Le Challenge - X

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.

  1. oh my - I have to, really have to get some of both of those fabrics. Where sells them Mina?

  2. Did you design those fabrics? I want some of the equation fabric. Badly. Nice job on the pouch!

  3. A great way to use sample fabrics, and I have broken a needle or two or more, hey who's doing the math, going over zippers.

  4. Love your interpretation of this month's theme! : )

  5. Great interpretation - it did not even came to my mind! Brilliant! Thanks for participating in le challenge.

  6. Great use for those fabrics. The zipper gives it the perfect pop of color.
