I’ve been meaning to write this post up for a while now… about some of the zippered pouches that I have been given, bought and made recently…
I think I’ve told you that I used to be scared of zips… but not anymore! In fact I love working with them! I also love seeing what other people do with them 🙂
At the moment I seem to be collecting zippered pouches…. because I like to put STUFF in them! And I do have a lot of stuff…… mostly sewing, of course, as I have discovered while I have been packing and sorting the past week…
Here are a few that I have collected over the past year:
This cute zippered pouch was given to me last year by friend in Oz who has a beautiful embroidery machine:
It’s all done in the hoop… and is only one of the many designs she makes for sale…
The next one I bought from her during my last visit “home”:
I just fell in love with it!
This one I bought when we had a little fundraising auction for Breast Cancer – it’s made by a friend of mine here in Arabia:
If I hadn’t have managed to get it in the auction, I would have asked her to make another one for me 🙂
Now I do have an embroidery module for Nina, but I haven’t had time to get it all set up and working… so when I had the urge to make some zippered pouches of my own the other day, I decided to just grab some scraps and have a go…
I came up with this one first:
I was quite pleased with how it came out.. but then decided that it really needed another zip there where the two bottom fabrics meet…. so with a scrap piece of paper, lots of scribbles, pins, sewing and measuring later I came up with this:
Remember the fabric? I got it for dog sitting in the summer…
I quite like the end result. I am planning on doing a tutorial on both of them. The first zippered pouch was quite easy, the second a bit more fiddly… but I do want to make more… I’ve already been using both of the ones above that I finished.. and I have fabric cut out ready to make more… 🙂
Imagine, however, how much fun I am going to have when I do finally get Nina set up with the embroidery module…!!!
Anyone else out there who loves zippered pouches?
