Let’s start off this post with the one photo I have of this thing…
This is called the Trifle Tumbler. The sewing pattern is by Sara Lawson at Sew Sweetness. It’s part of her Minikins Season 1 collection of pouches and small bags. The Trifle Tumbler is available in 3 sizes, but my patience at the time only managed to make the two larger sizes. This particular one tested my skills in sewing along curves and using binding.
I may have gained experience working with circles, zippers, and binding, but the most important lesson I learned here is that your project is limited to the size of your sewing machine’s bed.
The fabric is another (shorter) story. I was in line for the fabric table at Walmart, when I saw the person before me was buying this fabric. It caught my eye coz it was a cute “Hawaii” themed design. At the time, I was in a souvenir making frenzy. So I thought this would make a great addition. So a few yards were purchased.
Anyways….I may not make this one again (unless specifically requested). I still have the last size unfinished. We’ll see.
