April 16 Meeting Reminder

This month we will be having a zipper pouch tutorial by me, Ashley Gomez!

If you'd like to pre cut your fabrics before the meeting, this will save a lot of time.  I'll be teaching you a really simple zipper pouch tutorial to make a basic zipper pouch. You can use the skills you'll learn here to make a variety of sized pouches for all sorts of needs.  I'll show you how to make a regular zipper pouch as well as a flat bottomed, "boxy" zipper pouch.  I'll be using the piece I made with Marcia's QAYG class in March to make my zipper pouch, if you'd like to do this as well, feel free!  If you're going to make both zipper pouches, please double your materials list!

Also, don't forget to bring some show and tell if you have something you'd like to share!

Materials list:

A zipper (Two if you want to make the two types I'll be showing you) - I'll be using a 10 inch zipper, feel free to use what size zipper you'd like your pouch to be

Outside fabric - Since my zipper is 10 inches, my fabric will be 12 x 6 inches.

Inside fabric - the same size as my outside fabric

Tab pieces - two pieces of fabric measuring 2 x 1 inches, one set for each pouch.

Scrap batting, fleece, etc - this gives your pouch a little body, feel free to use whatever type of interfacing you prefer.

Pins

Sewing machine, zipper foot, quarter inch foot, seam ripper, (thread!) and scissors, fabric and non fabric.

A pointed flip tool - something like a chopstick, a "that purple thang", a pencil, just something to help you poke out corners.

*Optional* some ribbon for a tab, dongle, key chain spot.
