Day 3 of bag week: Noodlehead's Gather Clutch
I've wanted to try my hand at making zipper pouches for a while. I've always loved the look of this particular one. At Sewing Summit I received a swag bag put together by Jennifer from Ellison Lane Quilts for a bloggers' dinner one evening. One of the items in the bag was a cute little zipper and zipper pull from ZipIt. I decided to give the shop a try and ordered a big batch of zippers.
I ordered an assortment of 10" zippers. Jennie has so many great colors!
And turned those cute, colorful zippers into these:
Being my first round of zipper pouches I've made, there was a bit of a learning curve. My first few zippers didn't turn out exactly as I hoped, but I did get the hang of it and made a few adjustments.
A couple of these have already reached there recipients. Others are destined for some friends and Miss C's Preschool Teachers. Pouches are a bit addicting. It was fun to pull fabrics that have been sitting on my shelf for a while. I'm already thinking of other fabrics that would make cute pouches.
