Last week I started two pouches for LeChallenge theme Reading. I thought some newspaper print would be suitable but I finished them yesterday. Only 5 days past due :)
I wanted to try new type of pouch. Inspired by @elnorac and her #jellyfreedomzipperpouchtutorial I prepared two rectangles. For some reason I like to make 2 at the time which was really handy this time around. The above pic shows that I do not measure much.
You get a second chance on making it right though. See I marked the middle on the second one! While making it I realized I don't really like to bind around a pouch and I prefer boxed corners so I changed things up. I actually didn't have #jellyfreedomzipper but I used regular endless zipper. When you open it you have 2 sets for 2 pouches. Perfect!
I really like the look the loop creates. Only the zipper ends are a bit twisted. I do have some plans on exploring this type of pouch but no idea when.
Here is closeup of the zipper beginning and boxed corner. No seam at that part. It's made out of 1 rectangle.
When I choose lining it must match in some way. This time I matched with the hot pink zipper in case you are wondering, lol.
