I'm learning something new!

...How to sew zippers.
I have been so afraid to sew zippers, but it helps with great tutorials and to read the manual of the sewing-machine...;-)
This little pouch is a free tutorial over at Noodlehead, and it is soooo great! I loved it at the moment I saw it, and knew that I had to make it right away. I made my own twist on it, by adding the ric rac and the buttons.

Here is a shoot of the inside of the pouch, with a divider pocket and room for two credit-cards/drivers licence etc.

The other pouch is from a tutorial over at Timotei, she makes such lovely little pouches and other stuff... Love her blog! And she has explained in an easy way how to sew zippers.
This bag is not perfect, the zipper got a little crooked, but I think I can do better with some practice. At least I gave it a try, and found out that it's not so scary after all!
The pouch is small, I am making two of them, and both are from one fat quarter.

Now I need to get back to my sewing machine! I have some finishes that has to be done by tomorrow.

See you later!
