Our souls have sight of that immortal sea
Which brought us hither.
These little hands are so precious cutting out her first little zipper bag. I had some late summer time with the Florida girls before school started so we decided to make pencil cases. So far they have turned into lip gloss cases, change cases, treasure cases, and whatever is little and will fit cases. We are all very proud.
We decided to google zipper cases so that we could make one any time, even if Bibi wasn't here to guide as we sewed. We watched many videos on U-Tube, and combined several to make our cases special. Both girls chose their fabrics from Bibi's scraps, chose a lining that they like, and decorated the front of the case with ribbon and decorative stitches. It was fun to practice the decorative stitches on the Bernina 350, and they used the guide foot to make their lines as straight as possible.
It was absolutely AMAZING to put the zipper in between the rectangles of fabric. Both girls have learned to sew nice straight seams!
