In a fit of awesome productivity, I have sewn *two* things this week. This morning I sewed the final button and completed this one:
When you open it up, the inside looks like this. The button loop doubles as a handy hanging loop.
On the inside pockets, I used my favourite Lovely Morning fabric, that I bought from Fabric Rehab. What an awesome fabric shop! I based the pattern on a travel case from Sew Hip magazine issue 26, with a change to add a pocket to store my crochet hooks.
It was the first time I ever attached a zip pocket:
That went well, but it was also the first time I sewed on bias binding. I'll gloss over that, as definitely Could Do Better. The straight edges were fine, but I had trouble sewing round the corners. Tips are welcome if you want to leave them in the comments box.
