I’m afraid of zippers. Never done one before…until now! My new diaper bag doesn’t have any pockets besides one small zipper pocket, so I wanted a pouch I could put my phone, keys, pens, lip gloss and camera where I could get to it easily without digging in my large diaper bag for hours. My Mom is in town helping out and she knows sewing and zippers, so she helped me make a little pouch! It’s not perfect, but perfectly functional for what I need and now that I have done one, I feel like I could make another zippered pouch easily. Happy Monday!
I had some strips already cut and left over from the Window Jane quilt, so I just stitched those together and added some batting to make the pouch a little stiffer and sturdier, so it wasn’t too floppy.
You can see here the imperfection. I stitched this front side too close, it’s attached and secure but doesn’t look quite right. Then I did the grew side and it turned out right 😉
