The inner pieces were totally unlined and without interfacing - there are enough folds and layers to make it strong enough.
I was a bit worried that the inner part would be too big, and it was very tight. I would shave half an inch off the credit card and purse part if I make another.
I wanted a metal zip and there is not much choice of colours (does anyone know a good UK supplier of zips?) Getting the zip in was just as time consuming as I thought it would be. The only way to do it was by hand. The zip was a bit too short and that didn't help. First I stitched the zip to the outer pieced hexagons using a very small half back stitch. It took a couple of goes to get both sides even. After that I slip-stitched the inside in place.
The finished product has a soft feel and appearance that I rather like - the stitches show and the fabrics look a bit fuzzy because they have been handled so much. Oh Ok, I admit it is covered in cat hairs and sweater fluff too.
Okay, okay, the photos are blurry too. There is not much light at this time of year. Roll on Spring.
Overall I'm pretty pleased with this. The Peltex worked. Definitely a step up from the first trial (see about that one here, as well as the £196 leather purse from Liberty that I was trying to copy).
Miss Ted's already asked if I will make one for her.
As it's a Friday Finish, I'll be linking up with Crazy Mom; and when Monday comes along, at Scraps Monday.
