More times than not, I find it is easier to make more than one at a time! And making open mouth zippered pouches is no exception. First, I cut all the fabric and fusible for these four pouches. Then, I selected the zippers and pinned the layers and started sewing, chain style.....that means I didn't break the thread between each pouch, I just grabbed the second pouch, then the third and fourth until the first set of stitching was done. Went to the pressing board, pressed one, two, three, four and started with Step No. 2 and the chaining began all over again. I chained and chained until all four were completed. Whew! I've been working on a chain: Gang!
Pouch No. 4....same exterior fabric, different lining and zipper. These bags are so whimsical, the zipper color really doesn't matter. I just went with what was on hand. And with this zipper installation, if one is too long, the zipper can be trimmed to size. The tab on the end keeps everything connected.
It's a feel-good feeling when I have something ready for the next quilt guild fund raiser.
The Dubach Chicken Festival will be here before we know it and
the Piney Hills Quilt Guild (Ruston, Louisiana) always has a booth filled with handmade articles.
