Jul 03: Most of the fabric is cut. Still need more black handles.
Jul 04: Everything is cut now and ready to sew.
Jul 10: These have covered my work table for nearly a week (lots of planing work). Hoping I can start sewing this afternoon or evening.
Jul 14: Finally made a start. Doing the UT bags first. Pockets are done.
Jul 16: Making good progress with a lot of pin basting done. All set to start putting the parts together.
Jul 17: Attached bands & top stitched them, made the outer & lining bags.
