i love the idea of making little zipped pouches...i've crawled t'internet for various tutes and advice and i really thought i'd got it sorted in my head. so after printing my 'totem' fabric on saturday, i proceeded to make one. (top pic) while it's not a total disaster, i didn't get that joyful feeling i should have had when i finished it. i really hate how the zip looks crappy on the edges, it drives me bonkers. am i just being fussy? i thought about it alot over sunday, and wondered if the solution lay in adding little fabric tabs the the ends of the zip before sewing it together, which would mean no tricky zip jiggery-pokery when stitching up the sides. i've just finished making a new pouch (bottom pic) and while it's better, it's still not perfect. i think i'm going to give up.
