Charity Sewing

The charity that I donate items to (Hooking for the Homeless) has put out the call for zippered accessory pouches.

The book, School of Sewing, has a zippered pouch pattern that utilizes fat quarters.

This was the first project I used my zipper foot on.

I need practice with that, I broke a needle **insert sad face here**

I did much better on the second pouch using the regular foot.

I also used stash interfacing which was a little too stiff (not sure what weight it was as I no longer have the label).


For the purple polka dot pouch I did box corners so it does stand up.

(No matter how much I press the polka dot one, the wrinkles remain)

This was a good learning project and I plan on making three more (with light interfacing to make them more malleable).

Have a great weekend!

    Good for you and I really want to get that book! You’re doing so wellI’m thinking maybe I need some instruction. It’s the interfacing that causes those wrinkles…I had the same problem…drat!
    Good for you getting more practice and donating to a worthy cause. I love the materials you chose. Have a nice weekend!

    Good job. Did you interface the cotton? I use 950F ShirTaylor. Next time I may try fusible fleece. I tried out zipper tabs for the first time! Unfortunately I can’t show them yet because the advent gift opening doesn’t start until December.
