Triple Salute to AMH

triple zip front #amh
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!

It is fantastic. Swaps have also stretched me into learning something new...
