Little Pouches - Gift idea



I'm pretty sure I am getting better at making zippered pouches.
This lovely number took two days to do, only because I had other things to look after.
It's made of a pretty Flower Sugar fabric I bought from Sarah and Quilt Fabric Delights a while ago. I never got around to using it and I'm glad I decided to cut into it.


I'm loving how the zipper ends have come out too. I figured you do have to sew right through them to make them look neat. I think the grey zipper works fabulously with the white, pink and blue.



Inserting the zip is pretty easy too. Just make sure you keep the raw edges in line with the zipper edge and keep your seam allowance consistent and you'll be right.
I made this pouch using my own pattern. I did screw up one part where I didn't box the corners correctly so I had to snip off some more of the edge and re-sew.
Luckily I made it quite big so it came out a decent size.


Little Miss 4 has already stashed it up with some cool things.
I'm thinking you could make some pencil pouches for little ones or perhaps even an emergency first-aid kit for an on-the-go mumma. I can't wait to make more.

I am really in love with these pouches that Jo has made over at Jelly Baby Blog.
She has done a wonderful job on the Mumma bags. What a fabulous Xmas gift idea.

I hope you're up to Xmas crafting.

  1. I love how you add the little tabs to each end of your zippers. I think I might try that out sometime. Thanks for the idea =)
