So I saw this post ages ago: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31379.0
and loved it!!! So thanks for the TUT!
So I finally have gotten up the courage to try a few harder things (I'm still quite the beginner). And thought this would come in quite handy when we go to Long Pine, NE this year. So onto the pics!
This is the first one I made, more of a trial run to see how it would work, to give myself practice. It was a little too thin so then next ones I lined one side of the outside with interfacing (if that makes any sense). So here is the "practice" one:
Instead of using the carabeeners I used one metal rectangle I had from a previous item and just attached the velcro to one side. I hope that's easy to see in the pics.
This is the second one a made, sewing still not the greatest but better but OOps I sewed one side of the lining inside out! And I did not feel at all like ripping out all those stitches!
So I attempted one more time and this one I LOVE!!!! I adore the lining fabric and the outside is jean material. I figured it would blend in well when I wear jeans which is often! I also added a pocket on the inside of this one so I could keep my phone protected from my keys if they are in there together etc....
The is only one grip about this one and that is that I didn't make the flap wide enough to fold over before I sewed in on so there is a raw jean edge that will prolly eventually fray a bit but it is jeans so it's not so bad.
I'm thinking of making some as gifts for some of the girls in my family
I should've taken a separate pic of the lining to show cuz I just love it so much. Totally reminds me of the 70's.
Thanks for looking and thanks to rocknroar for the great tut!Pics are gone, sorry!!!
