What materials did you use? Cotton quilting fabric, Pellon Iron-on Vinyl, a zipper, a twist lock, quilt batting, and fusible fleece.

What are you most proud of? This project has a lot of steps (not difficult, but a lot), so I'm happy that I could design and create a pattern that my classes could follow. I also came up with a simple technique for making 1/2" Double-Fold bias tape. It's easier that what I've found on the web. My students loved the Goody Hair Clips (rather than pins) at the Dollar Store! Plus, gotta love the twist lock!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are a lot of steps - it's easy, but a lot to get through. Working with Iron-on Vinyl is quite simple, so don't be intimidated by it. And don't be scared by the zipper; just go slowly. In the next few months, I'll have my website up and running and will be selling this pattern. If you are interested in the pattern, become a Sew You Can Fiber Arts Center fan on Facebook. I'll be posting notices there. Or check out
