Ooh, what a great hoop!


I made these zipper pouches for a women's shelter that my DIL and I are now working with on a regular basis, thanks to GISHWHES!



I'm gratefully taking donations for zippers or completed pouches, if anyone would like to help out with this project! 64 pouches is a LOT.  Grin

18  Zippered pouches for charity in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bunny1kenobi on: August 28, 2017 08:57:56 AM
My DIL started working with a women's shelter because of GISHWHES! It's really rewarding to be helping them out in conjunction with local food vendors. We take a delivery to them every Thursday, and we just love doing it!  There are 64 ladies in the shelter, and they don't have much. Many of them show up with the clothes on their back. They are in great need of personal care items, which we have been trying to round up for them.

In the meantime, I'm working on making these zippered pouches, and possibly some drawstring bags for them to put some of their personal items into. If any of you lovely crafters out there would like to donate zippers, or completed bags, send me a PM! We'd love the help! Here are the bags I've done so far:



I found the tutorial for them on here years ago, but have no idea where, so here's a link to instructions that I posted in the Nerd Games thread:

Prompt: August 2- Kraken's Tentacles
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Halloween project
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: I made this for the Vintage Halloween swap. I was very pleased with how it turned out, and it took quite a while to make it work the way I wanted to! It required a lot of slimy, sticky modpodge to make it. It is on its way to my partner, Joyful Clover.

Prompt: August 4-Giant Eagle Feather
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points: Giver, Engineering
Project Name: Zipper pouches for TLC
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: These are 4 of the zipper pouches for the women's shelter. I'm including a tutorial, so that anyone else who'd like to make them to donate can! (Nerds are the BEST!) They are very lightweight and poofy and airy.
Project Picture:



Cut fabric measuring 8 inches by 11 inches. I used 7 inch zippers. Pin the zipper face down along one of the 8 inch sides and stitch, then lay the other side of the zipper tape, face down on the other 8 inch side. Like so:

Once the zipper is sewn on, on the right side, press the fabric away from the zipper. Try not to crease the fabric where it folds. Tricky. You'll need to unzip the zipper all the way to topstitch the fabric on either side of the zipper.

Next is the only tricky part of the project. Lay the bag with the right sides together, zipper side facing you. You want to center the zipper, then fold the sides of the bag in toward the zipper. The inner folds don't need to meet, but they should be under the zipper tape at least. I'm  including several photos of this because I understand it's kind of confusing.



Move the zipper down about half way, then stitch the open ends of the bag closed. I used about 1/4 inch seam. Trim the zipper ends and threads, then turn right side out. Voila, c'est finis!  Cheesy

Brief Description: Four more pouches. I have now completed 1/8 of what I need. This may take a while.... Roll Eyes

So many amazing pieces on here! Everyone brought their "A" game to the party, apparently!  Grin  The leafy twig, the shark, the crystals and gems, wire wrapping.... wowza! This is a very inventive and creative group!

I got a couple of lovely things from my last two partners!

From La Chapa:



A red clay steampunk heart! Perfect length, too! I wore this out on Date Night this week.

From Rockingbearranch:



There are real watch parts in this assemblage, lots of wire features! She was nervous about gluing everything down, so I'll take care of that, no worries. She also sent along some extras, which I'm looking forward to using in future creations:



Thank you both so much! I've truly loved this swap!!
