Four days to Glamp Stitchalot!! But also four days until I give away this charming little train case. I bought the Crimson & Clover pattern from Sew Sweetness (Sara Lawson) a year ago, and I decided to use this swap (glampstitchaswap) to get it out and give it a try. It was difficult to find a long enough zipper, I used a separating zipper with the pulls turned around using this tutorial from my friend Sherri at Thread Riding Hood.
My partner said she likes Alison Glass and bright colours. Check, that’s an easy one and a perfect excuse for buying some yummy ex libris fabric. The pattern has a lot of layers and a construction method that is challenging but leads to a clean interior finish. However to be honest if I make this again I think I will change up the construction and use bias tape to finish inside seams.
This is the medium size, since my partner seems to do a lot of hand work (EPP, embroidery, and the like), and I think it will be pretty useful for that.
