The Flickr Super Swap that I made a zipper pouch for has ended. My package has been well received by my swap partner. I anxiously await the arrival of my surprise and will share it with you when it arrives. In the meantime, I have had zipper pouches on the brain. I still had denim on my cutting table from lining the bag I sent my partner. I decided to use it as a base for an appliqued pouch for myself.
I used a loose weave fabric for the sewing machine body. Over time, the edges will fray for a raw edge finish. For the machine knobs, I used orphaned buttons from my stash for that old time feel.
Embroidery floss was used to stitch the threads and a stitch length dial. To complete the look, I added a scrap of Joel Dewberry fabric as the current work in progress.
The pouch is just large enough to hold everything I need for on the go sewing.
