I used the pattern for the body but omitted the flap so I could attach a Diva Wallet frame. So while it is technically a NCW, it’s not necessarily a NCW. Make sense? No, not to me either! LOL
I used a pretty border print for the outer body, just love the look, but I realize in my OCD brain that I should have put the motif flowers up instead of down. This would have meant cutting and resewing to get the motifs right side up and allow for the pattern to fit the FQ properly. But it’s not a big deal for BioGirl, so no reason to stress overmuch. In trying to use just 3 FQs, cause I didn’t have a 4th coordinating fabric, I had to use 2 different prints for the pocket linings. It’s also not a big deal, just being frugal and using up what I have. I could probably make a zippered pouch from the remaining fabric just to use it up. Hmm, another project to add to the list! Maybe a make-up bag for BioGirl to match her wallet?
I hope she loves it as much as she said she will. Her comment to me after sending her photos was “You’re so talented”. Aw, what a wonderful thing to hear from your child. I don’t think I am any more talented than the next person, it’s just that my passions run to fiber and all related crafts. I am very lacking in the green thumb area, or the CEO realm. But that’s OK, if my hands are dirty I can’t sew or knit, and if I was a CEO I would have time for the crafting!!
So, what has your crafting brought to you lately? Thanks and love from a family member? Appreciation from a charity you made items for? Applause from your crafting friends? Ribbons of recognition from a county fair or craft show? Share all the wonderful accolades you have received, we want to hear about them!
