If not, why?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It was an easy and fun pattern. I couldn't get the pattern to print to the correct scale so I redrew it. I had to trim quite a bit of the plastic canvas to get it to fit.
Fabric used
Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic poplin and pink eco felt
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
I modified the front opening to have a velcro closure instead of a magnet. I sewed the velcro onto the flap and the top of the mailbox before inserting the canvas. I also used a snap for the flag instead of magnetic snap. Instead of blanket stitch for the hand sewing I used a ladder stitch for invisibility. I don't like the tacking stitches for the wire. Next time I would modify to add a casing instead of having to tack the wire down. I also used some electrical wire that I had instead of floral wire.
Would you sew this pattern again?
