PATTERN DETAILS

This simple little zipper pouch is modeled to look like a silly little squid. Complete with tentacles, hood fin, and doofy eyes. The back of the squid opens up for a fully lined storage pouch via a zipper sewn in with the centered method. Minky is used in the sample pouch photo with a quilting cotton lining. I suggest using a similar plush fabric for this project. Fleece, felt, or terry cloth make great alternatives. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Fusible web applique Curved sewing Sewing many layers Basting Zipper installation (centered method) Ladder stitch Whip stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One pouch: 15" tall x 6" wide Storage area: 8" tall x 4" wide

Sew Desu Ne?
Hello! My name is Choly Knight and I'm a seamstress of over 15 years from Orlando, Florida. I've been sewing since middle school and have yet to put my machine away. I'm the author of several craft books from Fox Chapel Publishing, including Sew Kawaii!, the Sew Me! series, Craft Projects for Minecraft, and more to come! I studied Art and English in college, so it's been a dream come true getting to work in a field that lets me combine my passions for writing, fine art, and craft art. I'm deeply inspired by Asian and Japanese art and craft as well as anime and kawaii style. The anime community has been more supportive than anyone as I ventured to learn to sew, so you'll find my designs are heavily influenced by that style.
