Zippers seem to be one sewing basic that strikes the fear in the heart of almost all sewists or quilters that I know. Back in June we began planning this year’s guild program. We came up with a little zippered pouch to do for one of our challenges. It was going to be great. Then I started to get emails about it. Perhaps people hadn’t quite gotten over their fear of the zipper.
So I revamped things a bit. We moved the zipper challenge to December for those BRAVE ENOUGH to take the plunge. Nine people did. Which is great, I thought it was only going to be me and one other lady.
I’m really happy with the way the pouch turned out. I used a puffy batting that I had a little piece of and it really made the pouch seem like it had some substance – nothing flimsy here. Love it. I laugh in the face of zippers!
