Mojo Returns With Small Pieces

I received a few pieces of the most adorable scraps of fabric from my good sewing friend Cindy when we were lucky enough to meet in person at our retreat last summer.

I didn’t have much in each print so I didn’t really want to cut them up into smaller pieces only to figure out how to piece them back together into another combination.

Hence, these adorable zipper pouches, which are perfect for a small moleskin and drawing tools, or other goodies I like to hide in my zipper pouches (headphones, power cord for my phone in case the battery gets low while I’m away from home, external hard drive with my homework projects on it).

For the grey pouch with the bicycle print, I used a 9-inch zipper, so that one measures about 9 inches wide by 6 inches tall. For the minty green pouch with the mushroom print, I used a 7-inch zipper, so that one measures about 7 inches wide by 5.5 inches tall.

I ended up using different prints for the backs, and now I’m in love with that look.

Since I’m a little short on sewing time these days, these zipper pouches were just the ticket to bring back my creative mojo. Now I’ve got all sorts of new ideas swirling around on things I want to make. I love it when that happens.

  1. Cute! Ooh, I can’t wait to see what is swirling around in your head!
    P.S. I just read the comment you left on Doris’s blog about stash, and how some people have stashes so big they couldn’t use it all in two lifetimes. Um….do you have a secret spy camera in my house?? 🙂

  2. They look so beautiful! I should make few pouches for myself but didn’t have enough interest yet! Thank you for inspiration!

  3. Hi Terri! Hope you are having a great day! and yes, it feels good to get your creative flow going again. I need a little inspiration to get my going, stalled a bit in that department!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  4. I like that you used different fabrics for fronts, backs and liners – that way you get to see all of your favourites in one pouch… and I agree with Vicki, you are the queen of zippered pouches! Such adorable fabric, expertly sewn into adorable accessories. Small projects are great to get mojo going again 🙂
