This weekend I was trying to work out how to make a ds cosy for my sister. So like I usually do I size things up with paper before I get cutting fabric.
I wanted to make it with depth...like a box with sides as well as a top and a bottom bit.
I drew it all out with measurements on paper and then had a thought.
Do I need/should I/would you/do you... cut all the pieces out individually or cut it out as one piece (as if you were going to make a paper box but with fabric.
I would obv. have to top stitch parts but if you were cutting it as one piece would you top stitch the edges that are already joined OR would you just do the ones that NEEDED it
does this make any sense?
Thank you for your time.
xoxo

When I made the case for my camera, I made six different parts and joined them.  It was a bit fiddly but turned out ok.  You could do it in one piece and save work but the finish would be different, more rounded, less crisp.  I think it's all up to your taste.  It'd look good both ways.  Also topstitching all the sections would make it look better and define the shape better, in my opinion.  Topstitching something for decoration allows you to choose, so you could do the whole of it, or just certain chosen parts.

A ds isn't very deep at all, so I would cut it out in two pieces probably, and after making the bottom seam would pop the corners, like in a make-up bag to create depth. I can't think of the term for that, but check out a make-up bag tutorial!
