I finally faced my fear of zips and made a zippered pouch.
I will add the link to the tutorial l used later, for some reason l can’t copy the link at the moment but it was by skiptomylou.
After 5 days of reading various tutorials l kind of had an idea of what l needed to do.
It was easier than l thought it would be but maybe that was because l had researched so thoroughly.
It opens ········
Its even lined.
My corners aren’t fantastic though.
This ones worse ·········
Overall though l am very pleased with my first attempt.
Next time l would sew the lining slightly smaller as it does bunch a little inside.
I wouldn’t say my fear of zips has been conquered but l’m not as scared as before.
I even got to use my zipper foot which until this week l didn’t know l had. Its brilliant.
I feel alot better today after finding some time to craft. Yesterday wasn’t so good, l only managed a few rounds in MrK’s sock.
I need to create every day ··········· obsession?
With that said, l am now going to sit and do a few more rounds on the sock.
My quilting pins are here but after choosing the backing ( recycled / thrifted duvet cover ) l have decided to add another row of blocks.
I had 4 already sewn so l have just cut out for the final block.
I might have it pinned by the weekend.
Bye for now.
