When I was making the Divided Basket I received comment that my lining looks like sunrise so I took the leftovers and turned them into Le Challenge project.
Inspiration comes from Svetlana and Rachel. I went with the easier tutorial with raw edges inside.
You can see that I topstitched only once on one side and twice on the other. I recommend you only stitch once further from the zipper but still catching the zipper side inside. As I topstitched too close to zipper it was sort of flipping over not holding the shape properly that's why I went with the double topstitch. I guess my batting was too thick for this kind of pouch.
I made it a bit too small so there was not much room to make it too boxy. I left the corners without trimming as they are not too big.
You can check what others have created for the Rising Sun theme here.
Not a big finish this week you say? Well I got one more but only sneak peak for now.
Plus I got something else to share for the Valentine's theme. My girl wanted to learn how to sew. I'm not keen on letting her go on my machine so she started with some embroidery. She did pretty well.
|I had to wash it since it got dirty during the making process. I didn't want to ruin the texture of embroidery and it looks like really badly ironed. Oh well.|
Happy Valentine's Day!
