What materials did you use? Fabric book scraps, old pair of blue jeans, cotton fabric from old curtains, cotton batting, 3 small buttons, basic sewing materials, 9" blue zipper.

What are you most proud of? I like that most of the materials are recycled and I like the front pocket.

Marie Withrow on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I should have done a better job of measuring the front as I sewed the pieces together - I kind of winged it... so, the pocket is not quite centered. My husband said it made it look more hand made - so I'm sticking with that

Thank you!

Marie, can you share the patterns and instructions?

Yes. Sorry, the source used to be in another section that was deleted when Craftsy updated the look & feel of this section. Anyway- the basic instructions are in Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects on p. 135. I did not use that pattern for this - just cut scraps and a center piece to fit the same size of the front piece and continued accordingly. My local library has a copy and Amazon sells it for about $16.00. Hope that helps!

The imperfections in handmade items is what makes them perfect! Great job!
