Well ... parts of this project were fun.
Breaking two needles in a row.
Unpicking stitches gone astray due to the thickness of the layers.
Those, not so much fun.
I probably shouldn't have used denim for the exterior.
Shouldn't have used fusible fleece for the exterior interfacing.
IF (and that's a big IF) I make this again, I will use something lighter-weight for the exterior with a firm, but thinner interfacing. I just really wanted to make this wallet/organizer to match my Big-Ass Denim Bag.
It's okay. I like it well enough.
I found that installing the zipper was a heck of a lot easier without pinning in place. Pinning something this thick was a nightmare. Everything wanted to shift because it was so thick. I just had to go slow and line everything up as I went. I'd clip and place the corners as I got to them. Yes, I had to stop and start a few times, but I found it easier this way.
I did take the advice of one of the other bloggers and stitch the back zip pocket closed so items wouldn't shift around to the wrong end. I didn't get a good picture of it. Sorry. But this is why I "quilted" the exterior to hide the stitch line.
Please pay no attention to the wonky binding. This thing was too thick for the listed width of binding. Nightmare. Ugh.
