  • Other: Additional tip from ME at myhalfofthebrain: Because I have trouble even with straight lines, I’ve learned to use a ruler to mark a line with disappearing ink parallel to both sides of the bottom of the bag (at say the 1.5″ mark for a three inch gusset). Then when I’m folding my corners into triangles, I line up my fabric edges on the line I’ve drawn and get a real rectangle for the bottom instead of wonky parallelograms.
