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 my project is finally complete! I thought it would be fun to do a little wrap-up post where I handed out awards to some of my favorite projects of the series. Without further ado, the categories and winners are: Best quick teacher’s gift (and wouldn’t drive me crazy sewing a bunch of them at the last minute): Devon pouch. Honorable mention: What’s in your bag Best special gift (more time consuming, but worth it): Necessary clutch Smallest & cutest (and would make again): Easy Wonder clip bowl Best bigger bag: Maker’s tote in Small. I love how much the bigger one holds, but for more everyday needs, the smaller works better. Plus I really like the patchwork on the exterior of the small one! Best pencil pouch: Sleeping bag pouch Best makeup or travel pouch: Set to go cosmetic case Best set: Mini notions pouches Best for Bullet journals or sketchbooks: Creative maker case, size Medium Best organizer bag: Sew together bag Now, you’d think I’d be REALLY tired of zippers at this point, and I have to admit, when I was working hard to finish them all before my big trip, I was definitely tired of zippers for a bit. But now that I’ve had a break from them, I kind of miss the fun of a quick project. I’ll definitely make more zippered projects in the future, just not quite at the same pace. Ha! When I started this project I wondered if I’d run out of ideas or patterns that I wanted to try. I had nothing to worry about! Not only did I easily find 52, but there were even a few projects that didn’t quite make it into the lineup. If you’re curious, this Fall or Winter I’ll be tackling the Summit backpack and the Mini sew together bag when I get my machine back. I’ve really enjoyed sewing and writing this series, and hopefully I’ve inspired you to try a zipper project of your own!
