XL Zippy Pouch & Sew-Stitchy Score!

Yesterday I finished this super-sized quilted linen pouch. I am so excited about it because it finally shows the boxed, flat zipper ends I have trying to achieve for my future products. It’s easy to do this technique on fabric such as this quilted cotton or even home decor if you’re careful, but ultimately I need them perfect for my leather work.  So after lots of sewing practice here is a pouch with my ideal zipper ends!!

Hey there!  Today I’m linking up with Lee from Freshly Pieced for her Wednesday WIP. With my Sugar Block Club done and my Patchwork Personal Challenge for the week done, I finally got out my baggies of Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille I cut many months ago and started sewing.
