Description


My first Triple Zip- I used "Berry Patch" from Wilmington prints and 2 Riley Blakes for the accents pieces. It went together fairly easily, but I did hand sew the last step- main lining- simply to get a cleaner finish than a machine edge over the folded edges-I'd do a machine edge I think I would have needed an extra 1/4" to fold in- it was tight- probably something I did wrong- but it worked out anyway.
 
This is a fun project- took me about 2 hours and I have a few other fabrics which I think would suit it well so I will probably try a few more- seems like it would make a great gift so I'll definitely make at least one more for my daughter's teacher.

poor beheaded bird ... no the pouch looks lovely. Do all the zippers lead somewhere or are they just for show?

Mymble

Ha ha- One of my cats got him! No- the zippers all work- three separate compartments!

True

Ok I love this...really cute and love the bird fabric LOL about cat getting the one...

Slicksister

Cute bag but I GOTTA have some of that bird fabric!! LOVE IT.

Mymble

True Funny thing is- our rescue cat Eliza has spent the afternoon sitting by the window thinking of that very thing with Mr. Cardinal in our front Holly Tree- she is dreaming now of cardinal Quiche;)

Mymble

Slicksister Glad you like it- the fabric is Berry Patch by Wilmington Prints- it is nice- got it at my LQS

Mymble

Carolmarie Thanks! You can be sure....Eliza's one goal in life other than sleeping is to have our Cardinal on a platter....maybe with a small sprig of catnip for garnish.

True

Mymble OMG LOL my cats share those dreams but it is often a goldfinch or chick-a-dee they have in their sights;-)

Mymble

Ah the inner life of a cat...and as I look at the front of the pouch again, it seems to me as if the other two birds are looking at each other to say- that could be us next!

What a fun little pouch and the bird fabric is delightful. Very spring-ish which I think we are all ready for! I can see this fabric being used for so many things!

Stamdl

Cute! So many fun fabrics to make these with aren't there?

Siffstitch

Ooh, I like that bird fabric!

Mymble

Terryt1955 Thanks Terry- it is a great fabric- fussy cutting the birds would be good too for a project.

Mymble

Stamdl You said it- they could get addicting - but fortunately (sic) I'm running out of zippers, otherwise I would probably have a stack of them in a few weeks!

Mymble

Siffstitch Yes- different than a lot of other 'bird' prints out there- lot's of variety and the light blue is a really pretty hue- hard to see exactly in the pic!

Mary

Very pretty...my mom would love this...she goes nuts over cardinals.

Mymble

Mary Mr too- we have a beautiful cardinal couple in our holly tree- needless to say, the cats would like them as well for an entirely different reason;))))
