A big thanks to a Quilter’s Table for this kick ass tutorial. Seriously. I have no idea how she figured this out. It’s mind boggling how it’s built until you hit that “a-ha!” moment. Then it all makes sense. I did get a little stuck at the end but Marci Girl Designs has great pics for the last step and shows you how to make it all work.
Can you see the little bead on the top zipper? My past interest in jewelry is working out for zipper pulls!
The interior pockets play fabric peek-a-boo. That’s what makes this design so much fun to me. There is a Triple Zip Along group over at Flickr that shows a great variety of fabric combinations.
Last Saturday I received some fabric in the mail (happy, happy, joy, joy) and was literally sewing within minutes. I had this tutorial bookmarked for a little while and was just waiting for the right fabric combo. Good thing my zipper order arrived last week as well! Zipit has lightning fast shipping and a great assortment of zipper colors.
I love how you cut all all these different size squares and end up with a great little pouch. It’s also lined with fusible fleece so the pouch is not flimsy and has a quilted feel to it.
The Echino deer and dots fabric is one of my favorite prints ever. Although, I probably say that a few times a week about different prints.
If you’ve been on the fence about making this pattern or haven’t seen it yet – give it a go! It comes together quickly and I’ll definitely make another.
