After my Bernina introductory course, I decided to make quilted zipper pouches for everyone on my Christmas list. I think I finally got it right.

Here is one I made for my sister-in-law who just had a little boy. His nursery is monkey and Safari animal themed. I used orange thread over the Monkey patterned fabric.



The only change I would make for the next one is topstitching the fabric and zipper together on the fabric instead of on top of the zipper. However, I sewed the zipper in two different places to reinforce the pouch.

I'm extremely proud of the boxed corners because it took a lot of trial and error.



My husband was thrilled that I finally used the fabric labels he got me a couple years ago.



I'm going to make more using Wizard of Oz fabric, coffee fabric, sports team fabrics, gnome fabric, and Grinch fabric. I'll probably fill the pouches with goodies.

However, I'd love the make some more masculine ones for the guys. I'm open to suggestions.

Right now, I'm just quilting with a walking foot. I haven't tried quilted blocks or piecing just yet but I hope to give it a try soon.

Thank you both. I am really proud of them and I can't share them anywhere else without ruining Christmas surprises.

Great ideas, Sharalee.

Thank you so much!! I made lots of sideways corners, corners that were too small, and corners that had a tiny opening before I made this one.
