Thanks to the heads up from Erin I learned about and joined the Triple Zip Pouch Swap being hosted by Stephanie at Quarter Incher. Having never created a triple zip pouch before I wanted to do a test run before committing to final fabrics for my partner. It is probably no surprise to anyone who follows this blog that I chose Anna Maria Horner fabrics! However, I will probably never choose a stripe for something like this again, getting that straight was a pain in the arse but I whooped it into shape in the end!
I knew I wanted to continue something onto the back so I decided to continue the front/top zip fabric by sewing the massive selvage (seriously, for selvage standards this was pretty large) onto the back. I love how it gives a bit of an elegant finish to the top!
I would never have bothered to learn how to make a triple zip pouch without this swap as motivation. I am psyched to have joined!
