I recently showed you a piece of twill fabric that I over-dyed, that cotton twill was perfect for this project.
I started by marking cutting lines on some clear vinyl......and made binding pieces for the cut edges where I would then be adding zippers
The "pages" were made by fmq stitching the twill to batting, laying the zipper pocketed vinyl on top, stitching all around the edges and then putting two of the pages back to back.
I stitched a fabric "spine" to the pages to allow extra room, this way the pages can expand as supplies begin to fill the pockets.
Using a very stiff interfacing (a Timtex type product) I created the cover, added vinyl pockets on the inside of the cover (to hold more treasure) and used webbing for handles. The pages were then stitched into the cover......and now I have everything I need in one place, easy to transport and with lots of room for more stuff.
