Following up from the absolutely awesome Creative Maker Supply Case, Sara at Sew Sweetness released the Ultimate Art Organiser. It's a similar case to the Creative Maker, but with multiple zipped sections.
This one only comes in the two smaller sizes, as the large one would hold so much stuff it would be ridiculous (and it might just collapse under it's own weight!!).
This testing call was perfectly timed for me to make a special present for a lady who was retiring from my work. I knew she had always wanted a set of the gorgeous wooden Symfonie circular knitting needles, and this was the perfect case to store them in.
I knew she liked batiks from a trip we made to the Sydney Quilt and Craft show a while back, so I used the leftovers from my mum's quilt and pieced the outside.
There are lots of zip parts and pockets
As well as even more pockets - to hold the cables, stitch markers etc.
I would definitely say this is one of Sara's most tricky patterns. The triple zip factor is pretty hard to sew, and I did end up hand stitching in a few places as I just couldn't get it neat. I would also recommend NOT using metal zips - it just makes your life harder! I had no choice because Spotlight is a truly terrible shop and never has a consistent stock that you can rely on...
However, despite my supply tribulations, I loved the end result on this one and the recipient was so very happy with her gift that it made it very worthwhile!
Ciao for now...
