picture, if you will, a guy, thinking "I need to remember to put this thing in at my fifth stitch!" about 20 minutes ago. Now, try to figure out whether this guy remembered to put the thing in at his fifth stitch.

Oookay so I re-stitched the center, buuuut unforeseen consequence: now the flap can鈥檛 work. This can only work with shorter pens. At this point I think I鈥檓 gonna finish it for myself and then make a better, working version as the gift I was intending this to be

(First pic is with a standard-size sharpie, second is with a smaller-size fountain pen)

aaaactually that looks like shit so I'm just gonna undo all the stitches, shorten the whole thing out, and start again 馃槱

at least I already did the punching so I'll only have to stitch again 馃様
