Description

I whipped up this little pouch last week before leaving for vacation. It's so sweet and I followed the tutorial below (making the smaller/harder one) it was definitely worth the effort! I used fusible fleece on the inside instead of regular interfacing - it's nice and sturdy! I really love this one - I'll probably make some more of them for Christmas gifts. Always zip pouches! I blogged about it in full here.

PS- always add some bits of hand-stitching to your pouches - it makes SO much difference! :)

Zippers scare me. This is totally adorable, and it would make a cute stocking stuffer!

Mymble

Really sweet-love your hand stitiching too! I love zippered pouches- this one goes on the To Do Project list ;))))

That is really lovely. I can see it being a very moreish project, too. I'm with Mymble re the To Do Project list.....I've not sewn a zip in before.....but there is no time like the present.

Ok- had to make one-just posted it- but I wasn't as brave as you and I did the Big Dumpling- which still isn't all that big- maybe we need to draft the HUGE Dumpling????

Goldwillow come on, surely you're not afraid of a little zipper! Did you see Sara / sewsweetness's zipper tutorial yesterday? It's a good resourse to start with! :) Zip pouches are my go-to quick projects! http://www.sewsweetness.com/2012/10/zippers-4-ways.html

Mymble yours turned out so nicely!! I'm glad you made one too!

Sewnsew give zips a try! Perhaps do a straight one first unless you're really confident. The tiny curved one was a bit challenging even for me (and I've sewn dozens of zips this year). Check out that zip tutorial above!

OH yeah, and... stick around my bloggy friend and I are working on putting together a zip-pouch blog hop to start after thanksgiving... :) I'll keep you all posted about it!

Emedoodle maybe its time to put on my big girl pants and try them.Worst case scenario I break some needles I guess!
