2018 Wk 47 Zips and Pouches

I've started using my delicious zip delivery (see, husband, I did NEED them!!!)

I've been cutting up and bordering some of the projects we have worked on at Chertsey Museum . . . in order to make zippy pouches as Christmas pressies for the ladies who attend and the Museum ladies.

That totals quite a few - as many as 14 in the class, and 4 staff.  I have used recycled denim for the main part of the pouch and fabric from a gifted pack as the linings

Quite a lots of lovely zips!!!!

 A variety of decorations! (and a reduction of part completed stash!)

Bottom right was made from a sample embroidery for a friend's granddaughter who loves that girly mouse!  I made the sample to check the designs stitched out ok, and didn't want to waste it

Even if I was a bit fed up with it by the time I'd done babygros (onesies) and muslins


  1. Those zips are sooo pretty. Zippy pouches are brilliant and a fab way to use up some stash

  2. Don’t those zips look pretty! Oh wow! Great way to use the woven ribbons! Love the lining fabric too. In fact your pouches are totally lovely!
    Great job on the embroidery. I’m sure that’ll make one happy mum!
