I completed my first project downstairs in my “new” sewing room yesterday –
I’m trying to create? recreate? a zipper pouch for a friend to carry essential oils in. I really like how this turned out but it was super hard to get through my machine. I did have 4 layers though – 2 of the purple fabric and two lining – per side! I think I will redo the design and use fusible fleece to line it instead and leave a one inch border around the lining – that should make it easier to sew.
I also need to figure out how to put a divider through the center so there are two sides to the pouch. I think it’s totally workable and now that I have a sewing area I don’t mind being in – I’ll be able to tackle the challenge!
