Remember a few weeks ago my pouch making attempt? Well figured it would not do my any harm to try again (mantra: practice makes perfect). I was gifted some unusal handmade printed linen fabric which I altered with neon paints.
Managed to make the same mistake as the first one...not catching the zipper between the outer and inner fabrics. This time at least it was only on one side.
Since this was a small pouch (zip only 7 inches) I did not redo.
Next I tried another pouch version with a longer zip (14") and a more open closure (???).
One might ask: "Why did she use that fabric for the lining?" (Well, that would be rude.) But that's what I had that was right amount.
I made the exact same error but this time I used the ever present seam ripper and amended my error. It helped that I hadn't completed the sewing before noticing the mistake!
I put everything away and decided that maybe sewing pouches just isn't my thing but really one pouch out of three ain't too bad!
