I decided that the proportions were a little off (at least for my liking) on the pattern after I had it taped together. I took apart on end of the square piece and adjusted it until I liked it better, then taped it again. I shortened it about 2 inches.
Then I cut out the muslin for my lining fabric.
And I cut rectangles of burlap slightly larger than the pattern piece. I will trim the excess away after I sew it.
I hope I can sew it tomorrow. Or at least decide on a ribbon for the accent. I will also make the hanger out of ribbon.
