Whilst finding myself between projects I decided to turn my attention to something I've wanted to tackle for oh such a long time - the dreaded zipper. This one's been on the to-do list for so many months I decided it was high time to spring into action and just go for it.
I didn't want to use one of my special fabrics but at the same time didn't want to use anything I wouldn't put to future use. So out came this cute chocolate brown Japanese fabric, together with some remnants from the very first blouse I made which I thought would be good as a lining. The zip is a lovely slate grey/blue colour which coordinates quite nicely I think.
For a first attempt I wanted to do something straightforward, no embellishment. Just in case. And for what turned out to be a surprisingly quick project, I'm left with a sweet pouch large enough to fit pens and pencils or small enough to keep make-up neatly in my handbag.
And, as is usually the case, mountains and mole hills spring to mind. Believe me, this tutorial nailed it in one!
Now, anyone for tea?
