About this deal

Using the zipper foot on your sewing machine, topstitch a straight line across the zipper end tab. I will often create two parallel lines approximately 1/8″ apart, or stitch straight over my first line of topstitching for some added strength at this point. Place the front pouch exterior piece right side up. Centre the zipper, teeth side down with zipper pull to the left, aligning the top edges. Baste zipper in place. It makes sense to always use a Faraday bag when the car is on your driveway or in a garage, but also when you’re away from home, because thieves often operate in car parks. We’re big fans here at Have a Mooch, ours comes everywhere with us and gets a regular outing as our youngest tries to keep up with his big brother. They make a great gift for a new mum, or for your friends and family once their little one starts getting mobile. While this seems like it should be a fairly easy step, the transition between the bulk created on the exterior side and that of the lining can be difficult for some sewing machines to handle. You may find a walking foot to be helpful.

Red Fabric – (2) 1-1/2″ squares, (1) 3-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ unit, (2) 2-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ units for zipper tabs.I like to press the seam allowance under to give me a nice easy press line to use as a guide when hand stitching. You can use either a ladder stitch or slip stitch if you prefer. I made a couple of these pouches last Christmas after being inspired by a similar one Susan @thefeltedpear shared on IG. I played around with the proportions until I was happy with the size and shape, and scribbled down all my notes in my pattern drafting notebook. This year, when I decided to make a couple for my nieces I went straight to my notes and got to work – everything is so much easier when the hard work has already been done for you, so I thought I would share my process here, on the blog, so you can make some pouches in time for the holidays too :). NOTE: This method is suited to plastic zipper types which can easily be trimmed and stitched through . Metal zippers can not be so easily manipulated, and therefore it is best to determine the pouch size based on the size of the metal zipper. NOTE: Before proceeding any further, open the zipper at least half way. If you don’t do this now, you won’t be able to turn your pouch inside out to complete it ;). Step 4: Final Assembly

Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew together the red and white units to create the red cross. Then sew the side panels, followed by the top and bottom units as shown below. Place the lining piece wrong side up on top of the piece just sewn. Pin, glue or use clips to secure the lining in place. If you haven't taken a training course with Dark Angel, you should consider it. I took the direct action response training, and it was fantastic. Taught by experienced personal, with real life experience which will hold your attention through out the course!Starting with the end beginning with the zipper pull, trim the ends of the zipper tape so each side extends 1/2″ beyond the metal teeth stops. Fold the zipper tab in half widthwise with wrong sides together. Press. Unfold and then fold each short end in to the centre crease as shown. Fold in half again. Press. Make 2. Note: As you can see in the image below, I don’t move my needle closer to the zipper teeth, which is an option. I like to see the accent colour of the zipper tape and find not having to move my needle more helpful when switching between feet. However, all sewing machines differ in the type of zipper foot they have and the finish they provide, so don’t hesitate to experiment with this step to see what works best for you. Alternatively you can stitch the sides starting at the bulky centre around the zipper and only stitch down the side, then flip the piece so you can stitch the second side also starting from the bulky centre. Then stitch along the bottom separately. You would then do the same thing for the lining side. Navy Exterior Fabric – (1) 2″ x 3-1/2″ unit, (1) 5″ x 3-1/2″ unit, (1) 9-1/2″ x 2″ unit, (1) 9-1/2″ x 3″ unit, (1) 9-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ unit.
