Cases And a Cover

I got a couple of cases made this week. I thought I’d made a mistake and forgotten to add the cord at the right stage for this first one, then remembered I wasn’t making a bag after all! I added a piece of braiding/trim and a split ring. This is the felt side:

And the back/fabric side:

I did change my mind about what I was going to do with the piece of felt I used on this next one. If you saw my last post, I’d planned to make a small shoulder bag. But as I was cutting it out, I thought it was too narrow to work that way, so also made this into a case:

I changed my mind about the fabric to use aswell, I wanted something a bit more sturdier, so chose what I think is upholstery fabric:

A while ago, I made a piece of nuno with lots of shrinkage and rippling. I kept looking at it and thinking it’d made a cool book cover, so that’s what I did. This is how it looked after sewing up, but without a book in, outside:

Inside:

I wanted to keep all the edges as they were, and only had to trim off one small part. I haven’t decided which side I like best, so here’s one side:

And the other:

I might go over the stitching again, I want it to be secure, but don’t want to zig-zag stitch it as I like how the edges look.

    Very nice, what size are the cases? You probably told us last time but I have forgotten. The book cover is fabulous, such great texture.

    The orange case looks fab with its jazzy tab and the new fabric for the pink one goes so well – love the texture on the front and the back has a cosily traditional look to it.
    The book cover is pretty and looks very tactile.

  3. Great little cases. I would call them bags but does that always mean a ladies handbag or shoulder bag in the UK? I like the organic and very textured book cover.

    Really jazzy book cover. I like the case as well.
