So I made a little lined zippered pouch yesterday. I took it to work today, Laura was there, and I played around with it trying to figure out how to make it prettier and better and more useful. I decided to box the corners, top stitch around the zipper to make it recessed and add a strap.
Of course I started over with new fabric
I had some trouble and this is not the best prototype. But it is made with love and I want her to have it flaws and all. I can make a better one and send it to her. Still, I am happy with how it came out.
(The photo is blurry because I can't find the camera and took this with my I phone.)
But tonight I sewed. The dogs kept me company until 1030 when they got restless. Then they weren't such good company. But at 1100 I was finished. We all traipsed in to settle in next to the fire. It is heating season.
