Pattern Testing Results

I gave the testing team a tight deadline on this one because I knew it would make such a great Christmas present and wanted to make sure you all had time to sew it.  As always, they rise to the challenge and created some pretty bags and made sure this pattern is spot on!

Louise – I liked it. Lots of compartments to keep things separate. Like the chain holder. Hopefully, will keep necklaces from knotting.  I used a Pellon fusible lightweight interfacing and a Pellon fusible fleece. They worked well.

Sarah – the only thing that held me up with this pattern was how great it was.  Every time I completed a section I had to get out some jewelry and start adding it in!

Donna at Stitched by Donna – I love the pattern. I added topstitching to the flap on my purse.  For the interfacing, I used Pellon Shape-Flex SF101 – woven interfacing, and Pellon Fusible Interfacing. I used Pellon sew-in heavyweight stiff interfacing instead of cardboard for the earring holder, so the purse can be washable. I then punched holes with a regular hole puncher on the interfacing only before placing it in the stud holder.

Linda – Great pattern. Easy to put together. Unfortunately, I did not have a very fancy fabric to test with but next time I will try it with one.  I loved the idea of making a jewelry organizer. This one has a lot of pockets and has a place for everything, rings, earring, chain. I liked the zipper pocket to make things more secure. However once closed it's not too big to get into your luggage and things stay in place. I loved the way it looks like a purse once closed making it pretty and feminine.   

For the interfacing, I used Pellon 911FF. I loved this interfacing for cotton. I have used it in almost all my bags. For the fleece,  it was not fusible so I used HeatnBond Lite to fuse it to the fabric. It worked great.

Sara at Made by Sara – It is a lovely bag! I love it! Although I didn't make the chain holders and added a larger ring holder for mine. I think you have thought about all the necessary pockets and closures to keep everything neat and safe.  For the earring holder, I used a clear vinyl as a liner instead of a card to make it washable.

Crystal – this is a great idea, I like that there is a place for nearly every type of jewelry… the satin look is pretty. I was curious about the tie option and how or if it was functional – it looks pretty but its really optional I think. Mine stays closed just fine with the magnetic closure. I used baby snaps, and Kam snaps (prefer to avoid hand sewing of snaps).  When I make this again, I'll use one layer of fleece lining, and one layer of heavy craft fusible for added stiffness.  And it can easily be adapted to suit your own jewelry – for my next one I'll make those chain loops longer and use them for bangles and big hoop earrings.

    I’m confused about the instruction of Pattern Piece A. It says to cut 2x fusible interfacing and 2x fusible fleece. However, in both the sewing instructions and video tuturial, there is no mention to use BOTH the interfacing and fleece on Piece A. Should it be one or the other depending on fabric weight?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Lara, the answer to your question is on page 3 and 4. Please have another look.

      • Lara Powers says:

        Thank you for the reply. Next problem: The fusible fleece is not adhering to the fusible interfacing which is already applied to the fabric (Piece A). Any advice welcomed. I’m trying to make 5 of these by Tuesday morning (Christmas presents).

        • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

          HI Lara, try not use steam when ironing the interfacing and see if that does the trick. Sprayable fabric glue would be my next move if the dry iron does not work.
