Zig-Zags are fun funky zipper pouches and are as fun to sew as they are to use. They will definitely fascinate the young and old alike. When open they lay flat and when zipped up they create funky shapes.
These are great for kids from 3 to 99! Watch the amazement in their eyes when they zip and unzip them. Fill them with chocolates, toys, or sewing items.
They are fast and fun to make and are perfect for the confident beginner sewer. They are a great way to use up your scraps or FQ’s.
The pattern comes with 3 versions, the Car Park, the Crayon Case, and the Eyeglass Case but they can be created into anything you like! They are ideal for all sorts of storage ideas.
When you make yourself your own Zig-Zag Pouches they will measure approximately:-
- Car Park = 3″ by 5″.
- Crayon Case = 3″ by 5″.
- Eyeglass Case = 3 1/2″.
A continuous (by the yard) zipper is needed for this project. You will only be using one side of the zipper per pouch so make sure you have two zipper pulls that fit the zipper. With one 34-36” length of zipper, you can make two pouches.
What you will need to make Zig-Zag Pouches:-
- 8″ by 12″ scraps for the exterior fabric,
- 8″ by 12″ scraps for the lining fabric,
- 8″ by 12″ scraps for the foam stabilizer (Soft & Stable) or fusible batting,
- 34 – 36″ #5 continuous zipper and one zipper pull per pouch ( #3 zippers can also be used),
- 1/2″ ribbon clamps,
- 4″ ribbon trim,
- 3/” Elastic for the crayon pouch.
