In the hoop Pencil case.



I made this using scraps of off cuts.


I had a few problems with the directions and wondered if anybody else has used this design.


The applique was so simple but the construction was more complicated than usual. I printed out the PDF and thought I followed it exactly but must have gone wrong somewhere as I had to unpick a seam. Just interested if it was me or not.


Any feed back would be appreciated.


Thanks for looking.
I made a second one and went much slower and made notes as I went along. Still think the directions leave a lot to be desired but happy with the result.
This is one project not to be done when all you hear is Mum Mum I need you in the background.

Both are beautiful! They look a little complicated for me to make.

The applique part is the easy part. Just need to concentrate on the construction of the rest of it.

I like your bag-I especially like the music scrap. I think you did a good job even if you had to correct a seam.

It's cute as can be. Forget about their directions. While you remember what did work, write down and type up your own PDF for next time! This is too nice to only make one..

I plan on doing another one and will make notes on the print out as I go this time.
I really like how it looks so won't give up.

I have this pattern too, and the sides of mine didn't go together as well as I wanted. My zipper would have been better if I had tucked it inside like yours rather than having tabs on each end. I do like your choices of colors.

babash by babash 22 Sep 2018

The zip was tucked in on this one and the sides stitched fine. It was the top and bottom I had issues with. The colours were off cuts and I got DH to pick 12 from a stack I had and put them in whatever order he thought looked good.

sewdeb by sewdeb 22 Sep 2018

Your husband has a great eye for color and the arrangement is spot on!
