In this instance, the pink full fat quarter is about one inch narrower than the rest of the pieces so it will be reserved for the lining of the zippered pouches we will do next time. The other piece, the green with the circles, will form the inside of the bag and the outside of the bag will be made by piecing strips together.
Now you will sew the upper section to the lower section. Notice how the seams you pressed are pointing in opposite directions? This is a GOOD thing! You can use the bulk from these seams to your advantage in lining up the centers so that the seams match in the middle. Using your fingers, scootch the fabrics together - you can feel when the seams match up. Clip or pin in place here, then continue clipping or pinning to the outside edges. Sew these seams and press them open this time.
