Open Wide Zipper Pouches
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
Happy Wednesday! I am a bit behind on sharing projects here, so over the next few weeks I'm going to try to get caught up on that. Today I have a few open wide zipper pouches to show you. I made these all last month, and in my defense one was a gift, so I had to wait until it was received!
I love making these pouches, it's such a great tutorial (by Anna), and they turn out so cute. I was in the mood for a few new knitting project bags and I knew my friend Jacey could get use from one for knitting too!
I made my pair of pouches using some prints from Geometric Bliss. I knew I wanted to use the mobius stripe in a different way, and this pouch was the perfect size for it. The little bud print was perfect for the inside, and I used the same print for the end tab as an accent.
For the second pouch I used the coral poppy print, which is one of my favorites from the collection. This pouch is a bit more bold, with the tessellate print for the lining and tab.
For Jacey's pouch I knew I wanted to use this coral print from Meadow by Leah Duncan. I paired it with some linen scraps to do a contrast bottom. From there I pulled the blue lining and yellow zipper from the colors in the print.
All of these pouches are the medium size. I used Pellon SF-101 to interface them, and the zippers are from Zipit.
I always enjoy making these pouches, they come together super quick and function great. I'm sure there are more in my future!
