Zipper Pouch Sweet Swap Follow-up

I know, I have been a terrible blogger of late, but hey, a job and farm animals trump a blog every time!

Last month I told you about The Sewing Loft zipper pouch swap I entered and today I will share the picture tutorial for the pouch I made and a picture of the one I received from Jane Not So Plain's Tori Thompson.

What I purchased for this swap. I had no idea what I would make!

My final selection of fabrics.

Making the calculations!

Cutting the pieces for the front and lining.

Sewing the front center panel.

Making the wristlet loop.

Fusible fleece was added to the front & back panels for stability.

Setting the zipper.

Adding the lining.

I decided to add an inside pocket and a label.

Adding the wrist loop to the right side front.

The pocket and label have been added to the liner.

I finished it so it would stand nicely on its own!

Front - hmm, still needs something.


Inside label - my sister Amy gave me these!

Bottom view.

To finish, I added an amethyst and turquoise zipper pull.

The finished product!

So now I think I should reveal what I got back from my swap partner. As soon as I opened my package, I knew exactly what I would use it for - a knitting project bag! It is the perfect size for most of the smaller projects I work on and is perfect fro taking my work along with me anywhere I go! Thanks Tori, I love it!
Great colors in this butterfly print fabric!
This shows four 100+ yard balls of hand-spun and some needles ready to go!
