Zip It

Ok, so I have a degree in Home Economics (though I don't think they call it that anymore), and over the years, I've made clothes for myself, my parents(!), my children. But it has been years since I've put in a zipper.

I had no idea until I started blogging that quilters are so into "zip pouches". Honestly, friends have been encouraging me along - sending me tutorial links, patterns, and zippers. I've been watching with interest the many pouches popping up on flickr and quilty blogs. They inspire me!

Soooooo, I think it's time I try one for myself. Wish me luck!
(If you have links, patterns, or photos of zip pouches that you especially enjoy, please do share!)


  1. Eeeps, my pouch made the mosaic! I think you just made my night, Debbie! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. I am certain you don't need it, but I wish you good luck anyway!

  3. Rock those zippers out! I LOVE these little pouches! I'm feeling inspired. :)

  4. I know how you feel. I have been putting off making my goodies for a swap because I freek out when I have to sew a zip.

  5. Funny I could have written that post myself! I bought two zippers today and am going to make a pouch or two. Now you've got it down - wish ME luck! :D
