I made this a few months ago for the selvedge-along run by Quilty Habit and Quilts of a Feather. I was in a bit of a rush before travelling to the UK, so I managed to snap a few shots on Instagram when it was finished and never remembered to mention it here on my blog. I had started with grander plans for the selvedge-along, but time did not allow.
So, here, belatedly, is my make-it-up-as-I-go selvedge and vinyl pouch.
I pulled out my bag of neutral selvedges and sorted out the black, white and grey ones. I started by making a quilt-as-you-go panel of about 9 by 12 inches.
I added the lining fabric after quilting the panel so the stitching would not show through and it would have a smooth, neat finish on the inside.
I made a vinyl panel with a zipper, and then bound the layers together normally, as I would a quilt, making sure that I machine sewed the binding to the vinyl side so I could hand sew the other side down to the soft, quilted side.
The fabrics I used contain many sewing references, as does the black and white pincushion I made the other day. I think together they might make a nice little set to give to a friend.
This was my first time sewing with vinyl, something I had long wanted to try. Have you sewn with vinyl? How did it go?
I have a big piece of vinyl left in my stash. I had better use it up!
