I don't aspire to be a great seamstress or anything. I'm just aiming to become semi-competent at the projects I'd like to make. I followed the change purse tutorial from Split Yarn, and I made it slightly bigger. When I was finished, I thought my iPod might fit in it, and it does! Perfectly! It's not a Mini or anything either.I'll have to decide what it's actually going to be used for fairly soon though, so I can place the snap in the proper place. I probably won't be picking up the snap until the weekend though, so I've still got a bit of time. It is so nice to be able to make a two sided fabric. It looks so much more professional.
This change purse is a great "practice my somewhat lacking sewing skills" project.
I had this great idea about knitting a blanket and having the "wrong" side lined with fabric. Or quilted fabric. Or something along those lines. I might make a practice blanket for the cats. How 'bout felting the knitted side, and then quilting the other? Oh, I like that idea. Perfect for the kitties. Stu will definitely give me attitude when I make the boys a pink floral blanket. Hehe.
