I cannot stop......

Making little zippered pouches.    These are very quick and easy to make and very addictive.   After making one I had to make another, then another and so on.  They are ideal to use up all those pretty fat quarters that have been lying around for sometime.  There is one more ready to sew in my sewing room.


After making the first one I found that it was much easier to use a long zip, sew it in then bring the head of the zipper to the middle of the bag, sew across the zip at both ends and cut the zip to fit.   So much easier than trying to lift the machine foot past the head of the zip in the middle of the bag.

The charms on the end of the zips are those that I purchased at the recent craft fair.

Linking with Oh Scrap.

Back soon and in the meantime


Happy sewing all

That zipper technique is so simple but such a headache saver. Love the little pulls. I have a wallet with tiny pull and a friend made me a beaded pull, such a big difference, especially if you're in a rush at a store.
