Thank you for the tutorial. I love the look of those dumplings!


These are so cute! Shame I still haven't got round to doing zippers, I really must!


This is awesome!! Thank you for sharing. I am going to try even though I have never sewn a zipper before. Looking forward to using a cute little dumpling :)


Thank you for the freebie :-)

Oh wow, so exciting, have printed it off and know what I want to work on today...

Thanks for preparing and sharing this fun project!



~*thanks a bunch*~


Thanks again for a great pattern! I just finished one and added it to the flickr pool... now it's too bad I'm all out of zippers!


love this!!! would make excellent chrissy pressies!! :D thank u so much....


Super cute! Can't wait to make these!

Thanks for sharing! Super cute...but I need advice. My sewing machine won't sew across the zipper teeth. It stops as soon as the needle hits anything. Any ideas?


Thank you!

You're welcome, everyone!

Cheryl: If you want to sew a few stitches by machine on each side, and then hand sew the zip end in place, that should work out just fine. Once you bind the ends, the zipper will stay in place.

Or maybe try a zig zag across the bottom? Maybe your machine sensor won't be tripped with a zig zag stitch. Just guessing, but that might be worth a try.


Thanks for sharing! This is a lovely pattern! I prepared it already, picture in my blog:). Have a nice day!


Thank you so much! Can't wait to make one. I'll post my dumpling on flickr when it's done.


I've just made my very first one right now! :)
It's so soo cute!
I used a 18cm zipper because i dont have any bigger for now, and i found a bit difficult... but it's done! ;)
I'll take so photos and then i share the link with you :)
Thank you so much keyka! *


Thank you for the tutorial! I can't wait to give the dumplings a try!!!!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I made "the easier one" tonight! So fun!! :)


Wonderful dumpling tutorial. Cute. Thank you. I have printed it and will make one soon.


very cute! thanks for sharing the tutorial :)


So glad I found your pattern. I just bought a dumpling pouch in a gift shop to try and copy it. It is much smaller. (2"x3") I think now I start with your larger version.


Thank you so much! I just did a test run, which turned out great! Now I am off to buy zippers, so I can make more!


What a great tutorial, I can't wait to try it out!!! Thanks, Nancy
