Zipper Pouch

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Having used the recycled zipper from an old purse. It has a lot of metal on it, so sewing over it took some care, but it's so smooth and I love the look! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't miss any of Kristin's steps!!!! Like forgetting to sew the outsides together at the bottom before sewing the sides shut.... Or forgetting to clip your corners before turning - not that I would make EITHER of these mistakes....

What you will need

  • Oilcloth/vinyl coated cotton
  • Pellon craftbond interfacing pressed to the lining fabric
  • recycled zipper
  • thread.
