A colleague of mine celebrated her 19th birthday today and I wanted to make her something special. She is a real sweetie and very girly, so it had to be feminine. Lord knows I have enough denim creations to stock a shop, but unless I took them all into work for her to try on, we’d have no idea what she liked/or not! Ergo, I decided to make her a zippered pouch/bag. She told me that it had to be summery… and I really didn’t “have to”!!
I know that, but I wanted to try out a new tutorial I saw recently and use up some fabric (yes, and some more denim!!), and this was the perfect excuse. Well, the tutorial really is “idiot-proof”. I have always had an aversion to inserting zips, and this baby is also lined… Here’s the back:
Isn’t that cute? And so functional. By the end of our shift yesterday, she had decided that she is going to keep her phone and her Ipod in it! Cool! 😉
Many thanks to Kate…. of See Kate Sew blog.
EDIT: I just have to add another pic of a zippered bag I made myself last night, to take to work instead of my huge handbag!! Despite an error along the bottom, it still turned out great! 🙂
