Since I created my doggie gate stopper thing I have been sewing a few things.
Some have been failures, but I have had two, very useful successes.
I made this with some scrap cloth from the dog gate, it’s one of those microwave heat pack things. It’s filled with rice. I can nuke it for 2 minutes and it stays warm for a while, it’s great on my back and the dogs love it too.
And then I made this cute little purse.
I was inspired (and mostly followed this pattern: Easy Zippered Purse)
The only mods I made were a wider strap I did 3.5 inches I think, I also made the strap longer so I could wear it over my shoulder and across my body. Also the overall dimensions are bigger I made it 9×9.5 instead of 7×7.5 so I had to use a 9 inch zipper.
I think the fabric is adorable.
I didn’t finish the seams on the inside very well but I plan to eventually.
I plan on making a few more, but I think I will make them 9.5 x 12 so they are longer, also I will reinforce the strap with interfacing.
