What materials did you use? Any fabric I could find in the house - including a tea towel and a table cloth...... I bought a handful of long zips at a flea market. As it is not so easy here to find fusible fleece, I used non-fusible which I basted to the outer fabric first.

What are you most proud of? I make every pouch in a different coloured fabric, which means I have become a lot slicker at threading my overlocker! I do not find that a chore anymore.

You did a wonderful job- these are beautiful! It looks like none of your curtains or tea towels will ever be safe again! I've been known to cut up a shower curtain or two for my projects as well.

Amy - I just can't stop making them! I really want to move on to do the scarf.......perhaps after Christmas :-). Thank you for this course, I used to be a little wary of my serger, but I'm much more confident now. Great fun!

These really are lovely! I am new to serging and am so enjoying Amy's class. I look forward to making some of these darling zipper bags.
