When I shared A Simple Little Pouch earlier in the week, I said I'd be making more, and I did. Three total for my quilting buddies I'm on retreat with this weekend. Each with different fabrics personalized for the recipients yet all with the same contrasting fabric strips along the zippers, just in different colors. I also quilted each one differently, just for the fun of it.
I'll report back about my idea to glue-baste the contrasting strip when top-stitching it to the front of the pouch. That worked like a charm. I glued, then pressed, so no pins were needed for that step.
Once finished, I put a few sewing notions in each, which my buddies should enjoy. OK, back to that retreat sewing!
