I bought zippers on Monday. At 9:30 Friday night, I pulled out my zippers and fabric and got started. Less than two hours later, I'm happy to say I was done!
I was having serious fabric envy looking at everyone else's, and just couldn't decide on what to use. I ultimately decided to make the pouch for my older son, who turns 4 next weekend. He loves tools (hence the fabric choices) and he really loves stashing "treasures." Well, now he'll have another treasure pouch. I think he'll be thrilled! The other benefit of making one for him first is that I got to practice on it. I will likely make another (or another few!) and I think each one will only improve. Plus, I'd like to make it larger, and have more of the top two fabrics showing.
Here you can sort of see my three different lining fabrics.
Blue for the largest pocket
Lime for the middle pocket
Red for the smallest pocket
I love having 3 different color zippers!
Even though the contest is over, if you haven't tried this tutorial yet, you should! There's also an alternate finishing technique here, which is helpful.
And make sure to check out all the beautiful versions over on Flickr.
