I do love little bags and pouches. However, I have shied away from making any with zippers until now. You see, Debbie at A Quilter’s Table is hosting a Triple-Zip Sew Along based on her tutorial. I confessed to her that I wanted to sew along, but was afraid of zippers. She offered to give me a one-on-one lesson, which I gladly accepted. I really do have the bestest mom!
In less than four hours (frequently interrupted by a little girl who insisted on “sewing” too), we each started and completed a Triple-Zip Pouch. I made mine out of a treasured Happy Mochi Yum Yum fat quarter, coordinating scraps, and Pam Kitty Love Coral Hearts for the linings. My mom generously provided the matching zippers, as well as the moral support I needed to overcome my fear of zippers. The end was a little tricky (I used Marci’s alternate ending), but I am ever so happy with my finished pouch. I might even (gasp!) make another one some time.
