Sewing Project: Portfolio 1

Here is a new addition to my line of sewn items. I have seen similar portfolios before. My version is made of upcycled wool tweed fabric, claimed from a men’s jacket, and lined with natural linen for contrast. To give it a more feminine look, I embroidered the linen strap that makes up the closure.

Sewing Project: Zippered Pouches 2

After mastering the smaller cotton pouches, I ventured out to make a medium size linen one. The pattern for this pouch is just slightly different. I like the fact that the end of the zipper is on the outside. It allows for the pouch to be opened wider. The little fabric cover over the zipper end adds an elegant finish. You don’t see it here in these photos, but the lining of this pouch is of the same dark brown fabric as the zipper cover.
