Shoestring on

What materials did you use? I used techniques learned in Stitch & Slash Class with Carol Ann Waugh to make my own fancy fabric out of five layers of fabric. Fun class with Carol. Made a zipped bag to store/carry my Kindle. I like to listen to books while I travel.

What are you most proud of? Carol, I started out with 4 layers of fabric, and soon found one more way to add a pop of color. In many areas I cut through all four layers-- so I could slip a 5th fabric on the bottom, just to get a look see. I was really shocked to see the bright pink candy fabric won out. I attached the pink fabric on the bottom, then put on my quilting foot and stitched the devil out of it. I was pleased with the finished funky fabric and made a zippered bag to hold my Kindle. I lined the bag and added a small pocket in the liner to hold my earphone buds. Perfect! I love it. One day project! I had so much fun I'll make another one tomorrow. Thanks Carol Ann. I had a great time.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to sign up for this fun class. I discovered, the more I slashed the better it looked. Wow--this was really fun.

How cute & useful as well. I like the idea that Shoestring doing by adding two deep pockets inside to put tall idems from crushing other things in the bag. I love all the amazing things that all have posted,sure helps to kick up the artist juices.. :)
