Medium Zip Pocket Pouch
This has been cut out for a few days and this morning I finished it up.
I like to cut things out and then take a break. Sometimes it's a few hours of doing something else, a few days, a few weeks, or even sometimes years. Stepping away helps me not feel like I HAVE to get this done RIGHT NOW and the process of making things feels more relaxed and pleasant.
This pouch is the medium size from the Zip Pocket Pouches pattern.
I forgot how easy it is to sew the zipper in this pattern. Makes me want to make a bunch more.
The small closure flap was left off because I cut it out and then discovered the fabric had a small hole where the flap would need to bend. Then there wasn't enough fabric left for cutting another flap, so I left it off.
Since the pouch part hadn't been basted in place (6.c) yet, I went ahead and put in some magnetic snaps.
The lining pieces are all different fabrics. I didn't have enough of any one fabric to cut them all. This is another fantastic way to use up scraps and add a patchwork effect.
That's my passport inside. The medium size is good for passports, Moleskine Pocket Cahier journals, many different phones, or a combination of those things.
I also padded the back with Quilters Dream "Request" cotton batting and a piece of light weight scrap fabric. If you use batting or fleece, remember to cut away that little piece along the sides (it's in the instructions). It will help make it easier to sew.
