I really feel like my completion of this was a group effort. Thank you Lettuce Crafters for cheering me on as I tackled this hard-for-me project!
Lemme take you on a little tour of my new project case and then I’ll give you my thoughts.
Here’s the cover:
Inspired by the Quiltalong I did some quilting. Far from perfect but I definitely learned some things along the way to make my next quilting project better.
And heeere’s the inside: Dah-da-da-da-da-dah-daaaaah!
Here’s a closer look at the right hand side:
So much more awesome to see all my threads all fancy and organized!
But that’s not all! This whole section is a giant pocket! Big enough to keep papers, fabric, or even an embroidery hoop!
And on the left side…
There’s two pockets up top along with some felt so I can keep some needles there. The bottom right has a see-through vinyl pocket which also has a pocket behind it! (Where the pen is.)
And this side is also a giant pocket to put papers, a hoop…whatever I want.
And for the closure I chose a big elastic. I’m constantly putting away my stuff in a hurry (kiddos) so I didn’t want to fiddle with the suggested elastic/button combo or tie closure. I need to wrap things up quickly but also feel secure. And if the case is fat with a hoop or something it should close up nicely.
And that concludes my picture tour!
New things I learned:
- I love 1/4in sewing feet. Got one halfway through this project.
- How to sew/work with vinyl.
- How to make binding
- How to sew a zipper that particular way (easiest zipper I’ve done!)
- How much I love Wonderclips. (I got 100 generic off Amazon for like $7 with a cute tin.)
- First time attempting binding like you all suggested (that Missouri quilt co video).
- First time hand sewing the binding on to finish it.
I took my time with each step. I forced myself to seam rip when I needed to. And I feel way more confident to tackle more sewing projects. Expect more from me!
Thank you all for cheering me on! 🪡
