Zip It!

At the weekend I mastered button holes. Today I had a go at zips! And whilst my first ever attempt isn't perfect, I am dead pleased with it!

I made the key pouch from a tutorial by Fabric Mutt. he tutorial was so straightforward and the photos were perfect for a zipper virgin!

I made one little addition - a strap and button - with another button hole - to keep my cards a bit more secure.

The fabrics are Dreamin' Vintage from Art Gallery and Kona Solids. The lining is Moda Essential Dots in light grey. I did a touch of hand stitching on the back in perle cotton.

So cute. Having just tried zippers myself, I understand the satisfaction of getting them to work. So many possible ways to use them too. Have fun!

Very smart Jenny. Have never liked doing zips myself but get away with it when I need to. Have a great weekend. xx

Looking good. I did my first zips last year and then taught my teenage daugther how to make pouches at Christmas, she i snow better at them than I am. x
