My Super Bowl Project

So, today, while I was out and about, I "Stumbled Upon" this mini pocketbook pattern from imsatiable need.  I just finished a quilt top and had left over fabric and thought I'd use it.  I didn't have any heavy canvas fabric, so I bought a little super heavy fusible interfacing and ironed it on.

 Cut the pieces for the pockets. 
I ironed an allowance down and sewed it down to stabilize it (plus I like the look of the seam across the front).  Then I ironed it down the middle.

(Sorry this is centered, blogspot is acting crazy tonight).
 Then, I sewed down the middle.  I added the pen holder on the right.  I didn't have any ribbon, so I made a loop from fabric.

Here's the finished product!


P.S. Does anyone know a good editor for blogspot?  This one is getting really frustrating.

Joanna, this is gorgeous! Definitely the prettiest version of my mini pocketbook that I've ever seen! The fabrics you picked are just awesome, and I love that you used a lightweight cotton w/ stabilizer for the outside - a great idea.

Thanks so much for using my tutorial, and for sharing the link and pictures with me! Keep sewing. :)
