I've done all the conceptual type things, I even went so far as to make a mini paper version of my case. Two different ones, actually. One that was all colored in and pretty, and one that had working pockets! I've graphed them all out according to my desired meaurements and pocket size. I bought fabric and decided on an order of colors. I've been really anxious to start working on this because I really need a multi-function needle case...that's cute too.
I bought the fabrics at JoAnns about a week ago. I loved the colors together. Don't they look nice?
Well...now I'm tweeking. I cut all my fabric and put the pieces together. Lined them up side-by-side, I even got some interfacing ironed on to a few bits. The entire time I've been cutting pieces I've been trying to convince myself that I like the color combination. But I have to be honest and say that I don't. I'm using a substantial amount of the green fabric and it's not playing nice with the others.
The lighting is bad, but even in good light I don't care for these together.
These 2 together aren't so bad, but I need all the fabric to look good.
Anyway - here's a little peek at my stack of fabric. :)
And the front/back cover.
