I started mine, I am using all stash supplies not one thing has been recently purchased. Red white and blues are my favorite color combos. I used the super simple free Penelope Tote pattern. My mods are a zip pocket, key leash and magnetic closures.
Cutting Out


I was out of fusible interfacing so I just used my favorite adhesive. It is great for applique too, no gummed up needles.
All components gathered
First modification

Plastic placemats cut up make good bottom inserts.
 I have used the thick vinyl  type and the hard plastic.

Bubbling interfacing not good. I lower my iron temp when applying interfacing and I use a china silk hankerchief for a press cloth. I never press interfacing without a press cloth. Why china silk? You can press with it at a high temp and it doesn't melt the silk, and if you get adhesive on the silk it peels off or you can wash it, the silk is also pretty trasparent so you can see what your doing. You also do not need to prewash interfacing because it really doesn't shrink. I also press up and down as opposed to the sliding motion of ironing.

I have to sew six zippered pouches for my little friend Haven. I am going to sew all six at once instead of each pounch individually. Would anyone be interested in seeing how.

When I first learned to sew, sewing multiple items in a time efficeint manner was hard to figure out. Now that I have the knack for it mabe someone would like to see how I do it?
