Hello!

I've just made a small army of owl zip pouches. I think I'm in love. I would have continued making them until my fingers fell off but I ran out of four inch zips.

Sorry about the links instead of pictures. This is only my second post so I guess I only have 8 more posts to go before I'm allowed that. Smiley

They are all fully lined and most of the fabrics are either reclaimed from vintage clothes or are vintage fabrics my Nan gave me.



Opinions/critiques welcome.

Your 'parliament' of owl pouches are very cute, but I am partial to most things owl!

Great job.

Thank you! I'm pretty partial to owls, too. These are the smallest ones I've made but a few weeks ago I made some huge ones as cushion covers for my sofa.

They're adorable!  My favourite is the ruby red (corduroy?) one, middle row right - I like her sassy attitude Cheesy

If you're using regular plastic zippers you can use longer zippers and just sew across the plastic to shorten them - I find it easier to work with the bigger ones and size them down, rather than to fiddle with the little ones with these fat old fingers, lol.

Oh! I do have a bunch of plastic zippers that are 7 to 9 inch. I've never shortened a zipper. By sew over, do you mean I can do that with my machine stitch or do I have to hand sew it?

Thank you!

I love frogs and crafting in no particular order.

These are adorable! Did you make the pattern yourself? You did a good job.  Smiley

Thanks! Yes, I made the pattern myself. I generally do because I can't find what I'm looking for pre-made.
