New Zipper Pouch

Not much machine sewing going on at this time.  
Summer fun has been calling!

I have however been hand quilting a king size quilt, so that is done in the evening in front of the TV.

I did make a new zipper pouch.
I had bought this super cute fabric at Joann's, but I thought I would quilt it before I turned it into any project.

So, fabric, batting, backing, draw a few lines and hit the machine.  Now quilted fabric!

I pulled up my favorite tutorial from Melanie on my i-pad and got started.
Tutorial can be found HERE

I did change it up a little.

I made it bigger and I added inside pockets


The hardest part for me was to make sure that when I turned the bag right side out the pockets were not upside down!  I was working with, the front, the back, the lining, the zipper and the pockets!

But I am thrilled at how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Sewing!

BTW, I put all the For Love of Hand Embroidery on one page with a link on the side-bar.

  11. Pretty fabric. Great idea adding inside pockets. I saw the list of links for last year's embroidery series. Are you going to host it again this year? It was need seeing the different styles.
