Zippered Storage Pouch (Part 1 of 2)
Zippers can seem so intimidating until you’ve actually inserted one into a project. Here we have a very simple project to get you using your zipper foot on your machine, and testing the waters with an actual zipper. What’s the worst that can happen?

- A Fat Quarter
- Zipper foot for your machine
- Dry Iron
You will also need to understand zipper terminology. Here are the basics:
Please watch the video, and sew along with us:
Remember – The seam ripper is a sewer’s best friend. If you make a mistake, just remove the stitches and start over with your newly acquired knowledge of what not to do. Trial and error can be the best teacher if you are open and willing to learn from your mistakes. (Yes, that’s experience talking. Boy, have I made a lot of mistakes!)
I use my pouch to contain all of the various sewing machine needles that I have, but it could be used for just about anything! It could be a pacifier or dirty bib pouch, travel bag, a make-up/cosmetic bag, a manicure/pedicure bag, a bobbin bag, a notions bag, a jewelry pouch, a momma pad pouch for your purse, and more! So, what will you use your storage pouch for?
Join us again next week for Part 2 of the Zippered Storage Pouch where we finish the project!
