It isn't as though I don't already have
plenty of projects in the works.
This one just sorta happened though.
I have a book I've been supposed to bring to a friend
for over 2 weeks.
It's waited patiently right by more door.
Since I've been so slow in getting it to her,
I thought I ought to make a little gift to go with it.
she posted on FB that she needed a business card holder
Last time I checked, she hadn't ordered one.
I'm not sure that this fabric is 'her'
but I thought it was better than anything else in my stash.
Problem is, I don't really know her well enough
to know for sure.
It was fun to make
and went together pretty quickly
even though I was figuring it out as I went along.
I'm a bit irritated with myself for having the curve on the flap
going the wrong direction.
Silly thing is - I had my fabrics cut for the other way
but somehow convinced myself I had it backwards.
So I changed it and guess what?
I got it backwards.
Oh well ~ it'll still work just fine.
|in retrospect - I should not have used black thread!|
It always amazes me how much mess I can make
working on one little project.
You'll be happy to know, though
that my sewing desk is still clean :-)
