I did zippers!!!

For some reason zippers have always intimidated me, so long ago I became a velcro girl. But after seeing the Little Cutie Pouches and the tutorial to make them on Noodlehead, I gathered up my courage and gave it a try.

Well, the first one I made was the bigger one. My practice pouch. It went well, but I misunderstood the directions when sewing the perimeter and did it wrong, so I just had to blanket stitch the bottom closed. Plus, I made the key ring holder a bit too long. But the next 2 I did correctly. And they are really cute!!!!

Maybe I will get adventurous and try a zipper on a larger bag.

I've not yet dared to do zippers, even though I have some stored up, just in case I ever try. Your bags turned out GREAT!
