…and just like that, school’s out for the summer.
As a thank you for my children’s teachers, I sewed them each a denim zipper pouch. You can never have too many zipper pouches, am I right?
The key to make this bulk sewing project fun was to turn the collection of bags into the project, instead of multiple individual projects. I used a rainbow zippers, matched them to rainbow lining fabrics, and then assembly lined them together in rainbow order. I wasn’t just sewing lots of bags, I was sewing a rainbow of bags. Rainbowtized is better. always.
Directions for the zipper pouch came from the book “School of Sewing” by Shea Henderson. I have been guiding a group of friends through this fabulous book of projects, and I will be writing a review of the book and our experience with it sometime in the near future. In a nutshell, the review will say something like “THIS BOOK AND TEACHING MY FRIENDS TO SEW IS THE BEST EVER!”.
