Just another little zippy pouch...
So I made another zippy pouch. I didn't use a pattern or a tutorial. This is just me. Here is what I have learned. Zippers are nicer looking with tab ends. So I did that. I made this one a little bigger. I stuffed some charm packs in the pouch to show the size. I did not use batting or interfacing for this one as it was really a test pouch. I used a chunk of vintage sheet and some thrift store cotton for lining. I made the big mistake of using some really nice fabric to try an Amy Butler zippy pouch pattern the other day and it was a disaster so I did not want to waste anything really lovely on just another test. I don't know why the Amy Butler pouch was so messed up. I did manage to make her messenger bag for Daughter and that turned out very well. I guess what I am trying to say is that I have the skills but my skills and her pattern did not get along-at least this time. Oh well!
Now that I have the basic design of this pouch, I can go from there. Jazz it up. So there. Zippy pouch number two. Have a super lovely day!
