If you’re new to my 52 zippers project, you can read the backstory, see all the zipper pouches, and download basic zipper pouch instructions here.

So this week I wanted to play with an extremely small amount of my completely out of control selvage collection. I sewed two sets of strips onto 6″ fabric foundations at a 30 degree angle, making one the mirror image of the other, and with a matching rainbow gradation on each side. I used Roxanne Glue Baste-it to secure each selvage before I stitched it to the foundation to avoid shifting and I think it worked pretty well!

I have been wanting to make some bigger pouches so I added a couple of inches of this black Pearl Bracelet print by Lizzy House to the bottom to make it bigger. The reverse side is all the Pearl Bracelet print.

I also used another metal zipper because I am loving how the metal zippers look. I had ordered too many for a previous handbag project and I’ve almost run through them all already! I’ll have to order more soon.

I lined it with the same Pearl Bracelet print. I used up almost all of the fat quarter I had! Yay!
