Correcting a mistake(a gift for best friend )
i wanted to make some thing hand made for my best friend on her up coming birth day and eventually decided to make a simple zipped vault i thought it will be really easy and quick to make so i did the whole cutting by total approximation with out taking any measurements and the result was this
A squarish thing ! didn't liked it at all :( but instantly understood what went wrong. It was too deep so got a squarish look which was not fascinating me too much .
I folded it a bit to check how would it look with less depth and it did look better in a rectangle shape but the problem is that i am not the kind of person who is sooooo patient to pick up all the stitches to open up a finished thing to repair, this is one of the step i hate in the process of stitching! so instead, thats what i did with the pouch to decrease its depth,
i turned it inside out stuffed my fingers in the corner and stitched across the red line in the picture, cut off the excess pieces and the result was ........
A pouch with a base :) it not only saved me from the pain staking process of opening up the bag to reduce its depth but also looked a lot better then a normal boring rectangle pouch .
i guess some mistakes do turn out good :)
Now my best friend will receive a make up kit bag instead of a vault :) looking forward to her birth day with full excitement :)
