I originally got the fabric for a duffel bag but decided to make this instead. The curves were interesting to do but i think i fudged it pretty well ( though there are a couple wonky spots) Fortunately none of the really bad spots can be seen. If you see any way to make this better, please let me know.



Please ignore my very messy bed

my job is sending me to training in the dc area from october to march. great for the career and social life but bad for the crafting.

Cute fabric, did you use a pattern or draft it yourself? You can't tell in the pictures if the curves are botched a little. It looks great!

Nicely done!!! Grin I really like the fabric you used ~ much cooler than a store bought one!! I've been wanting to make something similar, but I haven't the patience without a sewing machine, heh

Thanks everyone! I did use a pattern - McCall 's 2450. It was pretty easy , the worst part was pinning the curves on the arms. I have no idea how to do it correctly but the polka dots pretty much hide the flaws unless you really look closely. I stuffed with the remains of the blue pillow you see behind it. The blue one fell apart a couple years ago but I just knew I'd have a reason for the filling. Its a bit lumpy and was cheapy filling to begin with but it's good for the time being. I intend to refill it later with some sort of pellets or beads plus add pockets. My fiance has request a cup holder but I have no idea how to do that. It only used a yard of 60" fabric (with scraps left over) so it was a very cheap project.

Very cool! I had no idea you could buy patterns for things like that!
You may have just inspired me to try using a pattern and make myself a new one! Cheesy
