Quick Weekend sewing project

Getting back from hols, I just had to get at my machine again quickly.

So I picked a quick sewing project from my increasingly long list.

A receipt and voucher holder to remedy stuffing all my receipts in my bag and never having the right vouchers with me in the shops.

I made a bit of a boo boo when cutting out the holes for the magnetic clasps and tore the fabric and had to start again on that side.

I also wanted this yellow bike to be on the front but didn't think that through right when cutting.

I got the magnetic clasps in a parcel from Etsy seller, 3DPatternPaper and they were thinner than normal which is great for projects like these. However being square you really need to watch how you put them in so that they are both straight! Ask me how I know...

You could also make without the clasp as it stays together pretty well. I used a stiff interfacing on the pockets and exterior fabric but no wadding or fleece to keep it slimline.

September Queen Stash Bee

This month it is my turn as Queen Bee for the Stash Bee group. Check out my post that is over there at the minute to see what it is all about and the blocks I have chosen.

You will find out more about me and may even contain some pictures. I am trying to get over the weirdness of them being online as I don't usually participate in the whole "live my life on social media" thing.
