After I made the first one, i worked on a second. I made it 5 1/2"x13" with 1 1/2" corners. It turned out a bit long and skinny, but I wanted the whole cowboy on there. I'm going to make a different one tomorrow night that has sewing fabric on it. I think I'll try 6 1/2" x12" next time with 1 1/2" squares out of the bottom. The other one had 1" corners and the bottom was too narrow.
