After over two weeks of being unable to sit at my sewing machine because of a bad back I have been desperate to get sewing. It doesn’t help that I don’t really have much storage for my fabric so it sits in clear plastic boxes in the front room taunting me.
Today I decided to tackle my sewing nemesis, the zip. I wanted a project that was relatively quick, so that I wasn’t sat down too long. It was time to try and make a zip pouch.
I have had the Open Wide Zippered Pouch by Noodlehead pinned for as long as I have been on Pinterest so it was time to have a go. I had tried once before and failed at the first hurdle. But reading it back this morning it all seemed pretty straight forward so I just went for it. It was brilliant!
I made the first one with no problems. Initially these two were meant to be a present for my Dad, to keep his art supplies in, but as soon as I finished the first one I wanted it for myself! I made the second one for him (with the boats) and I have decided to make two more, but using the two other size options in this post so he has a set. I have even ordered more zips.
Take that zips. I faced my fear and I have prevailed!
Do you have a sewing nemesis?
