Blog / zipper pouch
Welcome to my stop on the Ribbon Blog Tour, a celebration of Bonnie Christine's line of woven ribbons for Renaissance Ribbons!
Salty Oat, a quilt studio and online fabric shop.
Bonnie's ribbons, like her fabrics, are colorful and bright, and inspired by nature. As a quilter, I tend not to work with ribbons very often, so I was...
1. Kate's step-by-step tutorial for how to screenprint on fabric at home is super thorough.
2. Great way to use a fat quarter: Anna's invisible zipper pillows made from gorgeous Skinny Laminx fabrics.
3. Love this interview with Australian fabric designer Leslie of Maze and Vale. (Update: It looks like the interview is no longer available on the Handmaker's Factory website!)
4. Two projects featuring Umbrella Prints Trimmings Packs (there are still a few left in the shop!): wide-mouth zipper pouch by Anna and a gorgeous wall quilt by Ashley.

After sending off my set of coasters to my swap partner Erica, I received the most amazing gift from my swap partner Alyssa, who blogs over at Pile O' Fabric. Using fabrics from some of my favorite designers, Leah Duncan and Lotta Jansdotter, Alyssa created a wall quilt featuring a cross-stitch heart, based on the original Salty Oat logo.
Isn't it amazing!? She hand-quilted the entire thing and then hand-stitched the Salty Oat logo in the bottom right corner of the quilt.
Also in the package were two wide-mouth zipper pouches (made from Anna's tutorial, which I've been meaning to try out myself) featuring more of Leah's fabric and linen. They arrived just in time for my trip to Houston and were perfect for holding travel essentials and Quilt Market goodies.
Alyssa put together a great tutorial for the cross-stitch quilt block, if you're interested in making your own.
Thank you, Alyssa!
