Correction, Uptown Girl Tote June 26, 2017

Please make the following correction to the Uptown Girl Tote: Page 1, under the Fabric C heading. Sashing Row Divider: Cut (2) 1 1/2 x 9 1/4".

I inadvertently left out a space between the whole number and the fraction (11/2) and it can appear to the eye as though this strip is 11 1/2 x 9 1/2".
