zip pouches hipster style

by Nova on July 27, 2013

see a theme emerging…?

I’ve been loving the distraction of playing with Shannon’s Hipster line of fabric this week.

As well as the scarves, I made a couple of zip bags  (large size style C from pattern) – big enough for a portable crafty project or sock knitting , or just for popping all that stuff in that floats around the bottom of your bag. Super handy around the sewing space or home  to store knick knacks in – a girl can never have too many storage solutions I say.

I teamed the cross stitch print with some coral linen left over from this dress & I couldn’t resist the addition of some little x’s

the tag on the side is the selvedge from the fabric, pretty cute huh? & the zip pull handle thingamy bob is a scrap of moda crossweave in blue/ blue colourway.

The knit fabric went perfectly with a Kona cotton in ‘Aloe’ that  I had lurking in the stash & a row of chain stitch in wooly yarn  of course!

The zip pull handle is the tape measure fabric from the Hipster line.
