As it says the name of this blog, it’s about patchwork, and more. Well, the “more” refers to the other sewing-related projects I like to make from time to time, with more or less luck in the final result. Working with (thick) interfacing and / or zippers makes me not comfortable at all. So this project was a bit of challenge, as it involved both.
It came as a kit, which included instructions, exterior fabrics and needed zipper and straps. I think this kind of “all-included” package is perfect for beginners. I was able to put the bag together -and correctly- really quickly; I must admit that what took me the most time was finishing the seams with bias-tape. But having a nice finished seams it’s surely worth the time!
