WIP Wednesday

I have two items I need done before BioGirl heads off to start her Master’s program! A jewelry case and a NCW. The case was started long ago, I needed to knuckle down and finish it. I am trying to make it a la A Place For Everything, but changing size and page styles. She wants features like in these two cases.

I am making 4 double sided pages for the case. They will be attached with KamSnaps to the case and each other. I am including zippered vinyl pockets, elastic edged mesh pockets, snap tabs for rings, a Soft N’ Stable piece for earrings (wish I had some leather), snap tabs for necklaces, and 2 large miscellaneous pockets.

Here’s the start on the pockets.

Not having enough zippers in the same color I am mixing
blue, red, and yellow for a “design feature”. LOL

Not sure if I will add snaps to the elastic pockets. I am hoping there is enough gather to keep the tops taut to the page. Once I get the page features sewn on I will place two wrong sides together and apply binding to finish off the edges. There will be a lot of binding on this case!

I joined the guild last month and just love it! There are some lovely ladies in the small group I sew with who are members. So glad I found them. Hmm, maybe I need to make another Granny Square, only this time in Christmas colors?

    The cases can be fiddly but when it finally gets to the ‘put it all together’ stage-magic happens! I’m glad you have found the guild-it’s good to get with other quilters!

      My issue is getting snaps on the pages and then being able to sew around the edges! I am failing at it. LOL! > >

    What a cute block! There is no way I would make a case like that for my daughter, no matter how much I love her. LOL
