Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial.
Today's feature is something I wish I could duplicate but I have absolutely no idea how to sew a zipper on (I've come to terms with the fact that I'm officially hopeless with learning new things on a sewing machine unless a human being physically shows me how in person - no book learning for me.) Maybe because I know I can't do it the allure of making my own pencil case/makeupcase/ zippered pouch is so much more appealing? No matter because I have to show you anyway.
The above version is adorable overload from Spoonflower. The cat is probably not appropriate for my 35 year old self but that wouldn't stop me. Also loving this typewriter version via Dining Room Drawers.
Too kitch for you? How about something more literal like this art supply pouch via chezbepperbebe
I could probably list another 20 examples but I'll stop myself. Must learn how to sew on zippers!
Have you made your own zippered pouch? I want to see.
Do you know how to sew a zipper? What are you waiting for? Get to pouch making, damnit!
postscript: *When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!
**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!
