{TUTORIAL} Adding Zipper Pocket

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…

FMQ is always a challenge to me. I never get it right no matter how much free tutorial I read/saw on the web. That's how I decided to these 2 kindle books. I find reading books give  more detail information and if I forget something I can easily go back to it :)
First book I bought was Free-Motion Quilting for Beginners: And Those Who Think They Can't by Molly Hanson The book is quite informative with picture guidance and also easy small projects for beginners.

The second one is First Steps of Free Motion quilting by Christina Cameli

This book  is more thorough in a sense that it gives more detail illustration on fmq design, how to set your machine even if your machine does't have option to drop your feed dogs, etc.  She gives few samples of design for you to practice doodling in your pad. 
After reading the two books, I immediately got down to work. I took a blank paper and start practice doodling for few mins and then took out my scraps and started the real work ^___^

This grey cat in the road block *as my son named it* is done at 40x40" and I am still wondering how to quilt it. Maybe a dense straight line or wonky line or using my fave serpentine stitch

doing the top is my fave part of quilting
I used my own pattern for this using excel sheet -___- The trial block was not as how I pictured it in my head so I made it into cushion cover for a swap
and after alteration I'm happy with this one. Here's the detail picture of the block

Second quilt top is this trip around the world.  I love TATW block! and one if my IG friend, Laurie Meyers, she made beautiful TATW quilt which really inspire me!
