I have been working on this bag for weeks. And I mean weeks! Nothing about it went smoothly and to be honest I'm extremely impressed I even finished it. I finally got it done yesterday and I didn't even want to look at it at first. I was so frustrated with all time it took and the ridiculous amounts of times I had to use my seam ripper, that I just didn't like it. This morning I looked at it again and had to admit it actually was kind of cute. You can get the tutorial at My Spare Time. I'm a huge fan of her blog but I really struggled with the tutorial, not sure why. Probably just me but I'll warn you, I didn't find the bag very easy to make at all.
Today I decided to try my hand at my very first zipper pouch. It was so fun! Seriously, I could probably sew these all day long. The first one I didn't get the zipper very good at all, but then again I've never done a zipper before so oh well! The second one went a lot better and I decided to add a little tag, which I put in upside down so I had to fix that. The third one turned out perfect. No problems at all and I LOVE it.
Zipper pouch attempt #1... I love it except the zipper is a little too exposed for my liking. I used fabric paint and a stamp to do the dandelion.
Zipper Pouch #2
And zipper pouch #3... nearly perfect!
