Another Finished Project
This project, being modeled by the chaise lounge on the deck, is based on the "Wall Organizer" pattern found in the book "Simple Sewing" by Lotta Jansdotter. I added tabs at the top to hang, instead of a panel; the panel looked a little weird to me. I used Amy Butler fabrics, which I LOVE, but if I were to make this again I would definitely use heavier-weight material. The instructions call for canvas, but I loved this print (which is basic 100% cotton quilt fabric) and thought it was worth a try. I did use some iron-on interfacing on the lining, which helped add a little weight & stiffness to help it hang. It's a very easy sewing project - the toughest part is ironing the pockets and lining them up straight, which would have been much easier if I had a larger ruler or cutting mat. Now, I just have to find a dowel or something similar to hang it...there's a little alcove in my new apartment (moving June 1!) that I think this will fit in nicely.
