DH made. Could I, please, make some type of “pouch” that would hold his electric shaver, cord, etc, that would travel well and keep things together. Absolutely! I mean, how hard can a little project like that be??!!!!! At first I thought…ok, a draw-string pouch—–uber simple! Naw! How about……..a black denim (from my stash…..yay!) Dopp kit/bag!!! Yup….that’s it! Now, rather than “reinvent the wheel” (my fave cliché) I’ll just find a tutorial…..somewhere…….like HERE! Lindsay designs the neatest patterns for children’s clothes, etc, surely she must have worked out the kinks of such a construction. Well, she really did IF I would have followed the directions instead of jumping into “some foreign place in my head” that told me to do it another way!!! Consequently, the activity of this Monday was……..FROGGING!!!! Not once, not twice but….well, sigh, I lost count! Ugh! But persistence prevailed and the finished kit/sack is done…………………..
My advice: just follow her directions! I did serge all the edges of the pieces before assembling and used the 4” suggested “box” end measurement. The zip insertion was super easy. I put a web loop handle on instead of the self-fabric.
Now…..off to pull together a totally trashed sewing area! How did that happen?? It was only 1 little project!!! Sigh…….
