Space pencil case
I am totally in love with this retro space fabric and I’ve only just dared cut into it (I brought it about a month ago, once again from my new favourite fabric shop Fabric Rehab – they don’t have any at the moment – cue *evil laughter* – goodies made from this fabric will be appearing in my not yet opened Etsy shop, but probably nearer Christmas, not that the shop is opening nearer Christmas, I’m still planning on opening this summer, Autumn at the latest, but I think this fabric would look good in more Christmas related gifts). Since buying the fabric I’ve seen an oil cloth version of it being using on kids’ aprons in a posh department store near me. Oh I’m fabric obsessed!
Anyway I cut into it to make a pencil case, I need some zip practice before cutting into my even more precious Rob Ryan Clothkits kit, that I got, oooh, last Christmas. I bodged it a little, in that I used my normal sewing machine foot, I’m not so totally over my sewing machine phobia, in that I’m nervous about changing the foot. In the end changing the foot would have been pointless anyway, as I realised I’d brought an invisible zipper and I would have had to have brought a special foot anyway, not that I think putting the zip in with the normal foot has done much harm, looking at it, I can’t see how much different it’d have looked if I’d done it properly.
