2Folios 2gether


I need to confess that I was hiding the fact that I actually made not one, but two Hold-Tite Folios. One for me that I already blogged about, and one for friend Jaye's birthday gift. Now that she has it in her hot little hands, I can go ahead and blab about it too.

I'm glad I took the time to change my thread colors for this visible stitching.

The felt that I used is a wool blend, but the type of felt isn't terribly important you just need something to help block the Sew-Tiles from glomming onto each other from either side of the folio. Magnets gotta magnet, you know...
I took the extra time to hand sew the binding down and it looks much nicer on both sides. This is me, always learning that particular lesson over and over again. sigh.

I also added a little doubled-over ribbon pull tab on the outside to Jaye's folio like I did on mine. I found it really helpful for opening the folio up easily.

Mine on the right is completely filled, both sides with Sew-Tiles, so it's expanded up to full size.

I love my folio! You saved me from having to make one myself, though i might have to anyway, so I can have one for my travel bag. Maybe I need some for my various Sew Together Bags, too? I love this! Thanks so much! It's perfect.

I'm so glad that you liked it. It's a pretty easy pattern especially compared to all the complicated bags you've been making. Or you can make one as a gift for someone else that uses Sewtites.
