Good to go
I precut this pouch last weekend as I wanted to make a gift for my daughter's friend. She was invited to her Bday party but I didn't feel like rushing with it so I gave her some previously made bag instead. Anyway it is good to have something like this on hand. Just in case.
The back is fairly simple. Just a few lines to keep batting in place. I used once again the open wide zippered pouch tutorial. It opens up really wide. It can even swallow a whale!
Isn't that just a cute panel? My next pouch is the easiest you can make. It is kind of pocket upgraded by handle and simple embellishment.
The zipper is added the same way as open wide zippered pouch. Sew easy! I use scrap of batting for the top and nothing for the lining part. Once ready to turn over I cut exceeding batting off. I also cut off the batting on each side prior sewing the zipper in to reduce bulk in that area.
Voila! Cute little pouch is done.
I like to use fancy stitches my machine offers. Two wavy lines seem just right for this one.
Peak of fun and bright lining.
I took many pictures while making these handles and I will publish tutorial hopefully tomorrow.
*UPDATE: Tutorial can be found HERE.
I'm keeping the linen version I made last week but these two are good to go.
