I like to hold straight pins in my mouth.

I am really proud of this one. I've been saving this vintage corduroy for quite some time, hoping my sewing skills would improve enough to dare cut into it. Finally the day has come. I didn't use a pattern or measure anything, I just saw it in my head and made it. I am thrilled with the outcome.

It's a knockout!  The contoured flap is a very nice touch.

Pretty much drooled over that fabric (and the words vintage cordouroy...) in the initial post, then took a look at the details and was totally wowed. What an awesome job you did. Nice thing you created sans pattern!!

Quite impressive. Do you have any leftover material, I can see a matching eyeglass case.

That looks so soft. I love the flap as well. It's different.

Making is my passion. Wine is my weakness. Dance is my medicine.
