Zip-Up Tray Pouch
Friday, March 24, 2017
Happy Friday! Earlier this month I had the opportunity to do some testing for Aneela Hoey's new pattern, the Zip-Up Tray Pouch. I wanted to share my pouch here and talk a bit about it today!
I recently picked up this really cute pencil fabric from Noteworthy by Erin McMorris, which I used as the starting point for my pouch. I pulled blenders from my stash to match for the interior, sides, and binding.
This was my first time using a separating zipper, which is a must for this project. This allows the pouch to easily convert into a tray.
I bought my 10" separating zippers from Zipit.
The construction of this pouch is fun and interesting, and isn't too complicated. I love how it snaps back and forth between pouch and tray. I took a quick video to show how it opens and closes.
I've already used this pouch to corral hand stitching tools on the couch. This project does require some hand sewing to finish, but the whole thing came together easily in an afternoon!
