Once again Sara of Sew Sweetness came up with an adorable bag (case) pattern....I couldn't wait to make it.
I have wanted such a case for a while... I jump right on it...I was picking out my fabrics before the printer was done printing the pattern....
As you can see...I decided to go with a wild retro red upholstery fabric....I love it !
The pattern comes with 3 sizes ( small, medium & large) I made the medium version ( hope to make the small one since I think it would be adorable)
The medium is ...8" long x 5" tall x 6 deep...a good size case
I would classify this as an advanced pattern...it wasn't difficult but due to the piping, 2 way zipper and turning the whole thing you do need some bag making knowledge...or a lot of coffee !!
The lid has a zippered pocket in it...I decorated it with a few charms & labels ...I think a pincushion or needle book attached would also look cute ....
The inside has tons of little pockets to fill with all your goodies...
I was feeling brave.....so I decide to use faux leather of the handle & piping.... I didn't cut the piping on the bias...the faux leather had enough stretch in it to go around the corners....no problem!
Sara also shows you a cool way to do the piping so you don't have a overlap seam....this was new for me.
You can grab you copy here....happy sewing !!
