This month's Le Challenge theme is "X", the unknown. I have 2 Spoonflower samples that I thought would work great for this challenge - the mathmatical equations and the detective that solves the unknown.
These samples are 8 inch square and are different materials. The Sherlock material is fine and the equations are on canvas. I knew that I wanted to keep as much of the fabric as possible as a whole piece, and not cut into it.
The "solution" was to make a flat zip pouch accented with a bold red zipper. To give the piece a little structure, the samples were backed with iron-on fleece interfacing.
I did break a needle while sewing over the zipper so I learned a lesson to be more careful on my next pouch. I am so glad I finally got to use these samples.
