There is so much wrong with this "quick and easy sewing case" that I attempted that I'm almost embarrased to post it. It was not "quick and easy" for me. I had problems with making the tassel, for pete's sake! And then I had to keep redoing parts of the stitching, because I missed the edge of both fabrics (ie sewing only one fabric, so when I turned it right side out there was a hole). Originally I wanted the yellow fabric on the outside, but I messed up sewing it together, and when I used the stitch ripper to remove the thread, huge holes remained in the fabric. At this point I really considered just tossing it. But I didn't. Why? Because I hate wasting material and interfacing, and I hate to put all that work into something for naught. Don't get me wrong, it still might get tossed, but at least I followed it through to the end. And now I can chalk it up to a learning experience. I'm sure I learned something, though I'm not really sure what.
What is my point? The point is, I suck at sewing. But I still try. I have a friend who won't even attempt to sew because she's "afraid her finger will get pierced by the sewing machine needle." I kinda really doubt that will happen, but it's really sad to not even see her try because of her fears. Look at me. I suck at sewing. I've broken needles. I've wasted countless time and energy and fabric and supplies. But at least I try. I give myself kudos for that.
