So, I decided to try to make a zippered pouch. I haven't sewn a zipper in YEARS. It was quite an experience to try it again. I made some mistakes with it, but I know how to fix it next time. I also would hand stitch closed the inside bottom seam instead of machine stitching it. I do like the diamond cross hatch quilting on the outside of it.
The pouch is 4 inches square on the bottom and stands about 4 inches tall. But when the zipper is opened, it is has a very wide opening. It would work great for cosmetics or to carry a little first aid kit in your purse. I'll need to get working on some larger ones as well.
I may need to link up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this Saturday for this one!
