The fabric is called Zenith, and it's barkcloth from Jess's In Theory line for Cloud9 Fabrics. I did a bit of print matching, which I find challenging but fun.
This one is different from my previous one not only in size but also in that the back pocket actually opens - ha! It has a surprise of pretty pink inside.
Besides the print matching, I planned the cutout of the pieces around one of the dots... just for fun. Too bad both halves of the magnetic snap couldn't have a dot. Heehee.
I like how it opens wide. The lining is a gold canvas.
The strap and accent pieces are from some bargain pleather that Jess bought ages ago and if you've followed my blog for long you've seen on numerous other things I've made. I still have some left, so you'll likely be seeing it again. It's awesome pleather to work with - I love it!
The strap was like 50 inches long or so, so with 4 rows of stitching the whole length, it was a long road (you can do the math) and I nearly got highway hypnosis!
Jess keeps designing fabric, which is great for me, because I keep getting some of it to sew more things - yay! Her latest is something different - it's babywale corduroy this time. Here are the samples that arrived at my door the day after our blizzard. It's called Spring Quartet, and it's scheduled to be released in March.
I have a project close to completion with one of those prints (if you follow my Instagram at grandma_g415, you know which one). It sews up beautifully, and I can't wait to show you what I'm making!
