I played with the zipper case pattern again. I used the fabric I'd quilted as practice last week. It was handy; literally a foot away from the sewing machine when I decided to play.
This time I changed a couple of things by completely ignoring the instructions for the fabrics and only used the assembly instructions. The result is a sturdy bag with quilted sides and a "loose" lining. You know, like purses have.
I'm much happier with this version in terms of the visual and textural look and feel. I still love how the case goes together, so I'll be making more of these in the future.
