your instruction do not match your photos. #1 has the lining fabric facing the cover fabric which is right side up but #5 has the right side up but the lining is beneath the cover fabric(considering that some of the seams were sewn in #4). I'm really upset because I cant get it right. please help me.

I'm making some custom hair sticks for my best friend for her birthday, this would be an awesome tutorial to make an organizer for them.
