Before I could even blog about it, its gone. Nevertheless, the memories are there :) Ever since I saw zipper pouches on blogland, I wanted to make one myself and more than me, my little one was very keen that I make one for her. I kept getting lot of reminders from her :) is when I decided its time I work rather than just gaze at tutorials.
Here's how it turned out
She used it excitedly for about 10 days and :( sad, left it behind in school one day. And she's lost it. Her favourite TRIMAX pens and other paraphernalia along with the pouch are gone. She was upset for a day... (so was I ). I'll make one more now.
The making is super simple. There are vivid tutorials available on blogland.
Four pieces of fabric. The same size as the zipper. I also used a soft sponge for padding in between. All left over fabric that I had in my stash. By the way, the sewing machine is my mother's and is more than 50 years old. Going strong. She has attached a motor also. Though I use it sparingly, I take care, oiling it once in a while. I love it.
I tried this out. Cut circles. Turned them inside out first
Then pinned them like this and
Stitched them one above the other to make it look cuter.
Sense of achievement. Source of scoring brownie points from my lil one :)
