This month our Modern Quilt Guild is doing a zipper pouch swap. Apparently I had pinned this Zipper Pouch Tutorial by the Sewing Chick more than one time on my Pinterest boards so I'm glad I had a reason to make it.
Instead of leaving a hole in the lining of the bag and pulling it through like I have done every other time I've made a zipper pouch, she has you make a small bindings for the linings. It ends up looking nice but it was a bit tedious. I'm sure it didn't help that I was finishing the bag at 11:00 at night.
I used some Liberty of London tana lawn scraps and some Cotton+Steel sparkle linen for the outside. And my favorite Add it Up print from Cotton+Steel for the lining. I used fusible fleece for the interfacing instead of ShapeFlex 101. I wanted it to stand up and have some body.
I really like the way this turned out! I really like the Liberty scraps too. They are the perfect scale for a little pouch.
