I need to make myself a tutorial, as I have altered the original pattern. It had been a while since I last assembled a case with a button latch, and I forgot to add the button hole when I should have. Also, the button I used was quite large. I needed to make the interfacing on the button flap smaller. The seams were too bulky to fit beneath the presser foot on my sewing machine, so I had to create a make-shift button hole. I also placed the hole higher than I would have liked. Next time, I hope to do better. In spite of my mistakes, my niece LOVED her gift. It has her favorite colors: blue, purple and yellow.
Oh, I have decided to participate in the Crazy Quilting Journal Project 2013 (CQJP 2013) this year. The first photos should be posted on their blog on January 1st. I hope to have my first 6" block completed soon, to share with you. I thought the 6" blocks would go pretty fast. Then I planned my first design... I should know myself better by now!
