Last weekend I had the privilege to teach 6 ladies how to paper piece and turn their project into a zipper pouch. Knowing what I know now, that is very ambitious!
I had precut all the ladies would need: strips of fabric, batting, and interior fabrics.
The puzzles of all the pieces for he pattern took a while to form!
The pattern of the bow is one of my own. It is called “Take a Bow -D” and is now on SALE on Craftsy.
We turned the paper pieced square into a rectangle by adding strips to the left and right sides. Added batting and turned it into zipper pouches!
It took a while but we all got there! At the end of the class there were 6 beautiful pouches! As they were all the same, I will only show you my version of the pouch.
We added a charm as a zipper pull. Some chose the bow charm, others the scissors!
I have never had such a interesting group of ladies in my workshop! They worked very hard to finish their project!
( Thank you ladies for letting me teach you! )
