Plastic fantastic….

Possibly not the most ‘pc’ title I could have come up with – particularly with all the emphasis that is around at the moment on plastic waste! But, after using vinyl in a previous project, I decided to try a slightly more ambitious project and chose the booklet pouch – a design by Aneela Hoey. The pouch consists of four vinyl zipper pouches which are bound together. The design is quite heavy on material and there are lots of zips and binding to be sewn. Aneela Hoey’s instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. Here are some pictures of my progress….

Stitch happy everyone!

    Oh that is lovely – I’ve never tried sewing with anything plastic – is it hard?
