i know it doesn't look like it, but its mostly square. i sewed the binding by machine, it just wasn't going to get hand sewn by friday, when i work all week. the label is fabric from the scrap bin, and its machine sewn under the binding, but i hand sewed the other 2 sides. i like it alot, and i'm glad to be done.
i also put it in the wash to get all crinkly and make sure all my stitching stays.
