This snazzy little gift is for my cousin. I was sending her hubby something and wanted a little something for her. I had this crazy zebra faux suede and it made me think of her so I thought perfect. The pattern is the Filigree Double Zip Pouch by Sew Sweetness.
As the name implies, there are two zippers on this pouch. Each one goes to a different compartment. They are different colors so it’s easy to tell which compartment is which.
And I also made the inside fabric two different colors. Those are from two Tula Pink fabrics that I had.
The pattern itself is pretty simple and well written. All the pieces go together very nicely. Look how nice those corners are!
You may have noticed that I just recently did another Sew Sweetness pattern, the Polaris Bag. It’s really just coincidence although I am a huge fan of her bags and patterns. I’ve got both her books and found her Craftsy class very helpful.
I decided not to quilt the outside (I thought it would look bizarre with the more funky fabric), but would consider it in the future. The only thing is that the bag came out much larger than I was expecting. I mean, I supposed I should have figured how big it would be when I cut out the pieces, but it never really dawned on me . . . this size would be really good for lots of stuff or large items. I’ll let my cousin figure out that part 🙂 I would also use this pattern with just one zipper and it would be just as nice. It’s a great shape.
