This comes from the Zakka style book, but this time I took fewer liberties with the pattern.
Yes, I did sew the binding onto the outer before I sewed on the zip, which definitely made life easier.
Another time? I would insert the zip pocket before cutting the outer to size, as it was just a scrap tight, so came out overall a little smaller than it would have done.
I love that the whole thing opens out flat,
And did you see these wee cuties? On the zip pull?
Dead simple to make- a bit fiddly, but not difficult. A pin from pinterest gave the instructions, but lots of pictures made it simple to follow.
I am planning a couple more of these, but will need to go and get longer zips than those I have currently in stash. Who has a zip stash?? Me, I am afraid. Guilty. I hate being stymied in a project because I need a different zip!
And then I spent a bit of time this morning, dressing a wee bear.
This chap came with a new car. But he was all naked except for a bow. He told me he did not wish to remain bare, as well as bear... so could he please have a waistcoat?
And here it is.
Isn't he a happy chappie now? I hope he does not also now demand trousers.
