This is my first version as a trial of the pattern.
It is an all in one piece but next time I think I will add the flap in seperately.
I didn't like turning the inner corners although this may be the best way to have a neat, compact finish.
The lining has it's own reinforcement made by cutting heavy sunblock fabric to the exact size of the finished article and top stitching them together in a pleasing pattern.
I think that worked because it means there is no extra bulk in the seams but the piece is still stiff.
The strap is one of my Mother's necklaces.
Next time I need to use a smaller magnetic closure and place the magnet on the flap so there is less interference with credit cards.
Also a flat button would have been better than one with a shank.
