Shop Talk: Sweet Tart Zippered Pouch
by Tammy Olson
Welcome back to Shop Talk here at The Featherweight Shop! We love our local chit chat with staff, gathering around the dinette table so-to-speak (because that is what we have!) and sharing with one another. In these segments, we exchange patterns, recipes, organizational ideas, history quips, crafty projects, and smiles about learning an old-fashioned way of doing things. Shop Talk is the fun tidbits of news!
The first step was to cut out all the various pieces from the sweet cherry and polka dot material! It was like gathering all the ingredients to bake a cake!
The next step was to create the perfect circle to hand sew onto the center of the Dresden. This was more easily accomplished with a little help from the directions in the Mini Dresden Plate Kit Pattern.
Next was working with the zipper. It is always so rewarding to sew the zipper in and then slowly and carefully snip out the basting stitches to reveal the actual zipper and voila! There it is! And it works!
Before I began working on the pouch, it looked a little overwhelming, but by following the directions and piecing and sewing it together slowly, just one step at a time, it all went so well! I pinned and sewed, and pinned and sewed until the pouch was a whole piece.
