Craft Corner: Tulip Case


I decided to break up a few of these posts from my audiobooks. These are the latest craft I've done while listening to said audiobooks. :)


This is a pouch I made for my dad for his sunnies. The pattern is called The Tulip Zipper Case by CloBird Designs. The pattern is FREE and can be obtained at Craftsy (HERE). It is considered a novice level project and I would agree. You might make a few things with zippers first if you are intimidated with them, but really, it was quite easy. The hardest part was placing the blue zip head onto the orange zipper base (you don't have to mix and match but that is part of the fun in this project). Once that was on, it was smooth sailing. The directions are easy to follow and it is a good scrap buster. The pattern calls for foam interfacing but I did this one with thermolam (fleece) interfacing instead and it worked out fine. My dad loves pockets so this one was perfect for him and not only did he have the main zip pocket but the pockets on the front and back as well (blue part). All I have left to say is GO BRONCOS! :D

So any crafty things you've done lately? *crafty eyes*

  3. I am horrible at crafts, just plain horrible. I don't have the patience to do things with my hands that require concentration and precision. I admire anyone who can, though! Can't wait to see more of these posts.

    1. You just need the right craft... if that is what you want to do. :) Plus, I have a sewist in the family I can come to when I'm confuddled. :)

  4. I can't sew to save my life. Lol. Great job! I guess your dad and I are at odds when it comes to football teams. I loathe the Broncos! Lol. #GoChargers!

  5. Loving your latest project even if I'm not convinced by it being a 'novice' level project.
