I never had a chance to blog about it in December, but for Christmas, I made my mother-in-law a zipper pouch using Pink Stitches' excellent tutorial.
I've made a few zippered things recently, and I've enjoyed tackling my fear of sewing zippers (turns out it's not so bad).
The green stripe and lining are Lizzy House's Jewels, and the raindrop fabric is from Erin McMorris's Summersault line (which I bought way back here).
P.S. Here's my other recent attempt at sewing with a zipper: leather and canvas foldover clutch.
