This week's project was born of necessity. I am going back to work (long story for another post), and so we needed to buy a second car. Which we did. On Friday. Come Friday night I realized I need something to keep the registration, etc., safe and handy in the glove box. (I know I could just use an envelope, but they get damaged and lost easily. And what fun are they?)
So I decided to sew one. Well, two. We have two cars, why not make two document keepers.
I found some scrap plaid fabric and linen to line it in my stash, and used some buttons I have had forever (I love buttons!) So this project was completely free.
I love that I could make up a pattern and it looks almost like it did in my head. I also love that I finally got to use my button whole maker and it worked perfectly! Love, love, love this sewing machine!
If I had to do this one again, I would add some batting to make it more sturdy. Overall, though, I count this a success.
I will post pictures when I can get the computer to talk to the camera. Right now, they are apparently feuding. Update 4/22/11, pictures finally posted.
