I finally got in the mood to make my 3 layer IX UQ yesterday. I expected 4 hours and spent about 8 hours. After that, it took me an hour to find my shock cord for the suspension. It showed up in a pack pocket. I wonder what idiot left it there.

I find paper towel mock-ups helpful to make sure I have the details right.

A lot of darts and pins and it's ready to stitch on the bottom cover.
