Polka Dots Boxy Pouch

I was telling KS that I am starting to appreciate every stitch on my clothes eversince I started sewing. I never knew it was that tough to sew a zipper. I found this tutorial some months ago and have been wanting to try.

After sewing the Snoopy Handphone Pouch, I quickly embarked on my 3rd project. The first step was to cut the fabric according to the dimensions in the tutorial. I realised that the easiest way to cut a straight piec
e of cloth is to fold them and then snip it. Learn from the experts - that's the way all the fabric shops cut the fabric.

The first sewing for this pouch was to do the zipper which requires a different sewing machine foot - one that's used for zipper. It took a few experimenting with pins and a YouTube video to finally pin the zipper correctly, ready for sewing.

I didn't know it was so challenging to sew a straight line following the "teeth" of the zipper. It took me at least 5 times of unpicking to get it somehow right but not perfect.

Here's the finished product:

I tot this is very well done for your 1st zipper challenge ! The cloth was sewn very near to the zip, so the zip's very well hidden.. great job babe ! ^_^
