I loved the Pure fabric that the sample was made in over on the Sweetwater blog, so ordered myself a kit.
No matching of fabrics required...
...although I did add the brown flower and button on the "marker" pouch, and used some fabric from my stash for the binding.
I usually HATE doing the binding on any project, but may just have discovered my secret to happiness and binding satisfaction...dark coloured, patterned binding! It disguises any imperfections, and makes me soooo much happier with the final product. Expect to see this again LOL!
While I'm here, I must tell you about my boy.
My poor, sick boy. He has been struggling with the flu since returning from school camp earlier in the week, but has endured training each day since in order to compete at the West Australian State Championships this weekend. He won a gold, a silver and a bronze medal in the State competition today, but had to withdraw from the Elite Competition tonight. He has the UTA Championships bright and early in the morning, so we're hoping an early night might see him well enough to compete...he'll be so disappointed if he can't!
Fingers crossed :)
