Flora Supply Case


I finally got around to blogging this.  This is the Flora Supply Case pattern, by Clover & Violet.  I looked all over for the ideal pattern, I wanted to make something to hold diabetic supplies for my dear friend who had just been diagnosed with Diabetes.  I searched online and found that Tishia of  #tkinggae on Instgram had made one, and it was adorable.  I messaged her to find out what size, and she was very helpful.  To see her's click this link to her Instagram picture https://www.instagram.com/p/5THUKVpl4z 


I found this amazing fabric from Meerkat Shewshwe's booth at the Creative Festival 2016.  I had never worked with this kind of fabric before, but the colors and textures were so unique I knew I had to give it a try.  This fabric is really hard to photograph, I can't quite capture the colors, and vibrancy. 


It was a fairly simple sew,  the hardest part was adding the zipper and bias tape around it, but just go slowly, perhaps start with a basting stitch????  It's not perfect but I was happy with how it turned out.


These were a few FQ's I got in the Hot Ice line, they're so pretty.  http://shop.meerkatshweshwe.com/products/hot-ice-8s
