Sewing Summit Prep

That's right!  I'm going!  I am so stoked.  I got all the classes I really wanted and expect to have a great time and learn new skills.  A whole weekend hanging out and sewing? Awesome possum.
So onto the sewing.  I made my Crafty Chloe zip pouch that I already showed you and I super love.
 I also made another project.  This was one of those projects that just didn't work.  I theorize that I was over thinking it, but it took me three tries to get the stinkin' thing to work.  I was ready a few times to just give up, but in my mind it was so great and I had already gutted the book.  Poor, Now We Are Six.
But victory, I did it.
I figure I can use it to hold my phone, room key, class schedule, stuff like that; things I'll need along that I don't want to put with the sharp stuff. 
It has two elastic pockets, one on each side, and it zips closed on the three sides.  The zipper is what gave me fits.  I was trying to sew it to the fabric lining, but it kept getting all crazy.  I finally just hot glued the zipper in first, the book is thin enough that it was a perfect fit that way.  Of course.  Sewing instead of gluing has been my downfall before.  I should have known.  Next time, next time.
