Moist Banana Bread

Anyway, this so called workshop came with the pattern which had the typical XS-XL on it (though I wish there was an XXS because I guess I'm smaller than the average lady that patterns are made for...) as well as the material (I got to choose from two fabric designs) and directions. On Craftsy, for the workshop, there were more in-depth details of how to complete the project. 
I started this project on a day that I like to call "Sewing with Sue&…
