A busy September

It's only when I went back over my September blogs to find my finishes for this month that I realised how much I've achieved. Several small quilts and some other small items.

This is my latest finish - and last for September. Number Two Son is a DJ and has recently bought himself some new headphones (or rather we bought them for him for a joint birthday and Christmas present) and I offered to make him a case for them. And then I had to work out how to make it. It's been one of those things that has presented itself to me in the wakeful hours of the night, and I finally worked out how to make it.


I didn't want to use buttons or velcro as that seemed a bit 'girly' so I used a zip around the 'equator' of the bag; I used double layers of wadding to give it a bid more body (and I've just discovered iron-on wadding, perfect for this type of project). Don't you love the fabric I found?

What great fabric and a great make.
I love iron on wadding as it's so easy to use with awkward shaped projects

Fabric is perfect...yes, zipper is better than other means of closing. Son will be very pleased.

Very cool, and the fabric is fantastic. I'll bet they are nice and cushy with the 2 layers of batting, and will offer very good protection.

So clever! This really is a pattern of your own design, very impressive. Yes, the fabric is perfect, and beautifully lined.. Was the iron on batting easy to use?

So fun when you find just the right fabric to make a project perfect. Great effect on the zipper, they have always baffled me.

Oh my goodness! That is so perfect! He'll be showing that off for sure.
