Zippered Storage Pouch (Part 2 of 2)

Zippered Storage Pouch

Here it is! Part 2 of 2. Last week we saw how to insert a centered, lapped zipper as we began to make a simple storage pouch. This week, we’re finishing the project and including gussets to the pouch for added depth and more usable storage space.

Gussets are actually just simple triangles sewn into a project to add room. They are somewhat difficult to explain in words, but simple to demonstrate and accomplish. Please watch the video and sew along with us!

This is an intermediate level DVD sewing course which serves as a great follow-up to the primer, “You CAN Sew.” In this one-semester course, we will be sharing a broad spectrum of techniques in order to give you a strong foundation of knowledge from which you can choose to more tenaciously develop one method or another through practice. The included book will become your favorite quilting companion book with an extensive glossary and a user-friendly format encouraging you to record your journey. This not only solidifies the learning, but it allows for time and space to reflect on individual skills learned along the way. This book will become a scrapbook, portfolio, and future reference guide that you won’t want to lose.
