What makes a sewing project blog-worthy? I wondered whether to bother adding a little post for this at all. There's nothing noteworthy about it in a technical sense as it's as simple as sewing gets and there's no anecdote behind making it or using it. But, I love the fabric and the embroidery, so here it is!
Sewing a Zipped Pouch
Yep, it's just a basic lined zipped pouch.
The map fabric was a free sample from John Lewis over a year ago, and I came across it during a recent clear out. I thought it was a decent size for a zipped pouch that I could use in place of my wallet sometimes. I found an offcut of the yellow and white geometric fabric, from a skirt I made for Eleanor, and the zip was from my Sew Brum goodie bag.
When I sewed this, I hadn't had my Juki for very long and was itching to try out the embroidered letters. I figured the quote went with the map design:
"Not all those who wander are lost"
It may be a simple little project, but I love it. I've used it a lot too; I can fit my iPhone 6, lipstick, money and even my keys inside and it still fits into the pockets of my dresses!
