those are so cool!  specially love the first one... colours and pattern are so cute!  and the sewing is so neat... speaking as one who hasn't yet screwed up the courage to insert a zip!

Beautiful job!  I love the colours you used.  Is it based on the tutorial by SewPixie or did you use a different pattern? 

Lucky friend and swap partner!

thanks for the encouraging comments Smiley
i'm going to try to make a couple more to get the stitching perfect and then I might entertainthe thought of selling them. though that does sound like a lot of work so we'll see...

faux china: i made my own pattern for them - trial and error type thing, i drafted one for a long wallet too but it needs some adjusting still

sin: the zipper installing isn't that hard, although little hint: give yourself a little gap between the top of the teeth and where you'll be topstitching. i didn't and broke 2 needles before i just left a blank spot

thanks Smiley Smiley
i did use fabric paint but forgot to iron it...partly because I didn't know I was supposed to but had I known I was supposed to I still wouldn't have because there was a horrible heat wave that day

painting on fabric with a small paintbrush was NOT fun - it took forEVER and I was doing it on the floor which was soooo uncomfy. but I like how it turned out

thanks for looking/commenting Smiley
