I took Ellen's tip about making the template for the pockets, and I LOVE it! I think I will finally defeat the pockets and get them evenly spaced! I did learn that you need to make sure the pen you grab ISN'T the frixxon pen...even on cardboard it will disappear with ironing...oops!
|Piece of cardboard from a fat quarter|
I really love the zipper double sided tape, but mine wandered off, so I had to use my fabric glue stick. I picked this one up at a discount store, and it works pretty good, but not as great as the tape!
|Zipper! Got it in the right place the first time, yay!|
I didn't get my stopping point picture last night, too tired and too late since I didn't start until around dinner time. I have the pockets with the ID window mostly finished (needs ironed and top stitched), the pocket behind it half sewn (kept sewing it too short and had to rip seams 3 times to get it to match up). My outside is all fused and tucked in, but I realized I forgot to add the snaps! Something else to do tonight...
Still need to finish:
Snaps - let my 'customer' pick the colors
iron the card pocket very carefully so I don't melt the vinyl
fix the pocket that goes behind it
zippered pocket for the other side
And then repeat again for the next wallet! Still have over 2 weeks left to finish, plenty of time!
