I made this, y'all!!!

The size is 10 L x 3W x 4H
Well, I just had to post this because I just got back from my sewing class and can you believe it...??? I put in a zipper---of all things--put in a zipper!!! And I made a button hole (actually the teacher had to practically do that one for me). And we embellished the ribbon and did a gusset and ----I am impressed with myself as you can see!  Could I do it again?---probably not because I don't have all the feet involved and Sherry, thanks so much for that button hole foot because I needed it!   You need feet for everything and actually my Bernina fund is drained for now.  I really wanted that zipper foot but I asked myself, "how many times are you gonna put in a zipper?" Not too many at this point. Oh, and we quilted it too--but do not---I repeat---do not zoom in to this picture unless all my quilter buddies might want a good laugh. I actually quilted it on the wrong side so the bobbin thread quilted it---then I went back and free motioned it on the right side so it is pretty much a mess. But that's ok--it was fun and I love to sew.  I had a hard time cutting my fabric and now I know why I didn't sew as a child.  I never have been a good measurer---even measuring twice and cutting once. I measured 5 or 6 times and still cut it wrong. But the teacher was patient with me and came over and cut my fabric for me. I'm learning.

Oh that is really cute?? What size is it? Looks like it could be a glasses case, but the in comparison with the chair, I don't think so....Love the fabric and colors!!! Way to go Martha!

It's adorable! Maybe a pen case? Not sure of the size. Congrats on putting in the zipper. It all comes with practice - but you know that, being a teacher, right?

Well done Martha, I'm so proud of you. I am not good with zippers either. I think it's very pretty. Now use it, don't just put it away, ok!
