One of my goals this year and the year before and the year before... etc
was to conquer the zip.
Well I don't know about conquered but we are on speaking terms.
I've been using Randi's awesome tutorial.
It's a great tutorial, I have been stealing 10 mins here and 10 mins there
and making these over the last few weeks.
They are not perfect, this one has weird roundy corners,
don't know why this happens. Chrissy took this one.
The one bottom right is lined with nylon fabric to keep the ah, damp underwear
that Annie creates sometimes on our outings.
The lining sticks out too high and the zip doesn't work that well.
This one is not too bad. Still had odd corners.
I'm keeping templates in it for some Easter Bunnies I'm making.
(as an aside, I'm determined Easter is not all about Chocolate this year)
This one looks great, except that's the lining...
I put the zip on inside out or back to front or whatever.
The inside is super pretty!!
They are super fast to make in small snippets of time
and the zips are 50c each at Kutwell Fabrics and the fabrics all from my scrap bin
so I can keep on practicing.
This one is not too bad, shame it's such a weird shape.
But it holds a pair of scissors, some panadol and a pen to keep in my Playcentre bag.
I love them all actually. I just wish they were perfect.
Oh I made another one for my long-suffering friend Deb,
hopefully she can put her specs in it, but it may be too um, narrow.
Perfection is so over-rated.
Ah well, I can think of 101 reasons you need a zippered pouch for,
so I'll keep right on practicing!!!
