I can't quite believe it but today I managed to start and finish three projects!

3 small tablecloths, a dust cover for my sewing machine (out of the same fabric as this pouch) and a bag/pouch to hold ongoing sewing projects. I have been meaning to make all of these for quite a while now and just suddenly had the urge to do some stashbusting! This is also my first attempt at sewing a zip into something, not sure how I did but it looks ok to me!

All / any comments welcome Smiley

Wow! You are a busy bee! The zip looks great. I never thought of a bag to hold in-process work. I'm always shoving it all off to one side and coming up one bit short later. Good idea!

Go you! I don't think I've ever been that industrious.  Tongue Your bag (and zipper) look great - excellent choice of fabric too. Smiley

The zipper looks good especially for your first try. I would only change one thing. I usually topstich along the edge of the fabric to give things a more finished look and to get the fabric to lay flatter. It also keeps the lining from getting stuck in the zipper later. There is a tutorial somewhere on the site on how to do it.

My mom taught me to "stitch in the ditch" beside a long flat zipper like you have...you could google that technique, too. It does help it keep from bunching or getting stuck!
