I’m not sure why it was marked down, the fabric is gorgeous. It doesn’t show in the pictures, but it’s a very fine woven pattern so the fabric is very smooth and crisp.
I’m sure you’re starting to doubt me because I’ve been trying several sewing projects recently, but I’m REALLY not a seamstress. I had to take 15 minutes to figure out how to change to the zipper foot for this project (and the actual foot change takes about 4 seconds). So, if I tell you that I could tackle this project twice, then anyone can do it.
It took me about 30 minutes to sew the first bag. But that was probably because it’s the first time I’ve ever sewn a zipper!
I’m thrilled with the way the first one turned out. My oldest teen daughter quickly claimed this one, so I’ll take that as proof of success.
I sat in the glow of the oldest teen daughter’s compliment for about 2 minutes until I realized I’d better make another one quick for my younger teen daughter!
20 minutes later, Whew, crisis averted! My youngest daughter also grabbed up her bag and ran with it.
And she didn’t even notice that somehow I sewed the tail of the zipper into the bag on the second one (can you tell on the back bag, top right side?) Still not sure how it happened, but the bag works and looks just fine.
So, not only did I learn how to sew a zipper into a pouch, but I earned a rating of two happy teen daughters with this one. That makes me a happy mama.

One of our favorite crafts were these candy graduation cap favors. They’re easy to make and were a big hit with the graduate…
