Triple Zippydoodah

__________________________

Yay I made one!  I dithered about the fabric for a bit [a couple of weeks] so I finally went for it this afternoon after work and errands.  I set my mind to it and got it done! 


I love the graphic green/white/blue/grey fabric that I used - they are all my favourite colours in one fabric!  In the Flickr group someone had put a 'D' ring on their little Triple-Zip pouch so I borrowed that idea for my own too - and it worked!


My corners are nice and crisp (some miracle happened to allow this!!) and I am thrilled with how the zips turned out too!  Mr Toyota doesn't have a zipper foot so I just sew with my eyes closed [not really] and hope for the best and somehow it worked!  Ok, there are a few wobbly stitches here and there, but generally it looks pretty good!
  

I love my new little Triple-Zip pouch!  Now I'm off to add it to the dozens and dozens already in the Flickr group


If you want to make your own Triple-Zip pouch, here is the link to the FREE tutorial.  It is rather clever and comes together quite quickly.  Make sure if you print the tutorial to do it in colour so you can see the pictures better and understand what needs to be done.  There are fab tips and tricks in the Flickr group too so check it out.  Have fun!

Looks fab to me, great colours, good work. I am so determined to make one before the end of the month, as I'm slowly getting through my WIP's and UFO's! : )

Charlotte said...

that's fab! I am very scared of those pouches for some reason. I think I would need a very large G&T before I could try it!

Di said...

Love your crisp fabric choice. You have done a really good job and I like the addition of the D ring. it is perfect. Di x

Looks gorgeous, I love the colours! I was lucky and got one in a swap last year from Leanne, they are so useful :D

So cute! Love the added tab... I'm procrastinating on mine - I think I have a case of Zipper Intimidation.

Very cute and love the side D link!

The G & T 'dose of courage' might lead to a 'Quadruple' Zip Pouch, by mistake!!

QuiltCandy said...

Wow this looks very complicated and gorgeous in equal measure! A lovely finish, well done.

Izzy said...

Love it! The D ring is a great idea.

That zippered pouch is so neat! I think I'd be a bit intimidated by all the zippers--working on a zippered Bible Cover right now but three zippers?! shucks! love it though.

Liz said...

I love your Triple Zip! I also really like how your zipper tabs match each kind of fabric--it really makes the pouch look pulled together. Visiting from the Let's Get Acquainted link-up!
