I taught a class this month at our church's Christmas Craft Night. I am a firm believer that everyone should sew ;) so I suggested making zipper pouches as one of the activities. I based them off of The Circle Zip Ear Bud Pouch - except that we used a 5x7 piece of fabric, no batting and zig zagged around the inside seam instead of top stitching around the edges.
Here are two zipper pouches made by a mother and daughter team. Love them! They even went back and made a second set of pouches. I love the bright contrasting zippers and pop of color on the inside. Perfect for crayons, cars, IPods and all your special stuff. The only bad part was that I missed out on taking the Learn How to Knit class. :( But that is probably a good thing. Goodness knows I don't need another hobby. ;)
I have been trucking away at making Christmas pillows, quilt and tree skirt but things slowed down when I ran into trouble with my machine. $%^#?^! I was very frustrated with it, but we seem to be doing better. Note to the wise: when oiling your machine be careful not to get oil on the belts. Not good.
Hope you are having a great weekend and can find some time to sew! :)
