Strawberry Biscuit Zipper Pouch

One of my favourite Fabric Designers Elea Lutz will shortly be releasing a new fabric collection, Strawberry Biscuit.  To me the collection is reminiscent of the Golden Books I had as a child, with kittens in bows, harmonising blue birds and sweet strawberries, its almost guaranteed to inspire.  And if you haven’t seen Elea’s work you should definitely have a look at her website.

Strawberry Biscuit is being released in Australia in May (and in even better news one of my favourite fabric stores Ministry of Fabric will be selling it!!)  However thanks to the generosity of one of my Instagram friends, who won a pre release bundle in a recent
giveaway, I managed to get my hands on some of the prints last week.  And it did not disappoint, it inspired me so much I actually tackled one of my sewing phobias – a zipper – to make a little zip pouch.

Adding in fabric at either ends of the zippers prevents it disappearing into the edges of the pouch

To add in the zipper without it disappearing into the corners of the pouch, I used this tutorial which explained how to add in a piece of fabric at either end of the zipper to essentially extend the zipper length.  And ta da a completed strawberry zipper pouch.

Ohh and if you love fussy cutting hexies the cheater print in the collection makes perfect fussy cutting for 1/2 inch hexies!
