Style Stitches Monthly Challenge - Month 4

This month's bag challenge is actually a checkbook cover. Once again, I am not happy with the results. I'm using it, but it's not as nice as it could have been. I think I just get impatient and don't bother with exact measurements and seams. This gets me in trouble.  I mean, I do try...but I'm not there with the microscope making exaaaactly sure I've made a 1/2 in seam or cut on the 1/4 inch. So. My stuff comes out crooked. *shrug* I have a choice. Take the time to make sure my measurements are exact or be happy with non-perfect results.

I should take the time. If I do, I know that I will get better at it and it will go quicker.

Without further ado:


  1. Yes, it takes practic to get where all that is second nature. But don't beat yourself up. You not only challenge yourself on the type of project, but you chose some fabrics that are difficult to work with. All slippy, sliddy, stretchy fabrics. So pat yourself on the back!

  2. I don't see anything wrong with this?? I think it's great! What a cool project! Love that color.

  3. I love that you doing all these challenges... and I think your check book cover is great... thanks for your comment on my post at Sew We Quilt... was great to meet you there...
