New Zipper Pouches In The Shop!

My internet was down yesterday so I had time to make two new zipper pouches. Both pouches feature lovely bird prints by Valori Wells. I am really happy with how cute they turned out!
The interior of the Bird in Twig zipper pouch is lined with one of my recently acquired vintage fabrics - adorable vintage black dots on pink. It's such a versatile print! I even went to the extra effort of making three pockets for cards and other knick knacks!
The Bird in Rose zipper pouch has a pretty light blue Valori Wells print inside. It has one large pocket that a card can fit neatly into.I learned a lot from making the first batch of pouches, so I used iron-on interfacing this time for the outside lining so that it is more sturdy and doesn't wrinkle as easily.
I also sewed a thin layer of padding onto the inside lining so that it is less thin and flimsy overall. I used micro fleece for that as an experiment and it worked out very nicely because it is not bulky at all. If I didn't tell you there was padding in the pouch, you probably wouldn't really notice it.

All in all, a nice set of pouches. You can find them in my store. Don't forget to use the coupon code BLOG10 in order to take advantage of 10% off until the end of December.

I have some other fun experiments coming soon, including a new tutorial.

Have a great weekend!
