{TUTORIAL} Adding Zipper Pocket

Hello,
The last two days was euphoria for me. It's the first time I got published in an online media and that too on Ecwid Blog! I was contacted by them by email early this month and was so excited about it. You can read my Behind the Scene Story in Ecwid Blog. I hope I can inspire more mothers who decided to left 9 to 5 job and pursue her dreams.

Now let's get down to the fun stuff. I got email from Patti, asking about how to add zipper pocket on the Phone Pouch. Thank you so much Patti!! Adding zipper pouch is very easy. If you already got the pattern  here is what you have to do. (if you haven't,  you can get it at the end of this post)

After you cut all your Exterior, Lining and Interfacing pieces as per pattern instructions, cut 2 extra lining pieces of Main Panel.

1. Fuse the interfacing on to the wrong side of the back exterior piece. Mark 1.5" down on one of the short end and cut.

Do the same with one of the lining piece.

2. Put the lining and exterior pieces…

Say it through your wallet...

a handmade fabric wallet that is ^v^
I have this cute fabric lying in my cupboard for over a year now. I bought it through a friend who lives in the US of A. We have this chat group on Whatsapp where we shares ideas, jokes and our fabric loot. But the shipping from US is killing me, but then there's nothing like a good investment (said a fabric hoaders of course). Ha!
Anyway, I bought few pattern of wallet and reading numerous blog post and finally settle for this simple wallet. I wanted something sturdy but light, compact, fit in my notes and few coins. And which will fit in into my purse. 

Hmm...I'm using my old leather wallet as a benchmark for sizing. I made a little bigger and wider version, since Indian currency notes are quite long.
look at the outer fabric! I love love it!
I used two grommets snap buttons. Psst, it's not that hard to attach these buttons. 

Since I don't like to waste fabric, I make wrist strap from the remaining binding fabric. 
Well, I still …

Lots of pleated purse

The last one week I've been making these pretty pleated purses



They are wide open and roomy purses. You can carry a lot of things in it. Including your mini I-Pad or Tablet.

the pleats are in coordinated but contrast colors. It's so much fun to carry around.

it's also a perfect gift for bridesmaids

Until then...
Happy Sewing
