Lireca, a wonderful shop on Etsy. She obviously mastered the zipper long ago. Until now that darn zipper closure has been my nemesis. I've tried many times and have never been happy with the results. I finally found a tutorial on YouTube and she actually numbered all her segments. It was so easy to follow..I love YouTube for tutorials. That's how I taught myself to knit..cool! So after a few episodes of Little House On the Prairie (Mary went blind..again!) I had myself a zippered pouch.
I have also been working on developing a few patterns for some small folded pouches. I'm looking for ways to use all my lovely quilting cottons (I don't quilt...sorry Kelly Ann). I think these are looking very pretty. They are the size of a eyeglass case and can be used in lots of ways.
I had a lot of fun adding my signature (that sounds so pompous) embellishments. My sewing machine will sew dozens of fancy stitches and I had fun trying some of them out. Of course my vintage chenille and laces came out to play also.
Until next time..be kind and stay creative. A special thank you to all of you who have embraced my Pieday blogs..your kind comments mean so much to me. Be sure to come by next Friday for a classic, lattice topped beauty!
