Well, I'm back to sewing and I'm trying to perfect my zippered pouch pattern. My first attempt ended up as a mangled mess and into the garbage it went. Try number 2 turned out much better, don't you think? It's even lined:
And I used some interfacing since the cotton fabric is very flimsy by itself. That part of the process went very well. The zipper is fully functional and looks pretty good from the outside, but the lining is a little wonky. Not sure what I need to do to fix this in the future. Any good books on the subject? Let me know!
