I'm still playing around with fine tuning to get the sewing case just the way I want it. This isn't it.
I thought I'd make it 10" x 8" to fit patchwork units but the downside is that I want to work with a 24" zip and it's just not working for me.
I had to bring the back gusset around the sides and that means that the lid won't open back nicely.
The pocket is not going to keep anything too secure being so wide and don't like the top lip above the zip.
I can fix all that by making a zippered pocket, doing away with that top lip on the lid and reducing the size of the bag to 10" x 7" not great for traditional patchwork blocks but I'll have to work around that.
After mulling it over for the last few days, my brain started to dry up and I was told working it that hard was like going for a five kilometer run, it gets tired.
I was browsing around for ideas on the Internet (as you do) and came across some pouches on etsy. I'm a bit scared I might get a slap over the hand for being a copycat. I found some "oh so cute you could puke" (inside joke with DD) appliques using felts that I could incorporate on the bags.
Adorable! I drew the one below for the back. The little girl is having a lovely time with her Panda outfit and her special friend in the spring sunshine.
If friend Chris O likes it, I'll be sending this one to her.
I've been such a bad blogger and very slack in visiting my friends. I've been involved with family so I know you'll relate to that and understand.
Until next time, Janet
