Two weeks ago, I bought the pattern Sweetpea Pod from Lazy Girl Designs and was hoping to use my new zips to make some of these cute pouches--- Ooops! I really should have read the pattern before placing my order!! I need a 16" zipper to make the pattern and you use half of the zipper and it folds around both sides. =( Perhaps I need to place another order from ZipIt?
Yesterday, I tried a tutorial from A Spoonful of Sugar for a patchwork triangle zippy case. I used 2" squares that were already cut for my leader/ender project and made the pouch a bit bigger than the pattern. I like it, but I am already planning on making another and changing the dimensions. I think making it rectangular will be a bit more functional. After finishing this, I found that they have a Pencil Case tutorial, too. Maybe that will be my next project? Or another earbud case?
In addition to the zippy pouch, yesterday I made a '1 hour basket'. This is my second one and because the tutorial includes time in the title, I had to time myself to see how close I was to 1 hour. 1:28! That isn't bad in my book. Once I made a 1 hour girl's skirt and I think it took me 6 hours!!
Can't wait to get back in my sewing room and create more goodies!
