative itinerary for the sew along, and the good news is that if you can't sew along on that day, the videos will be up in the group! Or if you want to work ahead without the videos, feel free! We'll be doing the Factotum from ChrisW designs, an amazing pattern that will impress everyone that sees it! It looks complex, but we'll be there to hold your hand through the Sew Along!

Use this sew along as a guide, motivation, or strict deadlines, whichever you want/need! This is about having fun, not stressing out, so don't worry if you are are a day (or 4) behind. Amanda and I will be working as much as possible to help out in the sew along group, but if we aren't around, feel free to help each other out as well!
