I spent of my sewing time making gifts for all my fabulous classroom volunteers and grade level co-workers. I used the Open Wide Zippered Pouch tutorial found on Noodlehead. Once I got started, it was easy to keep going.
I made 27 pouches in several sizes: 9", 12" and 14".
I tried several different interfacings. I used Pellon 809 Decor Bond, Pellon 808 Craft Fuse and when I ran out of those I used Pellon 911FF. I found the first two really helped give shape to the bags.
I rushed to get these photos, I was packaging the gifts - oops, forgot to pick off the stray thread!
Inside, I sewed my label.
And now......... I need to make one for me!
