Corners cut off

The reason I like this bag is because to make it 3D you cut a 2" square at each bottom corner of the side panels. I have noticed the same technique on other bag patterns but this was my first encounter and I thought it brilliant!
When I made my first bag a friend commented "Oh you haven't covered your seams" - we are that kind of friends. It hadn't occured to me one could or would but now I like to cover mine as well. So that was a good friend.

Matching up base and side seams and showing  corner seam covering
ready to catch down by hand.

Lining side of a bag with panels joined and seam covering strips
added at the same time.
