The great Project Starter in me immediately cut the pattern out and cut the fabric up as well. I was going to make the Reversible Version. The Slacker in me looked at that ready-to-go project every day from January until July - saying "I'm going to get to that very soon." In July, I began the great post-camp studio clean up and very soon became right now.

The pattern was a Quilt Stitch and Sew picked up at Houston Street Mercantile, the cutest quilt shop in Texas. The pattern went together quite easily, I'd say in under 2 hours. The most fun part was adding some decorative stitching to the top of the pocket.

I also made the ties reversible. The pattern didn't provide instructions for how to do this, but it was easy enough to just make a long tube with one fabric making each side up. This actually saved me a step because once I turned it right side out I didn't have to worry about finishing off the ends.
This is a great pattern for the beginner sewist! A perfect starter project if you've been in a sewing rut too.
