So I’d been admiring the Craft Passion Wide open pencil case for awhile, but the thought of doing piping on the outside of a bag around curves was making me hesitate (for good reason, apparently!). I finally decided to just try it and hope for the best!
I’ve been resisting making these macaron zipper pouches I’ve seen all over the internet because they looked really putzy and their small size didn’t look super useful. But I finally broke down (the cuteness won me over). I’m glad I did!
Ok, less than a minute after I found the Devon pouch pattern it was in my cart and on my list for this project. It just looked so stylish and well-crafted! I was so right to pull the trigger on this one—it is definitely one of my top five favorites of the whole series, and will feature in many teacher’s gifts in the future.
I’ve been wanting to make a little boxy pouch in this series, but I had so much trouble finding a free tutorial for one I liked and hadn’t made before! Finding a good boxy pouch pattern isn’t easy—so many have raw edges inside, which kind of drives me a little crazy.
I came across these little Lilly cosmetic bags by Lala Fab when browsing zipper pouch ideas and had to make them! The pattern is free, but it’s in German. My German is not good and I still managed to muddle through, so if you have some experience with zippers I think you can handle it.
