Wow! Has it really been two weeks since my last post? Time sure flies. My only excuse is that I did have to travel for my (day) job last week. I have lots to share. A few months ago (on another business trip) a work friend admired my computer tote and asked me to make one for her. I found the perfect fabrics and got to work. I used Peltex to provide sturdiness and also a lightweight fusible on the lining. I tried something new - an interior zipper pocket. It turned out pretty good for my first time installing that type of zip! I learned a few things along the way too. My Juki performed flawlessly through the construction. I did have some trouble with tension during the quilting of the exterior though. I adjusted the foot pressure, tension dial and stitch length and I was still unhappy with the uneven stitches in some areas. I am sure it is user error of some sort and I will just have to keep playing with it. I also made a quilted laptop sleeve and zip bag (for cords) to coordinate. She was happy with the end product and maybe someone will admire it and I will gèt some more business!
