Uh oh, did this one not go smoothly? What happened?

It was fine, I just kept making silly mistakes, like cutting out wrong pieces, cording fraying, sewing on the gold scrolls upside down :) I guess I was just reeeally distracted on this project, trying to get it done during Disco. Yours went much better!

Ya, this guy found them on ebay; cool huh!
