Here's my finish for the day...a zipper pouch with a zip pull and a beautiful flat bottom base!
This pouch started out as Size 4 from the Intro to Improv Zip Pouches pattern, but I've messed up trying to make this flat bottom a number of times, and this was another time it just didn't work out. In order to salvage the work I'd already done, some trimming had to happen. So here we are with a shorter pouch.
The good news is I figured out where I was going wrong, and stopped trying to make it happen like I was trying to make it happen because it's not going to happen!
Besides being a flat base, this bottom will hide any seam matching issues, and you can make it in a contrast fabric, which can be a cute detail.
I'm working on instructions for adding this type of bottom to any box bottom pouch or bag, and hope to have them done next week because you are going to want to put this bottom on all your box bottom pouches and bags!
