Alright. So there’s still one problem with my zipper ends (that’s the crunch in the upper right corner of the second photo), BUT I think I’ve figured out what I did wrong (I sewed through the tabs when putting it all together, when I should have sewn right up to them. Which is going to be harder to actually do than it sounds, but at least I am aware of the problem!).
But look at it! Isn’t it cute? (Those pics are not the same size, but it’s the front and back view of one pouch.)
It’s a perfect size for carrying a few things, like a wallet and phone, or sanitary stuffs, or whatever. Once I get the supplies I’ve ordered, I’ll add a little strap that clips on to make it a wristlet. Future versions will use fabric for that D-ring tab instead of ribbon–I thought I’d like the ribbon, but I don’t.
I’m excited to make more of these! It was fun to watch it come together.
